Make a holiday rental home or self catering apartment in St Philip, Barbados your home away from home

St Philip (Saint Philip), is the south-eastern parish of Barbados in the Caribbean. Locally considered to be ‘the countryside’ of Barbados, due to its flat, cultivated plains, St Philip is the largest parish on the island, offering visitors a chance to get away from the tourist hoards.

Things to do on holiday in St Philip, Barbados

One of the most remarkable places to visit on a holiday in St Philip, Barbados, is the Sunbury Plantation, which has been fully restored to its original state, dating from 1660. Complete with Victorian antiques and horse drawn carriages, visiting the Sunbury Plantation gives you a haunting sense of what life was like in Barbados. The picturesque Ragged Point Lighthouse is well worth visiting from a self catering St Philip apartment or villa too. Sam Lord’s Castle is a dramatic sight, and visiting gives you a real since of the violent implications of the pirates which patrolled these waters.

The coastline is a delightful place to walk. Spectacular coastal views, stunning scenery and an array of exotic animals make walking the coastal paths an absolute delight, and it makes a great way to prepare for an evening of sampling the incredibly delicious local cuisine and ice cold rum punch which Barbados is famous for.

Of course, no stay in St Philip holiday rental would be complete without spending a large proportion of your time bathing on the glorious, powder soft beaches which appear on many travel guides to Barbados. St Philip has some beautiful, calm beaches to enjoy, the pick of which must be The Crane beach, which is quite hard to reach, but extremely worthwhile. Long Beach is also remarkably beautiful and slightly easier to find!

St Philip is not a great destination for young families hoping to bathe and swim. The strong waves which pound this tip of St Philip attract experienced surfers from all over the world to take a rental apartment in St Philip, as the surfing is certainly the best in Barbados, and not for the feint hearted.

Places to holiday in St Philip, Barbados

A St Philip apartment in Ocean City is one of the most romantic places to stay in Barbados. Set high on a cliff above the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea, there is almost nowhere where you can stay in such a stunning setting without hundreds of other people around you.

Bottom Bay is a beautiful beach in the south of St Philip with a wide, expansive beach where the waves roll powerfully onto the shore. The houses which line the top of the rocky shelf at the back of the beach are some of the best places to see turtles and whales in the waters below.

Travel to St Philip, Barbados

The Grantley Adams International Airport is the only one on the island, but nowhere is more than an hour and a half from the airport. British Airways provide cheap flights to Barbados from the UK, and you can be settling into your self catering St Philip apartment within 9 hours of leaving home! Although it seems a million miles away, a holiday in St Philip, Barbados is really quite easy to take!

Shared pool with owner but this was not a problem. Had good private outside area. Was quite distant from resorts so would probably recommend a car. Buses were frequent and cheap but so packed. Felt sorry for locals having to use them on a regular basis! The Boatyard in Bridgetown was lovely. Loved St Lawrence and Holetown. Food was great, flying fish a firm favourite as was the rice and peas. some really good local walks but take plenty of water with you. Overall a good holiday.

Spent 10 days in Aug/Sept, and has everything you might need to ensure you have a comfortable stay. The pool is the icing on a rather delicious cake - perfect for cooling down on a hot day! Thanks to Jan for helping make our holiday a particularly enjoyable one.
