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

Watched some amazing surfers and got to experience some ruggedly beautiful landscape. Huge rock formations carved by the sea.

We had not planned to stop here but really glad we did great views over the beach and some big waves rolling in. Big eroded rocks sticking up out of the sea on the main beach makes for a really interesting visit.

We were staying in Porters, just north of Holetown. We did not have a rental car, but found out we could take the small yellow bus for $2 BBD from near the Colony Club Hotel to the main bus terminal at Speightstown. From the terminal...More

The beach is beautiful, but the current and the waves are No joke. There is a lot of seaweed on the beach and it is not a place for a relaxing dip. It is mainly surfer territory. Strong winds and wild waters

This is where the big waves come in to Barbados. Also, where some large boulders have rolled into the sea. Nice scenery and worth a short visit

When I picture myself back in Barbados, this is where my mind takes me. There is just nothing like it. Imagine an expansive, lovely coastline dotted with tide pools full of marine life to explore. Add huge crashing waves as the Atlantic encounters it's first...More

One of the first things you will notice at Bathsheba Beach is the large boulders lining the beach. They are various shapes and forms and quite huge. Our guide told us the area was named after King David’s wife who liked to take milk baths....More

Beautiful very photogenic beach in Barbados although it's on the Atlantic Coast so probably not suitable for swimming due to the strong currents. There are amazing rock formations here, well worth a visit.

We hired a taxi driver/guide, Komal Gabriel, for the day. He met us at the cruise dock and did a great job driving us all over the island. One our stops was beautiful Bathsheba beach. Amazing view! Highly recommend visiting.

The bus terminates on the road in front of the beach so you can’t miss it!
