If you are a surfer, surf enthusiast or you just generally love outdoor events then you should visit Barbados for the PEG Independence Surf Festival for the ultimate Barbados getaway! All paths lead to the iconic “mushroom rock” at Soup Bowl, Bathsheba where the action will take place from November 6th – 11th 2018. If you’ve never visited, then put aside any thoughts that you may have about the rugged beauty of the east coast. Unlike the polished west and south coasts of Barbados, a visit to Soup Bowl is like no other. Known mainly for surfing, a drive down to the east coast evokes the feeling of being lost in a rugged paradise.
The Barbados flag is emblazoned with Poseidon’s trident for a reason. The waters off this island are nothing more than breathtaking, and pique each sense for an unforgettable experience that is reminiscent of sirens in its allure. The west coast of the island has the glassiest, most lounge-worthy beaches, which creates the perfect environment for watersports and other ocean- related soft adventures that have become staples during every Barbados holiday.

Head on down to Batts Rock, St. James to experience sundowners at La Cabane, Barbados’ newest and trendiest beach bar! With uninterrupted views across perfectly turquoise waters and breathtaking views, La Cabane is a breezy drive away from luxury vacation rentals Senderlea and The newly renovated The Villa & The One at the St. James. Described as “ A place to relax all day, from early morning for breakfast through until late for dinner under the stars.” We’ve been to La Cabane, we’ve seen and we’ve tasted … and it lives up to the description!
The meek north has its historic bounties, and the west prides itself in luxuriousness, but the southern and eastern coasts combined are a cornucopia of everything. If you take a map of the island and trace your finger along the coastline from Bridgetown to Bathsheba, the arc resembles a smile; but, as the saying goes, there is much more to this area than meets the eye. The narrative of these two coasts is a colourful one, and just like protagonists and antagonists of stories, their personalities couldn’t be more contrasting nor their intentions more sundry.
