  1. Would it be possible to take a similar view looking in the other direction down the beach? I can't imagine what it all looks like...

  2. In response to the above comment I have now edited this post to include photos and videos which took today looking south towards Mullins Beach and Gibbes Beach. Indeed, in one of the shots you can see the blue loungers and umbrellas of the Royal Westmoreland Beach Club in front of the Mullins Beach Bar. Photos were taken standing on the beach and in the water in front of Jentillia and The Great House.

  3. Thanks for putting this up although it doesn't make me feel better. It looks like a bomb went off and I can't help wondering what a week of high surf would do. Is there anything someone who isn't in Barbados can do to fight the damage?

  4. Well, a bomb really did go off in our area. It was planted 100 yards north in the form of three groynes built to hog sand for a luxury condo development called St. Peter's Bay Villas. You can help correct this wrong by calling and/or writing the following:

    Dr. Leo Brewster
    The Director
    Coastal Zone Management Unit
    Bay Street,

    Telephone: (246) 228-5950
    Fax: (246) 228-5956

    The Parliamentary Representative - St. James North

    Rawle Eastmond
    Upper Carlton
    St. James

    Telephone: (246) 422-3560

    The Deputy Chairman Barbados Tourism Authority &
    DLP Candidate - St. James North

    Austin Husbands

    Follow "savemullinsbay" on and Retweet all important tweets (hit reply, copy and past message and place "RT" [without quotation marks] in front of it, then send) to help raise awareness of the issues.

  5. This is really beyond belief! How could The Coastal Zone Management Unit stand by and let this happen? What are the peoples' representatives Eastmond and Husbands doing about it? When are those 'groynes' going to be removed? What are those in charge waiting for?
    One can't help but wonder how much money changed hands here to allow such a catastrophe to occur.
