So, Where to Surf in Barbados?
The most precious playground for surfers around the world is called the Soup Bowl. It is located on the Eastern side of the island close to Bathsheba, in the Saint Joseph Parish. Soup Bowl is one of the most challenging surfing spots in the world.
Swimming isn’t advised unless you’re a surfer but this is a distinct area embraced by hills and speckled with inimitable rock formations has a lot more to offer. Upon entering Bathsheba you will encounter the small fishing village where you can take in the breathtaking views. You can even have a heart-to-heart with some local Bajans over lunch.
Next on the list of places to surf in Barbados is Cattlewash Beach. This is a very popular spot for surfers, even locals love this place. The surfing is amazing but we would not recommend it for novice swimmers as there are very strong currents. However, there are a few areas nearby that consist of rock pools and you may take a dip in here without any worry!
