Places to Visit on Holiday to Glitter Bay, Barbados

Approximately 11 kilometres from Glitter Bay is the island capital of Bridgetown. There is so much to see and do here, it is likely that you will need more than one day to get around it all! One must-see for your itinerary is Queen’s Park on the outskirts of the city. This area used to hold the extravagant residence of the Commander of British troops on the island. The Georgian house has been lovingly restored and is now a combined art gallery and theatre. If you have children in your group, there is a wonderful play area which contains the 1,000 year old giant Baobab tree. There are several stories relating to how this tree came to end up on Barbados!

                                                  Westholme, Sugar Hill - a splendid place to stay!

                                                  5 of 5
                                                  The location of Westholme could not be better; the views over the ocean, the elevated position enabling the gentle breeze to work wonders, the close proximity of the swimming pools on Sugar Hill etc all provide the perfect environment for a lovely holiday. The villa is delightful and beautifully appointed. The upper terrace is a magical place to watch the sunset. The standard of accommodation and quality of housekeeping are definitely 5-star. I would not hesitate to wholeheartedly recommend Westholme as it far superior to other similar-priced properties we have visited on the island.

                                                  We were a family of 4 adults who totally enjoyed the island and our stay at Glitter Bay. We stayed in the Twin Palms villa, it was very spacious and very clean. The beds were super comfortable. The outdoor deck was perfect for morning coffee and evening meals. Christina was very responsive to any of our questions and offered to book our catamaran sail. We would definitely recommend staying here.
