Places to Visit on Holiday to Mount Standfast, Barbados

Less than 3 kilometres to the south of Mount Standfast is the relatively busy town of Holetown. The town used to be named Jamestown but the activity of unloading and cleaning ships in a narrow channel on the outskirts of the town eventually led to the name being changed. One of the main attractions of Holetown is the Folkestone Marine Park and Museum. This centre has a wonderful artificial reef with its own sunken sea vessel which visitors can dive down to and explore. The museum also has aquariums that hold rare and fascinating examples of marine life.

On the outskirts of Holetown is the Portvale Sugar Factory which is a must-see attraction. The factory is modern and still working but it is home to the Sir Frank Hutson Sugar Museum. The old boiling houses are home to many sugar-production exhibits that were collected by an engineer, Frank Hutson. If you visit the factory during the crop season, which is January to May, you can actually see the sugar manufacturing process in full swing.

Absolutley fantastic, immaculate, perfect location

5 of 5
Absolutely fantastic Villa in the perfect location. I have stayed in this villa on 3 separate occasions. The housekeeper can't do enough for you, it was immaculate on our arrival with every facility you could wish for, it even had private access to a wonderful beach club. Cliff Richard and Anthony Hopkins live on the site and my loved sharing lunch in the same fantastic restaurant as them both and even had an hour training in the gym with Cliff. I have nothing negative to say about the villa, it's close enough to enjoy the beach and nightlife, yet secure enough to enjoy trouble free days by the pool and sleep peacefully during the evenings. I have stayed in other villas in Barbados but, this is by far the best one in the best location... It's perfect

Fabulous Villa great location stunning views

5 of 5
The Harpers Villa is in a charming, majestic and elegant situation on the islands West Coast. It's a beautifully appointed villa, has stunning views over the Caribbean Sea and amazing sunsets. If there is a slight disappointment it is only that it is not set more expansively in its own grounds, however the property is extremely spacious. Our stay there was absolutely delightful.
