Silver Sands – By Wolfgang Lange

Silver Sands stands for pristine white sand beaches, crystal clear water, surf, swimming, sunbathing and beach life at it’s best. Among other nice features, Silver Sands is also blessed with the best climate on the island of Barbados. Being located on the southern-most tip, the easterly trades not only provide for some of the best windsurfing and kite surfing conditions anywhere in the world, they are also responsible for a very mild and almost perfect climate, never too cold and almost never too hot.

The sand on Silver Sands Beach is as white as white can possibly be and over the whole length of the beach, there are conditions to everybody’s liking. While one part of the beach is more ideal for swimming and playing in the turquoise, crystal clear water, the other part of the beach provides excellent conditions for those who like to play in the waves, and that’s where bodysurfers, boogie borders and surfers have their spot on Silver Sands Beach.

For many years Silver Sands had been an almost forgotten, small fishing village at the end of the world. But that was soon to change after we came to Barbados in the late seventies and discovered the area for windsurfing. And it was windsurfing during the 1980s which made Silver Sands known as one of the best wave windsurfing spots on earth.

Articles on Silver Sands in magazines, TV coverage worldwide during windsurfing world cups and it’s unique conditions for windsurfing also drew the attention of the vacationer. And today Silver Sands has established itself as a jewel among the “where to stay” spots in Barbados.

A variety of accommodations can be found in the immediate area, located right on Silver Sands Beach.

Silver Sands Hotel caters to tourist needs with it’s bar, restaurant and also a small supermarket. Silver Point serves tourists and locals with it’s bar and their restaurant. Several other local eateries and bars are in walking distance. The fried chicken and French fries at Chicken Reta’s are a must to experience. Brian Talma’s “action shop” serves the famous barbequeued fish cutters for lunch. And the beach bar “Surfer’s Bay” serves a daily buffet style dinner.

Club Mistral on Silver Sands Beach and Brian Talma’s action shop on Silver Rock beach cater to the windsurfing, kitesurfing and surfing clientele with lessons and rentals.

Silver Sands is only a 12 minutes drive by taxi from the Barbados airport, but it is nestled in bare nature where the gentle breezes of the trades and the sounds of the ocean are the only noises to be heard.

Strategically Silver Sands is perfectly located: far enough from anything disturbing and still close enough to everything one wants to be close to.

A major attraction close by is the Oistins fish market, about 4 minutes away by car, where fresh fish is sold daily to the delight of both, locals and tourists alike and fried and barbequeued fish can be obtained from one of the many food stands at any time, Friday night being the busy night of the week known as the famous “Oistins Fish Fry on Friday night”.

But Oistins is not only a cute and laid back fishing village, it also has a big supermarket and variety of stores which contribute to the comfort for those staying in the Silver Sands area.

                                                      It was great! Stefano arranged for Mr. Rodney to meet us at the airport. He was so friendly and even took us to a minimart to get some basic groceries before we even got to the apartment! Now that is service! The apartment was clean and well-maintained. There was an outside shower to clean the sand off after time at the beach. There were clothes lines and laundry facilities available, too. Stefano had information pamphlets available as well as his verbal knowledge - which was most helpful. We took the #11 minibus into Bridgetown several times - was way easier then driving and then having to park at car! Even though it was hot, there is good ventilation in the place and we were comfortable, day and night. We did a lot of walking up and down the coastline. Some of it is beaches and other parts are rocky areas with pathways between the beaches. We went to Surfer's Bay Bar, which was very close to the apartment, every day for Happy Hour - if not dinner, too. We could watch the sunset and enjoy a nice drink. We would recommend this apartment - for sure!

                                                      Highly recommended! We will probably be back :)

                                                      After extensive research I got in touch with Stefano, the Italian owner. I booked the "Tropical Gecko Studio" for 2 weeks directly through Stefano and wired the money to his Barbados Account. Felt a bit risky at but worked out perfectly! Everything was as promised when we arrived and I got a much better price, which saved me about 200 US$. The appartment is well maintained, clean, has all the utilities you need (incl. fast WiFi and a well equiped kitchen for a bit of cooking), offers a spacious patio with hammock and roof and an additional outside shower for a quick splash during hot days. We had quite a few questions during our stay and Stefano was always helpfull, be it personally, via E-Mail or WhatsApp. He helped us find a good surf school, get a rental car on short notice - which was even delivered to our door step, and generellay helped with a great amount of tips for the island. Thank you again Stefano - we had a great time! The appartment is in a quiet area with the beach and a beach bar/restaurant 2 min away. The next mini mart (small convenience store), which is also the closest bus stop, is a short 5 min walk away. We regularly used the mini buses to go to Bridgetown (just 2 BBD / 1 US$ per ride). The ride to the closest supermarket, Miami Beach and Oistins in Bridgetown take about 20min. The mini bus is a low-cost and convenient alternative to a rental, if you want to explore the South Coast. All in all we really enjoyed our stay a lot and we will probably come back to visit again!
