Barkers’ Beach trash mars tourist experience

A West Bay tourism business operator is calling for a regular debris management programme to be enforced at Barkers Beach.

“I have to constantly explain to tourists why they see so much trash on the beach and that it’s because the current brings it on and it gets washed up,” explained owner of Spirit of the West horseback riding business Paul Rivers. “They always ask ‘Isn’t anyone going to clean it up?’ and, honestly, there are some clean–ups but they are not on a regular basis.”

Mr. Rivers brought up the issue at a recent tourism related meeting in West Bay during which he asked Acting Director of Tourism Shomari Scott to sanction a programme to beautify and manage Barkers Beach in West full story.
