The Nation Newspaper | Private beaches – no way!

The Nation Newspaper Private beaches – no way!: "There are currently no private beaches in Barbados,' it replied to questions from the committee which monitors how countries around the world, Barbados included, were living up to their responsibilities under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
'The beaches are regarded as public property to which all Barbadians have the right of access. In the past, a few hoteliers and other individuals have called for Government to privatise some beaches in Barbados. However, this is a proposition that has been adamantly rejected by the people of Barbados in no uncertain terms and which the various Governments in Barbados have in turn rejected. Additionally, it is not permitted for beachfront properties to block access to the beaches.' "
