Prehistoric BarbadosThe map may say Bathsheba, but the locals call it the "Soup Bowl." Known for its world class surfing, the eastern shore of Barbados feels like a throw back to the prehistoric age. Giant boulders tower 50' in the air above the beach, placed there by some great force of nature tens of thousands of years ago. Great waves from the Atlantic Ocean crash against the cliffs in some places and lap gently at the beach in others. A distinctive rock formation - Frog Rock - hovers along the horizon, a couching toad ready to pounce.
This part of Barbados is a far cry from the touristy western shore with its well groomed breaches and high end resorts. The eastern shore is a step back in time - and one of the more visually striking steps in the world.
