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.

Lovely apartment in SilverSands, Christ Church

5 of 5
I stayed at Seawinds Apt # 11 for 2 weeks and it was absolutely lovely! The apartment was clean, comfortable and safe. I loved the fact that there was a cell phone available to make local calls. I would definitely recommend Seawinds apartment for your next stay in Barbados.

Two very chilled weeks at Little Green Tara

5 of 5
Booked Little Green Tara (LGT) as it is very close to the sea, but more importantly Surfer's Bay bar/restaurant! I must admit our expectations were not that high, as the cost of LGT was on a par with a studio apartment that we had rented a few years ago. Melissa responded promptly to my inquiry and maintained excellent communication throughout. She arranged conveyance from the airport to LGT via the 'lovely' Lisa (who incidentally organised an excellent car hire deal through her brother). LGT is a quirky, authentic Bajan cottage and we soon fell in love with it. As I write this review I'm envisaging myself sat on the patio listening to the waves lapping against the shoreline. Anyway back to the review - LGT is adequately furnished/equipped and with lots of covered outdoor space ideal for me as I prefer shade to sun. My wife is the opposite and spent long periods relaxing in the hammock in the sun. The upstairs bedroom area is a light airy room with air conditioning (very quiet operation) and a ceiling fan. There is also a TV. The bed is extremely comfortable and of a good size (Queen) and there are adequate pillows (6). There is a chest of drawers, wardrobe space and under-bed storage. The bathroom is separated by a louvred door and has sink, toilet and a large shower enclosure. The hot water is provided via solar power, so you soon learn when to shower and when not to shower! Downstairs is primarily kitchen space. However there is a small work-station, and a folding table & chairs. Outside is a wrap-around semi-covered patio area, which is essentially your living space. As already mentioned it has a hammock, Ottoman relaxer chair and a small portable drum BBQ. Melissa contacted us upon our arrival at LGT to check that everything was alright and to inform us that she was only ever a phone call away. She even took the time to drive down to Silversands to introduce herself in person. The close proximity to Surfer's Bay was never an issue regarding noise as it closes at 21.00. In summary a thoroughly enjoyable 2 weeks spent in a lovely property in a beautiful location. Would we return? Can't wait! Thanks Melissa and see you soon!
