You would have to look long and hard to find a more beautiful beach than
the one at Bathsheba Barbados. Located on the east cost of Barbados,
Bathsheba  a tiny fishing village ,is home to a small community of
fisherman and their families. Lost in an area of the world that time has
forgotten, they live their daily lives not unlike their ancestors have
lived for generations before them. Living off the land and the sea, they
are able to enjoy life to the fullest without much interruption for the
outside world.

This tiny village visited mostly by surfers and lost tourists is a welcome
interlude from the hectic lives most of us lead. Taking us back to a
time forgotten, when life was simple, Bathsheba has a way of letting us
return to that period of time for a quick remembrance of how life should

Legend has it that Bathsheba, wife of King David, bathed in milk to keep her
skin beautiful and soft. 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 1700’s in an attempt to help cure his
brother Lawrence of tuberculous.

As a result of the popularity of Bathsheba Pools, many holistic health centers have sprung up on the island.

The beach is lined with huge volcanic rocks which gives it sort of an
eerie, out of this world appearance. 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 rip 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 are 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 every day traveler as well. When
making your travel plans be sure to place Barbados on your bucket list,
not forgetting tiny Bathsheba as you do.
