Car: not necessary
This district on the west coast of Barbados is ideal for a relaxing Caribbean vacation. Fitts Village in the parish of St James derives its name from the man who owned that western tract of land undulating toward the Caribbean Sea: Benjamin Thomas Fitt.
It was its placement at the edge of a tranquil and clear blue ocean that would see the Fitts district become a predominantly fishing village. Fishing still goes on there to this day, extending toward its neighbouring Paynes Bay Fishing Market.
The area contains several reefs and with clear blue waters its good for snorkelling. Occasionally you may even spot a turtle surfacing for a breath of air. This is a favourite release spot for sea turtle hatchings rescued by the Barbados Sea Turtle Project. There are areas along this coast that are excellent for swimming. This is typically a quiet beach, and is the ideal spot to relax with a good book under the shade, or enjoying the sea and sun.
The property has direct access to the beach and is within walking distance of shops and restaurants.
