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!

Weather in Glitter Bay, Barbados

The whole of the island of Barbados is lucky enough to experience a moderate tropical climate, which means that a Glitter Bay holiday will guarantee an inordinate amount of heat and sunshine!

There is a rainy season which falls between June and November. Visitors do not need to worry too much as the annual rainfall is approximately 40 inches and any rain is quickly drained away. Barbados is outside of  the main hurricane belt and so it is very unlikely that visitors will witness tropical storms or hurricanes.

Delightful Villa in a superb location!!

5 of 5
A delightful Villa. Tastefully furnished with everything high class. The owners, Amanda and Steve Sims were excellent in helping us whenever needed. Likewise, Barbara Gill (manager) and the lovely housekeeper Wilmur very efficient and so friendly. The property was always immaculately kept and the surrounding gardens and pool a delight. Having access to The Fairmont Royal Pavilion was fabulous.- Beautiful sun-loungers/umbrellas etc at hand, plus wonderful waiter/ess service to supply the all important Rum Punches and Caribbean Cocktails!! The location of 7 Porters Court was also superb. Hiring a car is not necessary because buses stop just out side the back gate, where you can travel to Holetown, Speightstown or anywhere on the Island for as little as BD$2. So shopping is easy, and the new Massy's at Holetown is easy to get to and very good. To list all the delights surrounding #7 would take for ever. However must mention--All the local beaches-Alleynes,Gibbs,Mullins etc all so beautiful and close at hand!! Restaurants--The lone Star, Tides, Surf Side (Steel Band Sunday evenings), Zaccios and of course the ever famous The Cliff. They all serve excellent food and the ambience super. My daughter and I have just spent the most marvellous 2 weeks at 7 Porters Court, and we can only say to Amanda and Steve that it was a pleasure to have stayed in their delightful Villa. We are certainly looking forward to returning to Beautiful Barbados, and without doubt we will certainly be recommending to our friends and family. Best Wishes to Amanda and Steve. Eddie and Alison.

Delightful stay

5 of 5
Our family of 3 had a wonderfully relaxing time staying here at Glitter Bay. Dealing with Cristina when arranging our stay went smoothly. The apartment was immaculate and what you see in the pictures is exactly what you get. It was spacious, light and airy. The location for Glitter Bay is perfect, no hassle to just stroll down to the pool and gorgeous beach area where sunbeds are readily available. The snack bar was unfortunately shut for most of our stay, opening only on the last day, however it was open for drinks. This was not a huge issue as we just walked along the beach to the Fairmont next door or lonestar for breakfast as well as staying in for breakfast on a couple of days. There are plenty of restaurants to go to in the area for a slap up meal or just something quick and easy. Bus stop right outside or taxis are easy to order. There are tennis courts in the grounds but I would suggest taking your own balls as the ones provided were not very bouncy. A great holiday and we would consider staying in this apartment again.
