Barefoot on the Beach: Maycocks Bay Barbados20th March, 2014
Maycock's Bay in St. Lucy has been described as a surfer’s paradise (when the swell is right of course), and is one of the few accessible beaches in the North of the island. There are cliffs around the beach, which proudly show off a gorgeous view of an infinite horizon, where the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea meet. When you visit Maycocks Bay, you can also see the ruins of the old Maycocks Fort, which is rumoured to have never-found buried treasure!
Often, big waves will dominate the sea, which makes it a great location to surf. As a result, it is not really ideal for soaking or light swimming. Maycocks Bay feels like an escape, as there are no buildings or houses around the area. The waves break best at low tide, so make sure you check out the times of the tides before you venture out to Maycock's Bay!
