About the location
The ritziest part of Barbados, the parish of St James is a perfect holiday spot, where you will find many of the top hotels and finest restaurants, alongside polo grounds and golf courses. It is a clean, sophisticated slice of Barbados, dubbed the 'Platinum Coast' and 'Millionaire's Row'. 

The west coast beaches face the Caribbean Sea and are delightfully sheltered, with all sorts of watersports, and there's a good choice of bars and restaurants. Holetown is nearby and offers a selection of shops, many selling Mount Gay® Rum, Bajan art, pottery and batiks, while the capital, Bridgetown, is easily reached by local bus. Further along the coast from St James is stunning North Point, where the sea crashes thunderously onto the rocks.
Transfer time
35 minutes from Barbados airport.
