Surf competitions at a local and international level take place there, and one of its most outstanding features is the big rock that goes into the sea, known in English as Bathsheba Rock.
The country almost always enjoys very good weather, but specially from December to June surfers and even future ones take the chance to ride the foamy waves. This is a very popular sport on the island and the Besabé sites are described among the best in the world to practice it.
Experts say that 15-feet waves can boast enviable curves which allow making sophisticated maneuvers, such as those already known as Alley-oops, Bottom Turn, Cutbacks and Foam Climbs.
Famous surfers plan their vacations to get to the so called Soup Bowl in the winter season, when waves are higher, and with their presence lure many people and parties are thrown at the beach.
Those who don’t dare to surf or dive can relax in an atmosphere decorated with coconut groves, tasting tropical cocktails and enjoying the sound of the sea.
There are options for everybody. In northern Barbados and on the Atlantic side beaches are recommended to enjoy the views, with strong currents and rocky coasts; to the West and Southeast the waters are calmer and the sand softer, ideal for swimming and sun tanning with the family and thus living delightful days of rest.
