Soup Bowl, Bathsheba

4.7
#4 of 8 in Things to do in Saint Joseph Parish
A surfer’s heaven, Soup Bowl features soft golden sand, boulders sticking out of the water just off shore, a scenic hillside abundant with palm trees, and consistent waves produced by the wild waters of the North Atlantic Ocean. The popular surf spot is home to annual international and local competitions. With some luck you’ll spot beach crabs making their way across the sand. Make sure you bring food, drinks, and plenty of sunscreen, as there are no public facilities at the beach.
