 Access

Drive north on the Spring Garden Highway out of Bridgetown. At the roundabout at the end of the highway, take the left road. Follow it north for about 0.25 miles, and the sign will be on the left. Follow the road down, and park on the beach. The break will be on right hand side, just look where the lifeguard post is facing

 Additional Information

Park your car, proceed to the sand beach to your right, and paddle out on the right hand side of the rocks. If its breaking, you'll see the peak, paddle straight out to it.

The break: A wedging left A-frame wave. Fast and lots of fun, with good barrel and air section potential. There is only really one peak, with a short right, and the left, so crowds can make it painful. But when its good, sets are usually 4-8 waves long. Its the most consistant of the West Coast breaks, and is the first to start breaking and the last to stop breaking on any north swell.

Atmosphere

Batts Rock has a pretty good vibe. The locals are generally friendly (dont drop in tho), and its popular with surfers/bodyboarders from other coasts. There is the added safety of a lifeguard station, as well as bathrooms and a soda machine on the beach. If you happen to go to the University of the West Indies, you can check this spot from the cafeteria balcony...

One of my favorite West Coast breaks. As consistant as the West Coast can get.

Checking from UWI - If its REALLY big, you can see reefs breaking outside of Batts Rock and Paradise from the cafeteria balcony. But then again, its been YEARS since I've sat out there :-D

- when it says that you can see the break from the cafeteria at UWI, you cannot! trees are in the way..... its about a 5-10min walk down the hill from the school and thats the best way to check it out first.....
