Things to Do on Holiday in Folkstone, Barbados

Whilst swinging on a hammock or lounging around by a pool suits some people on holidays in Folkstone, there is much more to do should you so choose. The Folkstone Marine Park, with its artificial reef, is a veritable playground for water-based activities. The scuba diving here is absolutely amazing, and if you do not have your PADI licence, then you can even get one during your stay. If scuba diving isn’t your thing, then the snorkelling is as equally amazing. Other possible activities available in the area include tennis, basketball, running and cycling.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Folkestone, Barbados

Barbados is quite a small island, and exploring it is simple on either public transport or with a hire car. Certainly a drive around it is recommended, and you will discover many idyllic sandy bays and beaches this way. One of the most popular tourist attractions on the island is the Harrison’s Cave, with its huge caverns and magnificent stalactites and stalagmites. A visit to the Caribbean would not be complete without a rum tour, and if you do not already have a taste for the spirit, you may well have at the end of the tour! Finally, for something different, why not take a day out at the races? The Garrison Savannah makes for an interesting day out, and grandstand seats cost less than ten pounds.

Weather in Folkestone, Barbados

Barbados basically has two seasons – a wet season between June and November, and the dry season between December and May. A holiday in Folkstone is possible at any time of year, but is obviously better during the dry season. Temperatures during this period range between 28 and 31 degrees Celsius, and rainfall is not an issue. The temperatures are, in fact, almost the same during the wet season, but torrential rains can and do occur.

Travel to Folkestone, Barbados

Grantley Adams Airport (BGI) is located on the south of the island, and has connections with the USA as well as Europe. Travellers from the UK can catch Virgin Atlantic flights from London Gatwick (LGW) or on Thomson Airways from Birmingham (BHX). It is possible to rent a car at the airport for your holiday in Folkstone, but you may just wish to hire one locally on a day by day basis when needed.

We spent most of our time outside in the beautiful garden and private pool. The house is about 5mins walk from the very quiet and beautiful Gibbs beach and about 10mins walk from Mullins beach. Monkeys visited the garden a couple of times when we were there which delighted everyone. The service from booking the villa through Maria, to the wonderful staff was first class throughout. Highly recommended. We hope to stay again in future.

I have stayed in various locations, at Hotels, Apartments and Cottages. I never seemed to get both just right at the same time, until now. For the past 7 days I have stayed at Little Reef. A fantastic apartment in the most idyllic location. It was my home for a week, and I loved every minute of it. Only wish I could have stayed longer. The apartment had everything I needed, and more. Travelling alone, I could sit on the balcony in the evening, feeling extremely safe. Then I was able to move into a lovely cosy sitting room with comfy chairs, I often fell asleep in. The view from the balcony. There are no words to do it justice. Absolutely brilliant and amazing. Grantley and Shirley looked after me extremely well. As well as Sally, from the moment I booked the apartment. Everything in a personal manner, which I appreciated very much. I very much hope, I can come back to Little Reef in the foreseeable future.
