There is so much to see and do in Barbados and Holetown has it all. From relaxing on the white sandy Caribbean beaches, to swimming and snorkeling with the turtles, to sipping a run cocktail watching the sunset. And St James Villa is the perfect choice!
Apart from the green monkey, other animals found in Barbados include the mongoose, eight species of bat, the rarely seen European hare, red-footed tortoise, various species of lizards, whistling frogs and toads.
Barbados is also a haven for many turtles, including the Leatherback and Hawksbill turtles. In certain areas turtles have become accustomed to humans and are relatively tame and you can swim with them as they feed amongst the coral. The Barbados Sea Turtle Project monitors nesting and hatching activity during the turtle season.
The crystal clear Caribbean sea is ideal for water sports from snorkelling and scuba diving to water skiing and sailing. Pick up a trip from Holetown beach, right beside the villa.
There is an abundance of fine restaurants in Barbados that offer local Caribbean cuisine, seafood, continental and fusions.
With a wide range of dining options there is something to suit every taste and budget. By day informal attire is acceptable in most Barbados restaurants, and at night there is a more formal dress code.
Barbados is a beautiful island with wonderful golden sandy beaches and a relaxing and peaceful atmosphere.
St James Villa is located right on the beach front in Holetown, on the west coast of Barbados.
