Things to do

There is so much to see and do in Barbados. From relaxing on the white sandy beaches, to swimming and snorkeling with the turtles, to sipping a run cocktail watching the sunset!

  • See the local wildlife

    Apart from the green monkey, other animals found in Barbados include the mongoose, eight species of bat, the rarely seen European hare, red-footed tortoise, various species of lizards, whistling frogs and toads.

    Barbados is also a haven for many turtles, including the Leatherback and Hawksbill turtles. In certain areas turtles have become accustomed to humans and are relatively tame and you can swim with them as they feed amongst the coral. The Barbados Sea Turtle Project monitors nesting and hatching activity during the turtle season.

  • Restaurants, Cafes and Bars

    There is an abundance of fine restaurants in Barbados that offer local Caribbean cuisine, seafood,  continental and fusions.

    With a wide range of dining options there is something to suit every taste and budget. By day informal attire is acceptable in most Barbados restaurants, and at night there is a more formal dress code.

    Our top restaurants include Cin Cin by the Sea, Tides and Carizma Cafe.

    Our favourite bars and cocktail lounges are The Lime Bar, The Cliff and Drift.

  • Sports and Watersports

    The crystal clear Caribbean sea is ideal for water sports from snorkelling and scuba diving to water skiing and sailing. Pick up a trip from Holetown beach, right beside the villa.

    Barbados is also home to some of the world’s finest golf courses - there's three to choose from at Sandy Lane, plus there is world class gold at Westmoreland.

  • Barbados Beaches

    Barbados is a beautiful island with wonderful golden sandy beaches and a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere.

    St James Villa is located right on the beach front in Holetown, on the west coast of Barbados.
