It's oh so quiet on the east coast of Barbados

This is absolutely my favourite part of the island.....ever since I can remember and that goes way-back to the sixties......

The Independent: "Don't come here if you want to see the likes of Michael Winner and Philip Green sploshing about in the clear waters off the Platinum Coast. This is the eastern side of the island, where the Atlantic lashes the coast with a ferocity that means it is largely unsafe for swimming at all. But there is a rugged beauty that appeals to the more adventurous traveller, those who prefer a walk across a wild green headland or a stroll on a beach inhabited only by driftwood. Oliver throws out his hand to draw attention to the breathtaking geological formations that flank the bay, close to where he has been surfing since the age of seven. 'That hill to the left, that's the Sleeping Giant. And that's Lion Pride rock,' he says, pointing to a sphinx-like formation protruding from the waves."
