A number of sea-bathers and business people are lamenting that drug pushers and those aggressively confronting tourists to sell them jewellery and other items, have taken over Dover Beach in Christ Church.
So much so, they lament, that the landscape of the once popular beach has changed, in many ways for the worse.
One long-time visitor to Barbados, who called in the DAILY NATION but requested anonymity, said he had watched Dover degrade over the years.
“I have been coming to Dover since I was 17. I live in Stockholm, Sweden now, but I come back frequently and I’m concerned about how this area has deteriorated,” said the man who is now in his 70s.
