East Coast Beaches - Cattlewash
Cattlewash offers a splendid landscape. With its salubrious climate and fresh breezes, it is an area well known as one of the best health resort areas in Barbados and indeed the Caribbean. Cattlewash is said to have derived its name from the cattle wading into the sea there! The area is a very popular get-away spot for Barbadians, especially during the summer months. Although it is a very scenic and relaxing area, there are strong currents in the area and swimming in open water is not recommended. There are however many pools, surrounded by rocks where one can bathe safely.
