The east coast of Barbados is just a short drive but a world away from the hectic tourist areas

On the wilder side: "It is best to explore Barbados by car - a rental is easily arranged in advance for pickup on arrival at Grantley Adams International Airport. That accomplished, my wife, Mary Hughson, and I headed east from the airport on the main road - in the opposite direction taken by most tourists.

After reaching the deserted lighthouse atop a cliff at Ragged Point on the southeast corner of the island, we swung north along the Atlantic coast, where rolling waves crash onto windswept beaches. We were headed to the small, east coast community of Cattlewash and the region's largest beach. From there, we planned to explore along the East Coast Road (or Ermy Bourne Highway), occasionally veering inland to check out tropical destinations."
