About the location
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.
