Things to do from your villa in Barbados

-Beaches. There are 60 beaches on the island, every one of which can be accessed by the public. Crane Beach towards the southeast of the island is consistently ranked as one of the best beaches in the world. The west coast of Barbados is also spectacular, with lovely sandy beaches at Gibbes Beach and Paynes Bay.

-Diving. The high visibility and comfortable temperatures of the waters surrounding the island make Barbados an excellent destination for underwater activities. There’s abundant and colourful marine life and coral to admire, as well as wrecks to explore, with numerous dive shops and sites to be found in St Michael, St Peter, St James an Christchurch on the west coast.

-Boating. The west coast is also the point of departure for all kinds of boat trips. You can learn to sail at Carlisle Bay with the help of the Barbados Sailing Association. If you’d like to take a back seat then there are a number of businesses offering unforgettable catamaran cruises in St James and St Michael.

-Nature walks. The interior of Barbados is best discovered on foot, with a choice of walking routes available. On the Arbib Nature and Heritage Trail you can take a guided walk, getting special in-depth information about the area’s history and nature. Cherry Tree Hill is another excellent spot for a walk with fabulous vistas over the Scotland District.

-Bridgetown. You’ll be able to learn about Barbados’ interesting and tumultuous history at the Barbados Museum, which is set within Bridgetown’s UNESCO World Heritage Site, protecting the historic garrison. You can also take a tour at the Mount Gat Rum Distillery, to see how this typically Barbadian drink is brewed from sugarcane.

Weather in Barbados

Barbados holiday apartments are set on a tropical island, which results in year-round warm or hot weather, with very little fluctuation in average temperatures across the year. For every month of the year you can expect either eight or nine hours of sunshine a day. There’s a distinct difference between the weather from December to May, which is usually drier and a little cooler, and conditions from June to November, which tend to be wetter and hotter, with September, October and November being the dampest months of the year.

Travel to Barbados

Barbados has one airport – Sir Grantley Adams International Airport (BGI), which has connections to North America, South America, a number of other Caribbean islands and various airports in Europe. There’s a good road system on the island, and hire cars are perhaps the best way to get around during your holiday on Barbados - with highways converging on Bridgetown, the capital in the southwest. The public bus system is affordable and useful, and there are also ZRs, private mini-vans, which are similar to taxi-cabs.

The house worked really well for us. The team looking after the house keep it beautifully presented and clean - the pool and gardens are maintained during your stay as well. A welcome pack was arranged, transfers booked and the jeep was delivered and picked up from the house - making the holiday so easy just to have fun and relax on this gorgeous island. Thankyou to everyone that made our family holiday so perfect.

More than that though, the villa really does feel luxurious, its design is very open, which makes it feel very spacious even with a big group. The decor is of a high standard as well. The privacy the Villa provides was also appreciated. With a gate at the front and walls all around you, its easy to enjoy the place without a thought for the world outside. The staff were great as well. Not only would I recommend the place to friends, but we plan on returning at the nearest opportunity.
