Batts Rock Beach is located on the west coast of Barbados, in the parish of St. James. Batts Rock Beach is another hidden treasure in Barbados and is just a short walk from Brighton beach.
Its setting is wonderful in a beautiful park which is currently being rehabilitated by the NCC (National Conservation Commission).
Things to Do
There are picnic tables, showers, toilets, a lifeguard on duty and a children’s playground.
There is no food or drink for sale so it is a good idea to take a picnic. There are lots of tress for shade and you will see Barbados green monkeys running wild.
An ideal location for weddings, this is a very peaceful area with no water sports operating from this beach, however, there it is a good spot for snorkeling.
