Worth the drive over to see the surf and sea stacks in the Atlantic Ocean. This is not for swimming, but can be a relaxing book reading day at the beach.

Had read about the rugged landscape of the east bay coast of Barbados, but didn't fully appreciate it until we got there. The ocean was extremely rough and powerful on the day we visited - which was windy and rainy - and while it wasn't...More

Beautiful natural coral rock formations rise out of the water at this tranquil Atlantic beach. Natural pools of water abound, for snorkeling, and fish watching. Each pool is like an aquarium with baby fish, sea urchins, and shells. There is a pool almost 8 ft...More

The Soup Bowl is a great destination for Surfers. Parlor is just to the south. It attracts less attention but is still a good wave. The waves can be tackled by a good surfer and can also be big enough for only the pros. On...More
