Bathsheba

Eastern Barbados > Bathsheba
Jump to: navigation, search

Bathsheba is a small town on the open and rugged coast of Barbados with breakers crashing in from the Atlantic. The eastern coast of Bim has been compared to the Cornish coast. Bathsheba is the wilder side of Barbados, away from the crowds and swanky hotels and it's worth it.

Get in[edit]

  • Hire a car (preferably open) for a day or two in Barbados and cross the island to the eastern coast to experience this marvelous place and you might just come across a green Barbados monkey on the road to the sea.
  • Buses do run from the capital city, Bridgetown, but not frequent enough to be useful. Expect long walks between sites if you do manage to find a bus out here.

Get around[edit]
