A walk on the wild side…

VIDEO: Walk a windswept Barbados beach in this quiet north-east corner of the island

The sea is rough, but the wind and the isolation are exhilarating

Swim at Long  Pond, but not in the sea. Walk down beach and back along sand dunes

Admire cacti and unusually dry terrain


Walk a windswept Barbados beach

It’s an hour’s walk from Walkers Savannah where you park, to Long Pond.

Walk south along the beach and back along the dunes and head inland to pick up the track.

Flotsam and driftwood may have journeyed 3,000 miles from Africa…

Watch out for sea grape and fat pork, both of which are edible, growing on the beach and the dunes. Goat’s foot (the leaves resemble the animal’s hoof) also make excellent trip hazards.

Crickets, butterflies and wading birds flourish in the harsh environment. Take plenty of water and cover up – there’s very little shade.
