The wild Atlantic waters of the east coast are far removed from the rest of the island – the population is small, the coast craggy and the waves incessant. Bathsheba is prime surfing country, and it's also good for long beach walks that leave you feeling like you’ve reached the end of the world. It’s an idyllic image of sand, sea and palm trees.
If you’re not a great swimmer, this is not really the place to go into the water; rather, enjoy the wave-tossed scenery on long beach walks. Note the iconic Mushroom Rock, one of several rocks carved into shapes that will cause mycologists to swoon.
