St Peter

Prepare for holiday perfection! The parish of St Peter combines the best of Barbados in one neat little package. To the west, an uncrowded stretch of white sand, calm turquoise sea and dreamy resorts pulls in travellers from across the globe. Head east and the beaches are wild, windswept and authentically Caribbean.

Get away from the coast and you’ll find an interior thick with forest, mountains and nature reserves, where you can hike and bike to your heart’s content - as well as get up close and personal with the country’s wildlife. 

Love delving into the past? This part of Barbados is home to historic towns, mansions and gardens, where you can brush up on your history while taking in stunning natural and manmade surroundings.

Soak up those Bajan beach vibes on St Peter’s glorious coastline, where white sand and turquoise sea is the norm, and the pace is as laid-back or energetic as you want it to be. 

A mixed and lively crowd packs out the sun loungers at Mullins Beach. It’s one of the best loved beaches on the west coast, with a wide range of water sports on offer and an excellent seafood restaurant that’s the epitome of barefoot chic. 

You won’t find big hotels or beach bars on nearby Gibbes beach. Just quiet, seclusion and all the white sand and bright blue seas that your Robinson Crusoe fantasies are made of. Want things even quieter? Leave your rental home and head east, where the waves are bigger and so is the sense of calm and space.

Holiday villas in St Peter are all about access to the outdoors. Bajans are big on water sports and you can do anything from windsurfing to water skiing to paddle boarding. For maximum wow factor, get under the waves. Sign up for an introductory dive course or just pull on a mask and snorkel and explore the vibrant marine world below. 

If you haven’t yet got your sea legs, there’s plenty to do on land! A brilliant way to explore is to pull on your hiking boots and head for the hills, where you’ll find waterfalls, forest and blooming botanical gardens. 

History buffs should explore St Nicholas Abbey, a rum distillery and former sugar plantation whose museum offers insight into the island’s dark dealings with slavery. Make sure to pop round the corner to Cherry Tree Hill for one of the most dramatic views in Barbados.

Lively Speightstown is the best shopping option close to your villa rental. Browse souvenirs and beach wear along the esplanade. Or join the locals at the roadside markets and shops, where you can pick up everything from succulent fruit to homewares. 

The Limegrove Lifestyle Centre in Holetown will fulfil all your high-end fashion fantasies. Whether you’re looking for diamonds or designer sunglasses you’ll find them here! Too rich for your blood? Make your way to Bridgetown for the best duty free bargains around!

Get a handle on local cuisine with a plateful of flying fish! It’s best breadcrumbed, fried and served alongside cornmeal, plantains and a deliciously spicy sauce. Try it at a beach shack or hole-in-the-wall eatery in Speightstown for maximum Bajan vibes. 

Caribbean flavours with a fine-dining twist are easily found at fancy restaurants all along the west coast. Dress up and prepare yourself for spectacular food in refined surroundings. The Tides in nearby Holetown is legendary.

Rather self-cater at your holiday home? You can buy the basics at one of several supermarkets in Speightstown, but for fresh fruit, vegetables and seafood straight from the ocean, hit the daily market.

Check into a family-friendly villa in St Peter and your holiday can be as relaxed or action-packed as you choose. You’ll likely have your own pool so the kids can splash around without going down to the beach. While gardens and al fresco eating areas make outdoor living a joy. 

West coast beaches have calm, clear waters that little ones can play in safely, as well as soft sand that’s perfect for building sandcastles. Stick to the main beaches and you’ll find kid-friendly restaurants and all kinds of water sports to try.

If you want a break from the sand, head for the hills to feed the monkeys at the Barbados Wildlife Reserve or ride a miniature steam train through the grounds of St Nicholas Abbey.
