Barbados Beaches

East Coast favors huge Atlantic waves that crash along the shore, making these beaches better suited for walking and sunning. But there are a few good places to swim after the waves break over rocks and reefs into small natural swimming pools close to shore. Additionally, the “Soup Bowl” located at Bathsheba is the surfer’s choice and Cattlewash offers a breathtaking landscape. With the constant washing from the Atlantic, the East Coast is also good for beachcombing. Consider these beaches:

Bathsheba
Cattlewash
Bath
Ragged Point
Tent Bay
