50 Home on Terraced Ridge in Saint Andrew Parish, Barbados

Unlike most of the Caribbean Islands that were created by volcanoes, Barbados was formed by coral reefs that slowly got pushed above the sea. As a result, it has layers of terraces especially in the Scotland District. Many of these coralline rock ridges have become foundations for homeowners who want spectacular views of the eastern coastline. But the area is also susceptible to soil erosion, road washout and landslides during heavy rains.
