Saint Martins - a tranquil slice of unspoilt Caribbean paradise

Located at the easternmost end of blissful Barbados, in the unspoilt parish of Saint Philip, Saint Martins is the archetypal chilled-out Caribbean village. The big draw for most is the direct access it offers to breathtaking beaches like Crane Beach and Bottom Bay – seductive stretches of powder-soft, pink-tinged sand, fringed by swaying palm trees. Overlooking the shimmering, turquoise waters you'll find elegant bars and restaurants with al fresco terraces, where you can toast the sunset with a potent rum cocktail, or feast on fabulous fresh seafood. Saint Martins holiday rentals range from budget-friendly studio apartments to sprawling luxury villas, so there's truly something for everyone.

Things to do

Put the pedal to the metal in Saint Martins

Petrol heads of all persuasions will be delighted by a day out at Bushy Park, one of the Caribbean's premier race tracks. Here, you can enjoy a spot of family-friendly go-karting, or get behind the wheel of a high-performance race car and really put the pedal to the metal. For an enthralling educational experience with a side order of self-indulgence, head to the Foursquare Rum Distillery and Heritage Park. Here, you can embark on a free self-guided tour of one of the world's most prestigious distilleries, before sampling, for a small fee, their award-winning spirits for yourself. At the adjoining folk museum, you can learn all about the key role that rum-production has played in Barbados' history.

Activities

Aquatic adventures around Saint Martins

Pick a Saint Martins holiday rental for your next getaway, and you'll be able to indulge in all manner of enthralling outdoor pursuits. The gently crashing waves at nearby Crane Beach are ideal for a spot of boogie boarding, but the waters are also safe for swimming and snorkelling. If you're thirsting for an adrenaline fix, you can try your hand at pulse-raising activities like jet skiing or wakeboarding. If you're feeling really intrepid, join a scuba diving expedition, and plunge beneath the waves to explore colourful coral reefs and mysterious shipwrecks. If you'd rather stay on dry land, expansive Cattlewash beach is a prime spot for long leisurely strolls and collecting seashells.

Weather

Year-round heat and sunshine in Saint Martins

Barbados' enviable tropical climate makes it a popular destination at all times of year, but Saint Martins holiday rentals are in particularly high demand between December and April, when visitors flock from chillier climes in search of some much-needed winter sunshine. The weather is generally a little milder and drier at this time of year. June to November is the region's hurricane season, but Barbados' easterly location ensures that the island usually avoids direct hits. Heavy rain is more common, but this usually falls in short, sharp bursts, and is swiftly dried up by the beaming sun.

Natural features

Animal encounters around Saint Martins

A highlight of many Barbados holidays is a day out on the ocean, swimming with sea turtles in their spectacular natural habitat. Friendly locals will be all too happy to take you out on a catamaran to explore the glistening coastline, before heading further out to sea to meet captivating hawksbill and leatherback turtles. For further enthralling animal encounters, head to the Barbados Wildlife Reserve, which is around 50 minutes by car from Saint Martins. Here you can get up close and personal with free-roaming green monkeys, vibrantly multicoloured parrots, and all manner of sleek reptiles.
