While the west coast of Barbados is well known for its luxurious resorts and calm waters, the east coast is a completely different experience that should not be missed.

The Wild and Scenic East Coast

The east coast of Barbados is a majestic coast with a wild. untamed beauty. While world-famous for surfing, most of the beach is unsuitable for swimming. Locals know where the tide pools are and often relax and watch the fish when the tide is low. One of the most popular destinations on the east coast is Bathsheba, a picturesque village that is home to the famous Soup Bowl – a world-renowned surfing spot. Here, you can watch surfers ride the waves or take a surf lesson yourself.
