Travel Destination :: Bottom Bay in Barbados
By Far, Bottom Bay in Barbados was my favourite trek on the island. It is tucked away on the south coast, and mostly frequented by the locals, so finding it is not the easiest for a visitor to Barbados. You have to know it is there. Parking is easy, and the approach is a cliff overlooking the beach down below.
The beach is semi-enclosed by high coral cliffs, providing a panoramic view of the south shore. The scene is completed by the presence of tall palm trees that add to the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere of the bay.
As I stood on the cliff I could see a fast-moving storm racing across the Caribbean Sea – right for me! My first instinct was to run to the car, which I began to do, though it did not take long for me to stop. I walked back to the edge of the cliff, and let the pounding warm rain drench me. It was as if all cares literally were washed away. Perhaps that is a bit dramatic, but it was one of the best feelings ever. After all, on the beach, one gets wet, right?
If Barbados is your travel destination, escape the crowds and head directly for Bottom Bay. The beach is small but one of the most beautiful you’ll see. And, I don’t recommend letting your camera get soaked in a rainstorm, though mine survived just fine.
