Environment Minister maintains silence on the destruction near Mullins Bay
The government of Barbados authorized groynes to be built into the ocean near the old Kings Beach Hotel. Only a few years later the entire area is suffering as the groynes accelerated the destruction of the area beaches.
“Word is getting out that Mullins Bay is a disaster zone. Pretty soon you are not going to be able to sell holidays, let alone condos or villas, in an area where people do not want to stay unless government does something about a situation that is getting worse by the day.”

Minister of the Environment Dennis Lowe hasn’t said a word about the problem, and citizens in the area have never seen him on the beaches. (BFP editor’s note: Mr. Lowe prefers the Hilton beach where he gets free lunch and a chance to chat with pretty tourists.)
Now tourists are starting to document the destruction of our beaches through photos posted on the internet.
