Fodor's Review

Although not safe for swimming, the miles of untouched sand along the East Coast Road in St. Joseph Parish are great for beachcombing and wading. As you approach Bathsheba Soup Bowl, the southernmost stretch just north of Tent Bay, you'll see enormous mushroom-shape boulders and impressive rolling surf. Expert surfers from around the world converge on the Soup Bowl each November for the Barbados Independence Pro competition. Amenities: none. Best for: solitude; sunrise; surfing; walking.
