Caribbean Consultants Ltd. had its beginnings as a holding company for the construction company formed in Barbados in 1973 when Angus and Richard Edghill, both Civil Engineers started Edghill Associates Ltd. They were awarded contracts to construct bridges, warehouses, hotels, and office buildings in Barbados, and expanded throughout the Caribbean, specializing in marine projects during the 70s and 80s.
From the early 90s onwards, while the construction arm of the company continued projects outside of Barbados, Caribbean Consultants Ltd. went through a period of local expansion.
Nestled near the southern tip of Barbados is Freights Bay, a scenic spot that is a favourite of locals & visitors learning to surf.
As you arrive at Freights Bay you’re greeted by a panoramic view of the turquoise waters with white-capped waves rolling in. On the cliff top are a few shaded benches and a beautifully landscaped lawn where you can watch the waves and surfers. This is also a wonderful spot for enjoying dramatic tropical sunsets. To the right is the fishing village of Oistins which is famous for its fish-fry especially on Friday and Saturday nights.
To access the water and small beach, head down the steps.
The conditions at Freights are perfect for beginners and intermediate surfers, with a sheltered bay, long left break, off-shore winds, and little current. Many local surf schools use Freights as a teaching spot. Peak surfing season here is between November and April.
