Beaches of Barbados's insider take:

An utter misnomer, Foul Bay is actually a lovely and largely lonesome stretch of beach on the East Coast, majestically bookended by ragged cliffs. A popular picnic spot for locals, Foul Bay is nearly untouched by tourists. Should you visit some of the island's calm western shores and Harry Smith Beach (on the eastern coast) on the same trip, you'd think you were visiting two entirely separate islands. The dramatic cliffs and crystalline rock pools of Harry Smith beach look like they've been purloined from the Isle of Man. The seascape, backed by a tangle of tropical forest, is romantic, rugged and grand, and a steep staircase will escort you down to wind-whipped waters. Best to arrive by 4-wheel drive; only unkempt roads lead to Harry. Bath is to Bajans what the Hamptons is to New Yorkers, the difference being that Bath remains a rustic retreat, relatively unknown to outsiders. Calm waters welcome swimmers (this is the safest beach on the East Coast), and the shore is trimmed with sweet cottages painted in pastel shades of pistachio and peach.
