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!

                                                                Perfect holiday after too long away from Barbados

                                                                5 of 5
                                                                It was a nervous return to Barbados for us, after 19 years ! We booked the holiday to celebrate my husbands birthday, and after spending a lot of time on the island with a lot of happy memories, before we had our children , we returned with our 3 teenage boys not sure what to expect. We needn't have worried as we were made to feel welcome as soon as we arrived. The driver was there to meet us as promised at the airport and on arrival at the apartment Eleanor was waiting outside to greet us. The apartment is beautiful, clean and spacious. Now home in the cold we are already missing the outdoor balcony, with its views over the pool and gardens, where we had our breakfasts and evening drinks. Waking up to the sounds of the birds, and watching the family of monkeys playing from the balcony [ with their 3 babies ! ], then listening to the crickets at night was amazing.Eleanor looked after us really well and the apartment was always immaculate, and we even organised for groceries to be delivered there for our arrival through the owners. They have everything really well organised.The resort of Glitter bay was perfect, with one of the best beaches on the island, a lovely pool, and tennis courts which the boys also used. Sunbeds are allocated on arrival and are yours to keep for your stay, so you don't need to rush down to the beach in the mornings ! There are plenty of beach bars within walking distance along the beach, we enjoyed lunch at the Glitter bay Beach bar and at the Fairmont Royal Pavillion next door. These both stay open until the evening for drinks too..perfect for sunset and watching the flying fish. Be warned the Fairmont beach bar also shows football !! Which is kind of a double edged sword. Annoying if you have men that really can't bear to miss the premier league even when you are away for the week somewhere amazing , but also great if you are travelling with teenage boys as it enables you to enjoy 90 minutes peace and quiet in the sun .We were pleased that the West Coast hasn't been overdeveloped still, and has improved for the better, with a wider selection of bars and restaurants and the Limegrove shopping centre all nearby. There is a good selection of bars and restaurants , of all price ranges from rum shops and beach bars to the amazing restaurants. Lonestar is a short walk along the beach and is fantastic with great atmosphere. The resort is in a great central location. Would definitely recommend it and we will return soon. Thank you !

We had such friendly welcome and the host even stocked the fridge with Banks' Beers for us! The villa was located at a perfect spot, moments from Holetown and the Rum Shacks! We walked down the beach everyday (2 mins) and had lunch at the famous JuJu's as well as having meals at the Lone Star which was literally a stones throw away! The Andrews family had a wonderful time and we will certainly be back for the most perfect location and villa in St. James!
