Cool Wind at Westland Heights is situated on the gorgeous West Coast in a privileged position. It is an easy drive of many of the island’s best beaches, shielded from the Atlantic Ocean's cool swells. Guests at Cool Wind are offered entry to the private beach at the exclusive Fairmont Royal Pavilion.
The beaches are spectacular with a colourful array of marine life and coastal birds. The Folkestone Marine Park in Holetown, just south of Cool Wind, spans several kilometres along the coast and was set up to preserve the coral and shallow areas inhabited by turtles.
The marine park is separated into various zones including two sport zones where motorised aquatic sports are permitted, a scientific zone and a recreational zone where you can snorkel in peace and discover the fascinating underwater world. Not only does Paynes Bay have a fabulous beach, often known as the Platinum Coast, it also has a fabulous fish market where you can buy fresh local fish or just watch as the fishermen bring their catches in. Every Friday you can buy freshly grilled fish from the vendors with delicious Bajan side dishes and Bajan rum to wash it down.
As well as visiting the impressive beaches, Barbados boasts a gorgeous, rolling interior, sprinkled with atmospheric plantation houses and wonderful lush botanical gardens. Barbados is also famous for sports including polo and golf. Prestigious clubs include the Apes Hill Golf Club where you can play through the rain forest as well as the open greens, The Royal Westmoreland Golf Club and The Country Club at Sandy Lane. Holders Hill is the main polo venue in Barbados where you can spend a very civilised afternoon watching the polo, enjoying a superb afternoon tea at the same time.
Shopping is excellent. The Limegrove Lifestyle Centre is one of the most stylish, upmarket places to shop and you can enjoy a delicious meal at the same time. It is home to the world’s leading retail brands including Armani, Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors, Gucci and Ralph Lauren. The open courtyard is oozes a wonderful ambience and boasts a stunning waterfall feature. The brightly painted shops at the Chattle Village have renovated Chattle homes and are absolutely charming. You can buy clothes, jewellery and souvenirs.
Holetown was the site of the first British landing in Barbados in 1625 and the first settlement by the British two years later. The Holetown Monument commemorates the landing. There is lots of good snorkelling in the mellow waters and reefs at Holetown Beach. Fine dining is also impressive in Holetown. First & Second Streets boasts some quirky bars that embrace the spirit(s) of the Caribbean. Barbados is a distinct and striking part of the Caribbean. It is a wonderful destination for all types of travellers as the island really does have it all!

At first glance you could be mistaken for thinking that Barbados is purely a beach holiday destination, but you're urged to reconsider this common belief. The island of Barbados is peppered with astonishing landscapes (both coastal and inland), enchanting locals, sublime cuisine, intriguing rums, fascinating wildlife, symbolic architecture and a selection of striking holiday villas.
Delve deep into the history of the island and start your holiday by visiting Sunbury Plantation House & Museum. This former plantation was built in 1660's and the premises are scattered with antiquities that delicately detail a recent history of Barbados. St. Nicholas Abbey also provides an insightful representation of Sugarcane production, Bajan artefacts and a wonderful observation point at Cherry Tree Hill. If you’re keen to visit one of the oldest Parliamentary buildings within the Commonwealth and appreciate the democratic legacy of Barbados, drop by The Parliament Buildings. This neo-gothic congress can be found in Bridgetown and act as a representation of Barbados’s Independence. There is so much history present throughout the island and as a result, Bridgetown and its Garrison has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site, which the locals are very proud of.
Great efforts have been made to persevere the natural beauty of Barbados, so if you’re drawn to the exploration of National Parks and multicoloured gardens, it won’t take you long to realise that Barbados is a haven for such paradises! Within the Andromeda Botanic Gardens, Farley Hill National Park, Flower Forest, Hunte's Gardens and Welchman Hall Gully - visitors, and Botanist alike, will be lost for hours admiring these astonishing botanical parklands. Keep an eye out for the Dwarf Poinciana, or Peacock Flower…it’s the national flower of Barbados.
Bajan’s take their food very seriously! If you and your fellow travellers are enticed by the gastronomic aspect of holidaying, we believe you’ve selected the right island. With every aspect of cookery mastered; from pickling to freshly prepared dishes, sweet & savoury, fragrant & spicy and of course, the bountiful choice of seafood. Check out the food stalls in Paynes Bay Church – where vendors exhibit locally made dishes & street food that will scintillate the taste buds. At the end of every working week, locals and tourists both flock to Oistins, for 'Fish Fry Day'. This is a must for those who haven’t undergone the experience! The evening starts with barbecues and then ascends into a joyful party. This caps off a busy few days of work for locals as well as the 'strains' associated with serious holidaying.
Barbados is of course iconic for its Beaches & Rum…so why not bring them together? You will have to go out of your way not to be able to find a beach bar along the west coast of the island, as well as the countless Rum Shops. Yes, you’ve read correctly, Rum Shops! These small and locally run businesses embrace the Bajan spice of life, in liquid form. Very delicious! If you’re searching for something a little more special, take a trip to the east coast and visit Sand Dunes Bar and Restaurant at Windy Hill, for an unforgettable experience.
Barbados is a distinct and striking part of the Caribbean. It’s a great fit for all types of travellers, as the island really does have it all. For a little more information about this delightful island, check out our guide to a remarkable stay!
