Bajans just love their beach culture

Jamaica observer  With the farthest point being just a 30-minute drive from the coast, going to the beach for Barbadians is like the national past time, as one local told the Jamaica Observer.



“All of us as Barbadians grew up on the beach. This was the place to be when there was nothing else to do inland. We head to the beach. It is like past time,” said Marlon Brathwaite, a local physical trainer.



Another local told the Sunday Observer that attempts over the years by investors to privatise the beach have been vehemently resisted by both the Government and citizenry.
