Luxury St. James Holidays

Playground of the rich and famous

St. James

Move aside Marbella and St. Barths – St. James is quickly becoming the hotspot of choice for the rich and famous. Located on the west coast of the island, St. James is home to some of the best beaches in Barbados, all with the azure Caribbean Sea as a backdrop. St. James is more than just pretty beaches, though – it’s famed for its high-end dining experiences too, with top-notch beachfront restaurants and cuisine to die for. For something a little greener, St. James is home to several golf courses. Your evenings can be spent strolling along the seafront boardwalk and sipping expertly mixed cocktails at one of the chic bars.

Lewis Parker

You can't visit Barbados without getting into the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. I'd recommend a catamaran trip up the west coast, where you can spot sea turtles and sip rum punch.
