Ragged Point Beach is located in the parish of St. Philip, on the south-east coast of Barbados.
Ragged Point is on the extreme southeast side of the island, so getting anywhere will take time.
The problem is not distance but road conditions and the fact nothing from there is a straight line.
It can take approximately 30 minutes to get to Oistins while to Bridgetown it could probably take an hour.
See TripAdvisor comments for some distances by car on the island.
Ragged Point Lighthouse – The lighthouse is placed at the easternmost point of the island.
Summer offers favored conditions for surfing.
Offshore winds blow from the south-southwest. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and wind swells and the best swell direction is from the southeast. The beach breaks offer lefts and rights. Even when there are waves, it’s not likely to be crowded. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
The best conditions reported for the surf at Ragged Point occur when a Southeast swell combines with an offshore wind direction from the South-southwest.
