Holidays.Barbados.org is pleased to present ‘Escape East Barbados‘ a new page to help travelers who are looking for something off the beaten track. The east coast of Barbados is noted for its rugged windswept barren wilderness. It s an an escape away from the crowd in a land with chalk mountains and unusual geological features. It may seen a bit odd that we say this place is both invigorating and an escape. In fact it is both of these as you will see in the video, and as the page explains in some detail. You can’t help but feel invigorated with the wind blowing as it does; fierce and powerful yet oddly caressing. The place is far away, and its tucked away hideaways are a perfect retreat from the busy world.
UNESCO Heritage Site Nomination
Strange as it may seem Barbados is increasing in size because of its unique underlying Caribbean tectonic plates that are pushed together to form a prism. Continued pressure further deforms and shoves the prism higher elevating Barbados further out of the sea. Much of the anomalies and structures are in the area called the Scotland district which has been proposed as a UNESCO Heritage Site:
As noted in the UNESCO Heritage Site proposal “Physiographically, the Scotland District appears as a half bowl containing the hilly highlands of Barbados, with a dense, in parts jungle-like vegetation, quite unlike the rest of the island, which is rather flat, deforested, and commonly used for agriculture.” All this and more have gotten the islands’ east coast nominated as a potential UNESCO Heritage Site. http://whc.unesco.org/en/tentativelists/1993/
The East Coast is unlike any other part of the island. It is special in many ways, among them are the distinctive hotels, bed and breakfast, quaint Inns, guest houses, villas, apartments and cottages: All fit into the rough coast terrain with their special rustic charm. Like the Atlantis Hotel a four star hotel on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. Windswept and exposed to raging waves and the constant ocean spray, it melds elegance with its very own raw charm.
The East Coast Travel Personas
Travelers who love to escape east for a holiday getaway may have many personas, but all have one thing in common: They love the raw beauty of nature and the feeling of freedom that comes with being out in nature, free to explore, breathing in the breeze and the surf salt air. They are avant-garde, artisans, scholars, trendsetters and mystics. They may be artists and architects who love to explore and commune with nature. Some are soulful and love quiet hideaways some are open and love to mingle with like minds.
The East Coast caters to all with very specific places to stay. Using the vacation planner, travelers will find that the personality matching system will pair them up with the hotel that most suites them personally. All places to stay have been classified by personality and are recommended by their psychological fit. It’s a fun and simple systems that helps travelers find the perfect match for holidays and makes searching for options. Unlike many travel planning systems it is precise and does not overwhelm.
