Route 2: Tapas to KFC

  • Rain and Clouds

    In all kinds of weather. Rain and clouds create another world of effect and feeling.

    In the distance behind us dark rain clouds hide the sun, it gleams through and lights the sea with a magic effect.

  • Rain Brings Fish

    all sorts of weather on the boardwalk

    Another fisherman casts a line, 'rain brings fish' they say.

    The weather changes quickly in Barbados. Today there are scattered showers as storm clouds from the Atlantic move overhead. Soon they will be gone and it will be sunny again - see a sunny day picture.

  • The Main Promenade

    The main boardwalk promenade

    The main Boardwalk Promenade juts out 100 feet to the sea. It is landscaped with palms and crazy stones with many places to sit.

    It's right in front of Kentucky Fried Chicken, tempting to pick up a snack box and eat by the sea.

  • Playground


    Previously on the edge of an inshore reef, KFC now has a playground at its door and an endless tide of people stopping by.

  • Inshore Pools and Reefs

    Inshore pool

    Along the boardwalk there are many inshore pools and reefs, as well as man made reefs and groins.

    Beaches and places to dip, swim and relax.

  • Tidepools


    Remnants of inshore reef systems -bolstered with new groins to build up beaches.

    At low tide, tide-pools trap fish and sea. Sea cats (small octopus) hide here and are much sought after by local fishermen. Walk early to catch the action!

  • Not tired yet?

    time for a cooling drink
    Good because there's lots more to see!

    Let's skip ahead to Accra Beach and, with the sun at our backs, make our way back to KFC! Let's go!

    If you're ready to turn back, we can retrace our steps from the western end of the boardwalk at Camelot!
