THE MANAGEMENT of the Crane Resort and Residences in St Philip appears to be losing the battle against Sargassum seaweed, which is overwhelming many of the island’s most popular beaches.

Management of The Crane earlier this week spent significant sums to remove tonnes of the brown ocean plant that had covered the popular beach.

However, within 48 hours of that massive clean-up, the beach was again covered by seaweed making it difficult for guests to enjoy the normally splendid shoreline.

The South and Eastern coasts of Barbados have been inundated by the brown plant material which presents a pungent odour when it is decaying. (GE)
