Places to Visit

Bathsheba Pools

Soaking in the shallow inshore pools on a hot summer day is a favorite cool off for the many local Bajans  who come here for weekends and vacation days.The 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 splashed in, swirling the water around in natures own whirlpool.Rum Punch parties at the pools in Bathsheba are a uniquely Bajan experience.

Soup Bowl Surfing

The Soup Bowl at Bathsheba derives its name from the foamy surf found here and 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.

Barclays Park

Barclays Park,a 50-acre park climbing up a hillside on the east coast of the island,was opened by HM Queen Elizabeth II in 1966 - the year of Barbados independence.It was a gift to the Government of Barbados from Barclays Bank International Limited to commemorate the occasion of Independence.

Tent Bay

This picturesque bay is home to a small fish market and local fishing boats can be seen making their way in and out of the bay in the morning and evening.Like the other stretches of beach along this coast, there are strong currents at Tent Bay and swimming in open water is not recommended.If you visit Tent Bay be sure to have lunch at The Atlantis Hotel, a landmark that has served guests for over 100 years.
