East Coast Beaches - Bathsheba

This is the rugged east coast of Barbados, where visitors come to breathe the air, soak in the invigorating wading pools and feel alive. It is breathtakingly beautiful; wide beaches stretch along a dramatic coastline of striking rock formations against which the Atlantic rollers break in cascades of foam. What at first glance appear to be huge boulders washed up on the beach are actually rock formations broken away from an ancient coral reef! The Soup Bowl at Bathsheba is the site of many local and international surfing championships. This is a great place to surf, with steady big rollers coasting in across the Atlantic Ocean. The wading pools are carved out of the inshore coral reef and are a few feet away from the sandy shore. They are several feet deep and you can sit in them enjoying a drink while the surf splashes in, swirling the water around in natures own whirlpool.
