There is no doubt that Sargassam seaweed is a complete nuisance. It is one of Mother Nature’s creations that can wreak havoc on our beaches and is currently making its presence felt in Barbados and throughout the Caribbean. Unfortunately, this annoyance is out of our control and we hope that it disappears as quickly as it appeared. Scientists are still trying to understand it. The root causes are not quite understood, but experts believe that it is influenced by global warming, pollution and disturbance in the liquid boundaries. Other scientists blame ocean currents, ocean temperatures, rainfall patterns, hurricanes and nutrient levels.

We take our environment very seriously at Dover Beach Hotel, making every effort to reduce our carbon footprint by wisely utilising our energy. Solar Water panels and tanks provide warm water to our guests and, of course, reduce the consumption of energy to fulfil our warm water requirements. Our housekeeping team is committed to the use of organic homemade cleaners instead of chemical-laced products to keep our rooms spotless. Our cleaning solutions are created with baking soda, vinegar, and degradable soap, and then “scented” up with peppermint or orange oil for fresh and pleasant aromas.
There is more to St Lawrence Gap than bars and restaurants. In the midst of it all is a quaint place of worship – St Lawrence Anglican (Episcopal) Church, with its spectacular view of the ocean added to its attractiveness.
Barbados is the epitome of island lavishness when it comes to beaches. From the docile west to the temperamental east coast, the island has a bit of everything for beach lovers. Each of the island’s coasts has its own personality. The most popular with sunseekers is undoubtedly the west coast, whose beaches are best known for their upscale environs and calming allure, while the south-east and most easterly shores are a surfer’s dream. The south westerly beaches like that at Dover are home to soft, glowing white sands that are the perfect backdrop for lazy beach days. Fortunately for us, beautiful beachscapes such as these are all we know at Dover Beach, as our beautiful stretch along the coast of St. Lawrence Gap offers the best in beachside therapy right at our doorstep.
