    Bridgetown Sports & Outdoors

    In early January 2012 I travelled to Barbados on a cruise ship. Prior to my arrival I arranged for a tennis lesson with Duncan Evanson of Advantage Tennis Services. Duncan transported me from the cruise port to the National Tennis Centre (part of the Gary Sobers Sports Complex) and then back again after the lesson. The Centre has four hard courts...

  • Bathsheba Views

    Bathsheba Favorites

    We stayed in the area in 1996 at the time of the surfing competition in November. The coast was beautiful. There are long shallow approaches to the beach so there is a long stretch for the rollers of the ocean to turn into surf. In 2006, we drove through Bathsheba - the surfers (photo 3) were still there even if there was no organized competition....

    Bathsheba Things to Do

    The east coast of Barbados is swept by the Alantic Ocean and is much more rugged than the Cirabbean side. The waves and winds and the tropical plants have created some great settings for photography. We were on a island bus tour so did not stay overnight but there are a couple of hotels in Bathseba.

    Holetown Tourist Traps

    The rastas at Paynes Bay may offer you "smoke or coke". Once you refuse they will not hassle you again. The rastas seemed like good guys. There is a nice coral reef just off the shore at Paynes Bay where i swam with turtles, squid, and lots of amazing tropical fish. You may also get offered some natural aloe vera plant for your sunburn. I got some...

    Worthing Favorites

    Worthing's coastline isn't particularly long at only 2 km. There is some beautiful scenery though, whether it be along the beach or by the waterside properties heading towards Bridgetown. Every part of it is worth a second look. This photo was taken from my bathroom window at the Blue Orchids Hotel ;-)

This (super)market also offers some hot dishes although I never got chance to try any of them as they were always sold out when I stopped in - always a good sign,...
