The Local Area

So much to do, an amazing beach and many fantastic restaurants and bars

The Paynes Bay beach is generally considered the best beach on the "platinum" west coast of Barbados.  The walk along the beach is very good - particularly first thing in the morning.  Turning right, you can walk up past the Sandy Lane hotel.  Turning left you can walk past the House hotel and Daphne's now called Positano restaurant.

The Restaurants in Barbados are superb, on the west coast we are blessed with many close by to Shutters Quatro Passi, Sandy Lane Bajan Blu ,Tides , Fishpot, Sea Shed , Champers & La Cabane .  Just consult, the brochures in the condo for many others - don't miss the show at Ragamuffins on a Sunday afternoon Other great restaurants are LoneStar, Nishi, Fusion  - if you need any help booking please let me know in advance of your stay especially in peak season this is to be recommended.

Holetown is about a mile away  - with many restaurants, bars and shops.  Lime Grove is a new shopping complex with shops from leading designers -.  Prices are not completely over the top as it is duty-free.  Good for buying watches & Jewllery. if you like wine go to Wine World opposite Lime Grove great selection and good value for the island also check out a new bar in Limegrove called Bearded Rose which is run by Sea shed 

Quite a nice jog can be had to Holetown through the Sandy Lane old golf course.  Golf is excellent although pricey.  Apes Hill is superb.  You should contact them via their websites to play or use the Concierge service from Young Estates to book.  The Sandy Lane Old Course is close to the apartment and although challenging is quite good for beginners - it tends to be quiet during the day.

Barbados is great for kids and teens - we have been bringing ours for the last 20 years.  Lots of things to do as well as just relaxing on our beautiful beach.   Paddle boarding seems to be the latest craze.  There are various waters ports available on the beach - Jet skis, small saliboats, water ski boats & glass-bottomed boats for reef viewing etc.

We  always hire a car while we are here we have 1 car parking space under the condo  - Stoutes car rental are good and you can collect at the airport  However, the reggae buses are very frequent and stop outside the apartment and taxis are easy and relatively cheap if you decide not to rent.
