East Coast Nature Walk

By on 11 Nov, 2015

Barbados is more than just a sea, sun and sand destination!

In 1881, a railway was opened offering a service from the east coast of Barbados to Bridgetown. Primarily used for the transportation of sugar, produce as well as passenger services, the train ran for approximately 53 years with various stops and starts due to maintenance issues as a result of the salty sea spray from the Atlantis Ocean and changing Management several times. 

The Atlantis Hotel was one of the first hotels on the island as a result of the train service as it provided a "staycation" opportunity for "city dwellers" to escape to the rugged and peaceful east coast of the island.
