This small river fed lagoon set among dunes and dry scrub hills of the East Coast gives one the feeling of being on a different island. Also privately owned, Green Pond and environs are at risk of development.

Natural resources

Green Pond is the estuary of the Green River and is one of the four major natural coastal wetlands in Barbados. Although small, wetlands such as these are home to species not found anywhere else on the island.
