t the quiet Graves End Beach
in Barbados you will find small to medium waves and clear waters, with some undertow.
The sea condition here is choppy with a rocky sea-floor, and is not the best beach for swimming, but is nice for surfing and boogie boarding.
Graves End beach is also part of the Needham's Point area
and the Garrison Historic area
, featuring the Graves End Military Cemetery
and St Ann's Fort
There are also a number of trees dotting the shoreline, providing shade for those watching the occasional surfer or just relaxing.
Gravesend can be found on the Caribbean side of the island, on the South Coast
of Barbados in the parish of St Michael.
