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

Breathtakingly beautiful

Stopped on an all too short break during an island tour. Spectacular coastline, both rugged and smooth. Very friendly locals. Worth a stop or detour on any trip.

We rented a jeep and ventured down to Bathsheba in hopes of seeing some surfers. The day we went we didn't see any due to harsh water conditions but we still got some incredible shots with our cameras and enjoyed walking along the beach and viewpoints. It was an incredible landscape and a great spot to spend a few hours... More

Bathsheba is in a relatively remote eastern location, well worth the drive. The beach is rocky and has gorgeous large boulders scattered on the shore. This beach is not one for swimming, but the views are great.

This beach was very beautiful for pictures, but not for swimming. If you are an experienced surfer though, this is where you want to go. It is a soup bowl.

Visited Bathsheba to get a different view of the island. Much more rocky and pure. Not a place to go for a swim or soft sand but an amazing view. Climbed up a slight hill for a great view of the soup bowl and caught a couple of surfers out. Nice little beach side restaurant as well. Was saddened however... More

A must for any visitor to Barbados, amazing surf and rocks sculptured by the sea. Strong currents mean no swimming

Absolutely gorgeous views at this beach, we stopped by on our Cost to Coast tour offered through Royal Caribbean. The rock formations are incredible and the crashing waves make it picturesque. I would definitely go back if traveling to Barbados in the future.

What a wild surf. Big waves, choppy surf, and crazy people riding surf boards having the time of their lives.
