  • Overview

    Located on Barbados’ stunningly beautiful, but untamed, east coast is picturesque Tent Bay. Its just to the south of Bathsheba, in Saint Joseph parish. Colourful local fishing boats make their way in and out of the bay in the morning and evening when the sea conditions permit, however the lively waves and strong currents of the Atlantic make the east coast of the island more suited to walking, sunbathing or windsurfing rather than swimming. Up until 1937 the Barbados railway used to run by Tent Bay, but the poor design and placement of the track, and the high tides of the Atlantic, contributed to its demise. The Andromeda Gardens covering six acres and home to 600 species of plants, are just inland from Tent Bay.
