Make a holiday rental, home or a beachfront villa in Holetown, Barbados your home away from home

Holetown was the first settlement in Barbados, the jewel of the Caribbean. Blessed with white sandy beaches and stunning scenery, Holetown Barbados has become a retreat on Barbados’ Platinum Coast. Holetown marks the landing spot of Captaon Henry Powell in 1625, and a monument still stands, although it marks the occasion as occurring in 1605!

Things to do on holiday in Holetown, Barbados

Holetown is on the most exclusive stretch of the Barbados coast, due to the magnificent beaches, crystal clear waters and luxury Barbados beachfront villas. The annual Holetown festival is a colourful festival of arts, crafts, historical parades, and music. Taking a Barbados villa in Holetown at this time of year is an exciting and fun time to rent.

Holetown is not a large settlement by any means. It does have shops, restaurants and bars, but it is not a vibrant town, but a relaxed easy-going village with magnificent natural surroundings. The Folkestone Marine Park is a great place to see some of the more unique animals living on the island, and snorkelling trails and glass bottomed boat expeditions can be arranged from the visitor centre.

Venturing off the sublime white powder beach, the waters of Holetown are magnificent for scuba diving. Visibility is very long, and there are some beautiful and bizarre fish and sea life swimming off the Barbados shores. Water skiing is also very popular here, and there are facilities and boats available from the beach. The great year-round weather also lends itself to other outdoor activities, such as taking tennis lessons or hiking in the countryside.

Short 5 minute walk to Beach Club which is another huge plus. Enjoyed the support system of Villa manager (who was waiting for us on arrival) and the housekeeper who we chatted to while she was here....Villa is truly spotless. If you are looking for a peaceful holiday in Barbados....this would be it! Thanks >>>Steve & Brenda. Toronto
