Barbadians appear to be heeding the Met office's warning to stay out of the water amidst the high swells.

Those swells are caused by a deep layered low pressure system in the North Atlantic Ocean.

That department issued a high surf advisory and small craft warning since Sunday that is expected to remain in place until Wednesday.

Several beaches across the island were empty and dotted with red flags and no swimming warnings as the waters were choppy.

Some of the highest waters were seen at Folkestone along with Mullins and Heywoods.

Some onlookers gathered to look and take pictures of the high swells.
