Bathsheba is a quiet seaside village located on the east coast of the island. The area has long been known for its invigorating and rejuvenating nature, and as far back as the early 1900's was referred to as a "health resort". The railway line passed through Bathsheba and stopped at the small train station, bringing visitors and staycationers to the beach houses.
The long stretch of beach at Bathsheba invites you to stroll, taking in the magnificent rock formations offshore, and stopping occassionally for a refreshing dip in the natural ocean pools.
This is also a wonderful area for beachcombing, and you can quickly gather a collection of tropical seashells and sea fans. Collect a few small rocks as well, they make excellent paper weights and are a lovely reminder of your stay in Barbados and visit to Bathsheba.
Feeling adventurous? Hike the old train line from Tent Bay (at the southern end of Bathsheba) to Belleplaine. Stop for lunch at the Sand Dunes Restaurant in Belleplaine and either stroll back to Bathsheba or catch the bus.
Surfing in Bathsheba is a favourite activity for local and visiting surfers. The most popular spot is the "Soup Bowl ", named for the foamy surf generated as the powerful Atlantic waves reach the reefs and shore. Contact a local surf instructor for board rentals, lessons, and to act as a guide.
