Archer's Bay

At Archer’s Bay in Barbados, this is where the Atlantic Ocean starts to over-power the calmer Caribbean Sea. This bay is located to the west, near the northern tip of the island.

The rugged Archer’s Bay is a popular spot for picnicking with the locals, but is not well-suited for swimming. Rough seas with serious undertow and large waves dominate this beach most of the year.

Cliff-top to this cove is a rustic grassy field with a number of casuarina trees for shade and an amazing view of the ocean battering the jagged rocks below, and the many interesting rock formations.

Archer’s Bay can be found on the North Coast of Barbados in the parish of St Lucy.
