Tent Bay, St. Joseph, Barbados

The header images for XraYZulu were all taken at Tent Bay, St. Joseph, Barbados.

Tent Bay is home to a small fish market, colourful local fishing boats and the Atlantis Hotel. It’s in the parish of St. Joseph, with Martin’s Bay and Congor Bay to the south, and Bathsheba and Cattlewash to the north.

In days goneby the old railway stopped in Tent Bay on its way from Bridgetown to Belleplaine. The Atlantis Hotel one of the first hotels to exist on the East Coast of Barbados – made possible by the new railway line that was constructed in 1883 opening up the Atlantic East coast as a holiday destination for Bajans.
