It looks like we are witnessing a new chapter in the Kings Beach saga. After many years of laying derelict the property was debushed and cleaned up over the last few weeks and a construction fence has gone up around it. As per usual here in Barbados no announcements were made about what's going on here - far-less any attempt to involve the local community which has to live with whatever gets built; and then we say we want to be a developed country by whenever ... What we do know is that Kings Beach was sold last September (supposedly to The Great House next door). Then there was a rumour that both The Great House and Kings Beach Hotel were to be torn down to make way for some other tourism development. There was also a rumour that The Great House had flipped the property within days of the purchase. Now there is a rumour that a five-storey condo complex is to be constructed on the site which for years already had the necessary planning approval for such a project. Oi yoi yoi, just what we always wanted in Road View for Christmas - Santa Claus with his bag of fifty more empty and slow-selling condos.
