This tiny cove on the southeast coast is one of Barbados’s almost secret treasures. Overhanging rocks surround a stretch of brilliant white sand, while a barrier reef protects the inlet from the wild waves and currents of the Atlantic. This sliver of bliss proves that good things can come in small packages. And the name? Derived from a longtime fishing story, apparently. Shark Hole has atmosphere galore, but no sharks.
