Ragged Point is at the easternmost point of Barbados. Follow the east coast road, past Sam Lords Castle hotel, and watch for a large lighthouse. Once you spot the lighthouse, keep driving towards it. Once you are at the lighthouse, you'll be at the top of a 100 ft cliff. You'll want to be surfing on the RIGHT HAND side of the bay.

 Additional Information

I'd advice against parking anywhere except by the lighthouse, alot of the land held there is watched by very zealous people. Rememer to surf the RIGHT HAND part of the bay, the other side of it is deadly.

Atmosphere

The Break: Thick left and right beachbreak waves, breaking in 3-4ft of water. Climbing down the cliff to the water is dangerous, a slip might cost you your life if you are unlucky. Swells from directly east or northeast cause closeouts, but a southeast swell can make Ragged Point really nice. Under headhigh and the wave is fun. Overhead, the pucker factor gets high REALLY quick. It handles wind better than any other spot on the East Coast, and generally has something even when other spots are flat.

General

The cliff makes surfing there something of an experience, but if you like grinding beachbreaks, you'll like Ragged Point.
