LONG BEACH

Long Beach on the south coast of Barbados with numerous attractive little rocky coves. >


After Chancery Lane south of the airport the cliff-bound coastline extends for about five kilometers. There are numerous attractive little rocky coves that extend from the northern corner of Long Bay.
Long Beach stretches for more than a mile from Inch Marlow Point to the cliffs at Paragon. A great discovery because it is seldom visited, either by locals or visitors. This desolate spot has a very private setting, it is surrounded by 'rab' land and jagged cliffs. The nearby Long Beach Club has some facilities, otherwise, the beach has only solitude to offer!
It is however debatable how long this will remain so, as plans are afoot for houses, shops and recreational facilities.
