Make a holiday rental home or self catering apartment in St Philip, Barbados your home away from home

Things to do on holiday in St Philip, Barbados

One of the most remarkable places to visit on a holiday in St Philip, Barbados, is the Sunbury Plantation, which has been fully restored to its original state, dating from 1660. Complete with Victorian antiques and horse drawn carriages, visiting the Sunbury Plantation gives you a haunting sense of what life was like in Barbados. The picturesque Ragged Point Lighthouse is well worth visiting from a self catering St Philip apartment or villa too. Sam Lord’s Castle is a dramatic sight, and visiting gives you a real since of the violent implications of the pirates which patrolled these waters.

The coastline is a delightful place to walk. Spectacular coastal views, stunning scenery and an array of exotic animals make walking the coastal paths an absolute delight, and it makes a great way to prepare for an evening of sampling the incredibly delicious local cuisine and ice cold rum punch which Barbados is famous for.

Long Beach is also remarkably beautiful and slightly easier to find!
