Where our Miami Beach gone?

It’s one of Barbados’ most popular beaches. However, Miami Beach, Christ Church is now completely overrun by Sargassum seaweed.
Today, when our team visited, workmen were busy clearing the area, which has traditionally been a popular recreation spot, especially on weekends.
However, today, there were absolutely no recreational swimmers in sight and all indications were that it would be sometime before the area is ready again to welcome beach goers.20150705_123240 20150705_123136 20150705_123119 20150705_123101 20150705_123054 20150705_123044 20150705_122608 20150705_122601 20150705_122551 20150705_122509 20150705_122500

    I think Miami Beach is the least of our tourism problems, Cuba has now been opened up to the US market and there goes regional tourism….

    I thought visitors were sooo important and especially this time of the year…here goes tourism and the so cleanliness of barbados. It took too long to start cleaning up miami beach…it looks deserted. Its a shame!

    “Where our Miami beach gone?” will likely turn lead to – “Where our tourists gone?”

    Don’t think for one moment that these graphic pictures will not make it to various “officials” and “tour/vacation leaders” and “cruise lines”….coupled with Cuba’s re-entry to the Caribbean market.

    At least one visionary Barbados businessman has been positioning himself in Cuba over 25 years ago for the day many knew would come. Carnival just announced they will be making Havana a new port in 2016. Do we know how many beaches Cuba has? many Canadians already know first hand.

    We have a huge potential challenge ahead and very little professional and viable solutions seem to have been forthcoming or heeded.

    Why were we so quick to jump and accept a change of name to OUR Enterprise Beach. There is not now nor ever has been a place in B’dos called Miami Beach; but we are copycats regardless of anything.Let Miami Beach in the US remain there. ENTERPRISE BEACH in Christ Church has always been ENTERPRISE BEACH and somehow someone decided that we needed to ‘get with it’ and change our History,which they seem to regard as an upgrade for us. Not good enough. It hurts our pride that it is now so called on all maps of Barbados and ads re tourism, etc., and is really offensive. It should not be allowed here.
