While staying at Casa Pimenta, you must visit Folkestone Marine Park, which sits only a 7-minute drive away. The park is renowned for its stunning sandy beach with crystal clear waters and some would say it is the best snorkelling spot in Barbados. Here, you can look out for tropical fish including parrot fish and lion fish.

Popular with both locals and tourists, the marine park contains an artificial reef created by the sinking of the Stavronikita ship, which now lies in 120 feet of water. This is a popular location to dive from, but be aware that due to the depth, diving is only recommended for experienced divers. If you want to take in your surroundings from a safe place, try a glass bottom boat tour where you can see the ship, reef and marine life without getting too close! Visitors will be able to enjoy water sports at this beach, including kayaking and riding a Hobie cat.

Folkestone Marine Park is also a wonderful place to relax in. Equipped with picnic tables, loungers to rent and a small bar, it’s easy to spend the day here not doing anything other than enjoying the weather. The park houses a small museum, full of photographs of the island’s striking marine life and an aquarium with even more underwater species.

Just a 4-minute drive or 16-minute walk away lies Holetown beach. Holetown is a great walking beach with seemingly endless golden sand to stroll along. The quiet location provides the perfect getaway for some sun soaking and lies just across from Holetown’s Massey grocery store.

About the Island & Getting There

About Barbados

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!

Reviews

  • Casa Pimenta most certainly a luxury retreat. Simply Splendid!

    on 27/11/2018

    Casa Pimenta was everything we wished for and couldn't quite believe that it lived up to the hype on the website description. It was certainly large enough to accommodate our family of seven. The staff (5 people at times!) were incredibly helpful and, again, unexpected. The food prepared by Thadeos and Lorna wonderful and in the end we didn't eat out much at all. Cheaper and way better to stay at the villa. Beach was only 10 minutes walk away and it was good to be able to use the Sandy Lane Property Owners facility (note: not the Sandy Lane Hotel facilities - although we did have a couple of cocktails there). The true test of a good holiday / destination is whether you would be happy to return and we would most certainly go back to Casa Pimenta in a heart beat!

  • Triumph

    on 24/02/2015

    Casa Pimenta turned out to be a triumph in all respects.

  • A magic ingredient

    on 21/02/2015

    May I once again express my gratitude for the role you played in our fabulous family holiday. The villa was excellent in all respects but the magic ingredient was the STAFF....I cannot praise them enough.
