Shark's Hole Bay

Shark's Hole Bay At Shark’s Hole Bay there are no sharks as the name might imply, but it is home to a gorgeous little secluded hideaway with aquamarine tranquil waters and soft pink sand.

This protected cove is arguably the most serene beach on the southeastern coastline and is probably the smallest bay as well.

Shark’s Hole beach has amazingly calm shallow waters with no undertow, and is almost enclosed like a big natural pool by the reef located a short distance from the shore.

This beach is surrounded by low sea-cliffs and fronts a vacation villa, while featuring interesting rock formations seaside and a meticulously landscape grounds dotted with swaying coconut trees Cliffside.

Shark’s Hole Bay is a nice beach for snorkeling with lots of sealife, especially along the reef and the base of cliff’s ledge.

Shark’s Hole Bay Beach can be found on the Atlantic Ocean side of the island, on the Southeast Coast of Barbados in the parish of St Philip.
