Its along this boardwalk that you stand a very good chance of seeing Turtles. during my 10 day trip I saw hatchlings climbing out of the sand and making their way to the sea and on another evening a turtle laying eggs. David Attenborough eat your heart out

It is a Walk in Paradise and an excellent way to spend an hour or two.
This is a major construction by the Barbadian Government which provides one of the most beautiful walkways I have ever seen.
Running almost on the beach, it provides a real stimulus for the fitness brigade as well as those just wanting to stroll in the sunshine or moonlight.
There is obviously no "Elf & Safety" in Barbados as you have to be very careful with your footing there being no handrails or lighting both of which would spoil the ambience.
This makes for a good experience as well as a daily walk from end to end being good for the body.
Note to the Barbadian Government, can you either knock down or make the owners clean up all of the derelict buildings and sites along this wonderful walkway, they do not do it any favours.

Great for those romantic sun set walks with the love of your life or for an evening run if you want to keep in shape during the vacation

This fairly new boardwalk stretches for around a mile from Hastings, due East. We found it difficult to locate the start at the (west) Hastings end. The east end is easily found behind the Magic Isle apartments. if you want to walk the full length, which is a pleasant experience, you can start from there. The boarding is of good quality, quite handsome-looking, and attracts joggers in the less hot parts of the day. Beside it, in some parts, are remnants of a previous (less successful) boardwalk.

Its right on the sea front and plenty of things to see. There are plenty of restaurants along the boardwalk and a good place if you go jogging
