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.

Every review I have written has been better and better each time as it improves year after year. ( if that is possible). We have recently retired and had the fantastic opportunity to stay for five weeks in the low season, we wandered what the weather would be like ( although I would stay there what ever the weather wind rain or snow ) it was amazing we arrived just after a down pour and it remained cloudy until the next morning. For the next five weeks we had one night heavy rain ( which is very common in the high season) and only two cloudy days. We had a few days of high humidity but at Inscape there is always a lovely place to find a nice breeze. Although it never gets too busy in the high season it was lovely to experience it even quieter. Everything was at an even slower pace if that is possible all the restaurants were still all open with people having even more time and space for their customers. A very good time to go if you just want to explore Barbados and what it has to offer which is a lot. Inchcape it self never disappoints it has so much to offer all age groups so much to do if you wish and so little if like us you are a bit lazy. Kite and wind surfing facilities are right on your door step. The villas themselves are charming immaculate and all different adding to the establishments charm, it is like driving into a little oasis. The owner's and staff are amazing,happy charming and are always there all you have to do is ask and they will do anything for you they really do want you to have a good time. It is advisable to have a car to get out and about but we met a couple who were there for three weeks and they just used info from the internet to get around on public transport and probably saw more of the island than we did they really enjoyed doing it that way. There is alway's the almost resident taxi driver Rodney who will take you any where you want on the island he is lovely. We have stayed at Seaside,Sunset upstairs ( which is something else!) and our daughter at Seaside cottage all of which have a different charm. Once again I would like to thank all the staff I miss them already. Rosi and Wolfang really know what they are doing brilliant ! If you love sea sunsets and lovely people you must go !

Fabulous neighbourhood which was peaceful and safe. The neighbours were also friendly. On arrival to the property there was an instant wow factor. The house was large, bright with lots of outdoor space. The agent was there to meet us and checked us in promptly and smoothly. She was also available to answer any questions later on. The entire booking process was easy and the customer service from the owner to the agent was a 5 star process. I've been to Barbados many times before and this is by far this best property I have ever rented. It was completely spotless and my family felt at home instantly. The patio at the back provided a beautiful breeze all day long. All 3 bedrooms contained AC which was very useful on those hot nights. There was ample closet and storage space, a fully equipped kitchen and excellent laundry facilities. The driveway and garage were large. There is a well maintained and secure garden where my kids spent many days playing and entertaining each other. If you dont rent a vehicle for your stay, the bus stop is only a few minutes walk away where the ZR taxis run every few minutes. My entire family were heartbroken onthe day of departure and we will definitely be returning again. We spent 6 fantastic weeks at this property and I will recommend this property to all my family and friends. Andrea. S

Stefano & Elizabeth, the owners, made us feel like family. They arranged transportation and gave us tips on where to go. The room we stayed in was a cute apartment (the yellow flower room, I think) was perfect for us and just as it was described. It was clean and everything was supplied. The view of the water from the room was just spectacular. There is a small bar within walking distance that was convenient. The propert was close to public transportation and a convenient store. We are ready to come back and stay longer next time!! We loved everything we did!! Everything was awesome. Thank you Stefani & Elizabeth!!
