Bottom Bay, Barbados | Beautiful Places to Visit

Bottom Bay, Barbados | Beautiful Places to Visit: "On the southeast coast of Barbados is the lovely and relaxing Bottom Bay. This gorgeous white sand beach is a fantastic spot for a day trip or a picnic. The sound of waves crashing along the shore makes the perfect soundtrack for a relaxing afternoon. The swaying coconut palms create just the right amount of shade over the soft sand. Visitors can try their hand at surfing, though swimming is discouraged at some times of the year due to the strength of the waves. "


Looking beyond Barbados' beaches

Philly.com: "My friend gave me good advice because she had been there, done that: Skip the lush landscape and beautiful beaches in Barbados - every Caribbean island has those - and instead visit two fascinating and historically important attractions in Barbados' capital city, Bridgetown.

A week later, during its Exotic Southern Caribbean itinerary, my cruise ship (Celebrity Constellation) made port in Bridgetown, located in the parish of St. Michael on Barbados' southwest coast. With 80,000 people, this is the most densely populated of Barbados' 11 parishes, and it oozes with British history."


Seaweed threat

Image via Wikipedia nationnews.com: MASSES OF SARGASSUM, a brown seaweed that has been washing up on Barbados’ shores within recent weeks, could pose a threat to the vital tourism industry and sea creatures such as turtles.

Director of the Coastal Zone Management Unit (CZMU), Dr Leo Brewster, said yesterday there was a large quantity of the seaweed out in the ocean, and approaching islands of the eastern Caribbean, waiting to be dumped here in the coming months.
