Tucked away beneath a high coral clifftop on the southeast coast of Barbados, with an exceeding amount of charm, is perhaps one of the islands less known idyllic beaches – Harrismith Beach (sometimes also written as Harry Smith’s Beach).
Though exceptionally stunning, decked with an abundance of swaying palm trees, white powdery sand and diverse shades of sparkling blue and aquamarine waters, Harrismith Beach is not recommended as a great beach for swimming due to its dangerously rough waters and pulling currents out to the Atlantic Ocean.
However, its spectacular view, in addition to the old plantation mansion, provides visitors with great photography opportunities. To get here, travel to the parish of St. Philip, and get off a beaten track and onto an open field until you reach ruin findings of an old plantation mansion with great architectural features. Once here, locate a rock staircase with no hand railings near the overhang, to access the shores of this beautiful beach.
