The Best Beaches in Barbados

Travel Guide

The reason most people select Barbados as a vacation destination is that it offers such a diverse experience on one island. In fact, there are highlands and lowlands, surf beaches and calm pools you can take your children. The weather is great with average temperatures around 82 F in the summer months with a good trade wind that keeps you cool.

You can find a good hotel package online. We included a car rental because we like to explore. Make sure you take the essentials before flying here, like beach items, snorkel gear, suntan lotion. Because Barbados is an island in the Caribbean and isn’t very large, most food items must be imported and become expensive. Part which is turned into rum.

Here are the best beaches in Barbados.

If you remember the Biblical story, she was King David’s wife and legend has it she bathed in milk. Well, the waters around this area of the island remind you of milk because they are foamy white. The bottom here is shallow and waves churn in. Soup Bowl is an excellent surfing spot, but you can slip in near the shore.

Bathsheba Beach – Close by Soup Bowl is Bathsheba Beach and here you will find some awesome. Millenea of waves crashing here has carved out these pools from the coral surroundings. There is a nice beach here, but most people head for the pools and sit and enjoy nature, and natures whirlpool.

Sandy Lane Beach – Along the west coast there is a well-known golf resort which gave the beach its name because it sits right along Sandy Lane Beach. This is the resort where Tiger Woods was married. The beach is wide and the sand is brilliant.

Bathsheba, Barbados

You would have to look long and hard to find a more beautiful beach than the one at Bathsheba Barbados.

In like manner, Bathsheba’s Pools being rich in minerals is said to be similar to Bathsheba’s bath, giving bathers not only a relaxing atmosphere but many health benefits as well. Many of the first visitors to Barbados came because of the fresh air, sunshine, and a spirit of enlightenment. Our first president, George Washington came here in the mid-1700s in an attempt to help cure his brother Lawrence of tuberculous.

Walking quietly along the white sandy beach, it is easy to realize that paradise has been found. Because the beach faces the Atlantic Ocean, huge waves and rips currents can be encountered in the water, making the beach a better place to walk and wade in the shallow water. Although shallow pools are formed close to shore which is ideal to swim in, it is best to leave the swimming in open water to surfers and experienced swimmers.

Quiet but inviting, Barbados’s coastline is lined with rum shops, guest houses, and restaurants making the tiny island a favorite haunt of not only the rich and famous but the everyday traveler as well. When making your travel plans be sure to place Barbados on your bucket list, not forgetting tiny Bathsheba as you do.…
