Barbados East Coast Beach Scenes As you visit the East Coast Beaches of Barbados you will be overwhelmed by its natural beauty and breathtaking views.

In Barbados, the East Coast Beaches are known for their magnificent rugged beauty and spectacular seascape and landscape, making them excellent for nature lovers and a photographer's paradise. These miles of un-crowded beaches are located on the Atlantic side of the island and are great for strolling, tanning, picnics and for those looking for some peace and tranquillity. The high waves and choppy waters from the Atlantic Ocean are excellent for Surfing but be cautious of the rocky bottom and unpredictable currents.

Although no swimming is recommended on these beaches there are some 'natural swimming pools', which are formed from the waves breaking over the rocks and reefs, creating these small pools close to the shore to splash in and enjoy. Ask locals from the area for safe areas to swim.

The landscape of the east coast compliments the impressive seascape with its majestic hills and mountains of the Scotland District moulded inland, forming an atmosphere perfect for hosting International Events. These events range from Surfing Competitions such as the prestigious 'International Pro Surfing Classic' at the 'Soup Bowl' located at Bathsheba to Crop Over Events such as the 'Party Monarch' on the East Coast Road.

Barbados' east coast though suited for those who want to get away from it all is still popular for Island Tour visits, Safari Activities and Hikes. It also has some of the most remote and rustic accommodations and restaurants on the island with extremely glorious views of the Atlantic Ocean. This coast has more active sea conditions than the southeast coast.

For your benefit we have provided a list from East to North of Beaches on the east coast of Barbados with public access, as well as Directions, Activities, Amenities and more.

We have also provided a chart of Beach Amenities on the east coast for those who want a quick look at what each beach has to offer.
