Known to surfers worldwide, this crescent-shaped beach boasts one of the best and most challenging surfing venues in the Caribbean. Due to high waves and dangerous undertows, swimming is not recommended here. Only experts should test these waters. Spectators come from around the island to watch international surfing competitions. Held every November when the Atlantic is raging, the Independence Classic is the crown jewel of these competitions. The small village of Bathsheba is located on the northeastern central coast.
