It’s safe to say that the western side of the beautiful island of Barbados is where most of the action takes place and to where most of the tourists flock throughout the year. This leaves the hidden gem of the town of Bathsheba in the parish of St. Joseph on the eastern side of the island in the hands of those in the know. A Bathsheba holiday is guaranteed to bring you plenty of tranquillity, stunning sea views and the chance to explore some of the forgotten areas of this small but stunning Caribbean island.
The eastern side of the island of Barbados is generally not as crowded as the western side, thus visitors will be able to enjoy their stay in Bathsheba in relatively peaceful surroundings. The village does become quite busy at times as it is home to the world renowned Soup Bowl, one of the most prestigious surfing spots which draws keen surfers from all over the globe. As well as trying your hand at surfing whilst on a Bathsheba holiday, other activities such as fishing, diving, hiking and mountain biking are all available in the surrounding area of the village.
If you can tear yourself away from your comfortable Bathsheba holiday rental villa to explore the rest of the island, then a short 6 mile trip south along the coats will bring you to the Morgan Lewis Windmill. The windmill is thought to date back to 1727 and is the last sugar mill to operate on the whole of the island; indeed, it is only one of two sugar mills still operational in the world. Now a museum, the Morgan Lewis Windmill does still grind sugar cane on the last Sunday of every month between February and July each year. As well as finding out more about the history of the windmill in the museum, visitors can climb to the top of the windmill to get some stunning views of the surrounding area.
Should you now be considering reserving a fabulous Ragged Point holiday rental villa then you will be able to experience a typical sub-tropical climate, which means that the temperature is pretty much constant throughout the whole year. The wonderful climate means that most days of the month see the daytime temperature ranging from 28 to 32 degrees Celsius. Generally the wettest months of the year are September, October and November with the village experiencing approximately 23 inches of rainfall during the whole year.
Starting out on a Bathsheba holiday is very easy as visitors can land at Barbados’ only, Grantley Adams International Airport (BGI), which is approximately half an hour’s journey from the village. A number of internationally recognisable airlines offer cheap, frequent flights to Barbados including British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Thomson Airways and Flybe. Passengers can leave the UK from numerous airports such as Manchester (MAN), Newcastle(NCL), Liverpool (LPL), Gatwick (LGW), Exeter (EXT) and Aberdeen (ABZ).
