Windsurfing: The spot to windsurf in Barbados is the area of Silver Sands, where the conditions are challenging yet forgiving and where circumstances are unbelievably convenient - and Inchcape is located right on the edge of Silver Sands beach.
You only rig up once and store your equipment just a few steps from the water. Shower, shade, relaxation area, everything combined right at your house, right on the spot, which is so unique. We have made it possible for you to enjoy this luxury windsurfing experience at our gorgeous vacation home, Inchcape in Silver Sands, on the Caribbean island of Barbados.
Sounds to good to be true?!? May be it does, but this dream will come true for you when you decide to come and stay with the people who discovered Silver Sands as a world class wave windsurfing spot. In 1978 Rosi and Wolfgang, your hosts at Inchcape, were the first people to ever sail at Silver Sands' reef formations.
Kitesurfng: Jim Drake, one of the inventors of windsurfing in the '70s, had already experimented with a wing, shaped like a hangglider, in the early stages of windsurfing... Time has gone by and the wing has become a kite which finally turned out to be an appropriate alternative for accelerating a surfboard using windpower.
Since kitesurfing really started taking off about two years ago, the still relatively small kitesurfing community learned quickly that special circumstances are needed to make kitesurfing a safe and enjoyable experience.
Barbados isn't only blessed with it's unique windsurfing conditions, it also proved to have some of the most ideal kitesurfing beaches possible. There are first of all the beaches around Inchcape, like Silver Sands and Silver Rock, which attract most of the kitesurfers. Brian Talma's Action Shop at Silver Rock is available for kitesufing lessons.
Surfing: When the world was created, Barbados was given an abundance of potential for becoming a surfer's paradise. The island's location far out in the Atlantic Ocean allows waves to travel thousands of kilometers on the bottom of the sea to finally unload all the power they developed during the long journey over Barbados' coral reefs.
As Barbados is a coral island, a coral reef stretches all around Barbados' coastline, providing for unlimited surfing conditions all over. No matter whether a swell approaches the island from a northerly or westerly direction or whether it's moving in from the East or the South, Barbados is guaranteed to have surf somewhere along it's shores at almost any given day of the year.
Also Inchcape is blessed with a surf break right in front of the property:
The shorebreak at Inchcape on the western end of Silver Sands beach is a pitchy shorebreak and can fit all sorts of descriptions, from mushy to super clean, it can be quite powerful or moderate and changes daily
We are the people who discovered Silver Sands for the sport of windsurfing. We were the first windsurfers in Silver Sands and made Silver Sands known as one of the best wave windsurfing spots in the world.
The Inchcape Seaside Villas are situated in a unique location, right on the water at the western end of Silver Sands Beach. Inchcape, as it presents itself today, developed from a plantation style property from 1920 and combines now the charm of the old with all modern amenities.

We love Inchcape. We've stayed here three times and will come back and back. The villas are each delightful. They are clean, comfortable, well equipped and make the most of a wonderful site. the staff could not be more charming and welcoming. The locations is quite lovely and perfect if you don't want to be right in the busy and more touristy bits of the west and south coasts, which are, in any case. easily and quickly accessible by car or bus. Wolfgang and Rosi are great hosts and we look forward to our Barbados trips with enormous anticipation, knowing that we have a perfect home from home at Inchcape.
Our 4th stay at Inchcape Villas but our first time in Sunset. What a spacious, stunning first floor apartment. Beautiful airy, large rooms with a huge balcony with lovely cushioned furniture and a hammock. The view is just the sea and you can watch the sun rise and set from the house and balcony. So relaxing, the sound of the waves and sea breeze in the palms of the garden is a tonic for the soul. So clean and such wonderful staff and hosts make this the perfect place to unwind away from it all.
Inchcape Seaside Villas made our vacation the best vacation my family and I have been on for many many years. The location is literally on the ocean. Super spacious, immaculate villas along with the sounds of the crashing waves and the absolute best views of the ocean right in front of your very own eyes. Our villa was just few meters away from the beautiful silver sand beach. I highly recommend Inchcape Villas for anyone traveling to Barbados, this is the one and only place to stay at. Everything about this place is truly amazing, the views are breath taking, the villas a spacious, the staff are super friendly and of course the hosts Rosi and Wolfgang are so down to earth and have immense local knowledge. If your'e a kitesurfer then this is the place to be too! We will be back and simply cannot wait. Stay here and don't waste your time looking elsewhere. Perfection in paradise.
First trip to Barbados, not knowing where to stay. After a little online search, I luckily found this villa. Everything I expected and more! Accommodations were as advertised. Maids were very friendly and helpful. Grounds were continuously (quietly) being maintained at all times while we were there. The view of course was spectacular. Rosi & Wolfgang check up on us several times during our stay - making it all more welcoming. Definitely consider this for your Barbados Stay!
On a side note, we(4 of us) showed up a day early for our stay. Since our villa was not available until the following day, Wolfgang & Rosi made accommodations for us on the property until our actual reservation began. The staff made the transfer seamless. Again, thanks to all! Additionally, Heed Wolfgang's advice - have them arrange pick-up from the airport. Navigating Barbados can be a little tricky! I rented a car from the airport and took the "scenic" (very long) drive to the villa.
Enjoy your stay!
Sitting on the edge of silver sands beach, this property is a gem. It is very private and quiet...about a 5 minute drive to oistins, the closest town. We do rent a vehicle but there are mini van buses with a few minute walk that will take you pretty much anywhere. Each accomodation on this property is unique with its own special flare. Our family has stayed in many other units and all were great. The property is beautifully manicured and always impeccable. Wolfgang and Rosi are superb hosts and know the ins and outs of the island better than most. They make excellent recommendations for restaurants and tours. They can also do a car rental for you. The company delivers the vehicle and picks it up at the end. It's awesome! This was our fifth time there this year and of course, we booked again for next year. This property is close to the kite surfing area but by no means do you need to be a kiter. There are so many things you can choose to do on this island. We love to explore new beaches and always seem to discover new places each time we explore. We love barbados but cannot imagine staying anywhere else but Inchcape. You will not regret staying here.
It was a great place. Very roomy and right on the ocean. The people there were also very friendly and helpful. The property was clean and well maintained. I would recommend it to others.

Golf: To stay at Inchcape and enjoying the privilege of being able to play a round of Golf at Royal Westmoreland, aren't those reasons enough to try Barbados for a golf vacation?
Barbados has excellent 18-hole championship golf courses. Sandy Lane with two Tom Fazio designed courses will rank amongst the finest golf resorts in the world. The elegance and beauty of the course of Royal Westmoreland golf course, one of the best of Robert Trent Jones jr.'s designs, is outstanding and if there is one course to play in Barbados, it's definitely the one of Royal Westmoreland. The Barbados Golf and Country Club at Durants near Oistins and Silver Sands along with the 18-hole signature course at Apes Hill round up the picture of Barbados as a world class quality golf destination and makes the island a serious contender for being the No.1 Golf destination in the Caribbean.
