Owner description: This beach offers spectacular views of the island, but watch out if you want to go swimming - strong undercurrents can make swimming here dangerous.

“Amazing wild side of Barbados.”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

Loved the wildness, greener, bigger palms, bigger views and vistas. Rockpools, look for the ones tucked away in shade, full of local kids - good for a day long session. Others in full sun will cook your kids.
Tricky part, as ever, is navigation. Windows / Nokia navigation does not work. Google maps probably does - use it!

“Beautiful view”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

Made a welcome change to the west and south coast, but unless you are into surfing you do t need to be there for longer than an hour. Watch out for the local street traders they will give you samples and then charge!

“Bring a picnic lunch and hire a driver.”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

This trip was combined with Harrison's cave. We were told that not many taxis would be around at Bathsheba (my original plan was to just hail a taxi when needed). Solid advice. We found a driver "the doc" that we liked and he offered to take us to harrisons and Bathsheba for the morning and wait outside these places for a set amount. Totally worth it. We were able to see the countryside and hear the history. When I am on vacation I like to be the passenger and take it all in. Bathsheba is an interesting location with plenty of unique rock formations. We packed a light picnic and by the time we arrived the kids were hungry. Bring some sand toys or even a kite since it can be pretty windy there. If your kids are eight and up I am sure they will enjoy walking further along the rocky shore and discovering little sections on the beach. If you are travelling with kids younger than 3 I think this may not be the best beach for you. For the life of me I can't remember if it is legal to drink on the beach. If it is bring a few beers and watch the waves roll in.

“Lovely views”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

We visited Barbados as part of a cruise and stopped here on our island tour. It's beautiful! The views are stunning. Walking along the beach is interesting looking at the rock formations and the strong waves and surfers. You can't swim here but it's enjoyable to walk around and take in the scenery.

“Stunningly Beautiful”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

What can really be said about this place other than it's one of the most beautiful places in the Caribbean. The view from the Round House Restaurant is particularly spectacular, plus their food isn't bad either. Swimming is tougher on this side of the island due to currents and rocks, but I saw several surfers who didn't seem to have problems. A must see in Barbados.
