St Peter is the most northerly parish on the prestigious West Coast, with glorious beaches on the deep blue Caribbean, set in a perfect tropical climate. Green monkeys, humming birds and various seabirds are frequently seen, and you may also be lucky enough to spot turtles swimming in the warm waters, or even coming ashore to build their nests. Indeed, one of our guests recently witnessed, on the beach directly in front of the apartment, the hatching of over a hundred baby turtles!
Less than a 5 minute walk from the apartment you'll find the centre of historic Speightstown, which is the second largest town on Barbados, retaining many authentic and charming buildings and features from its colonial past. Largely untouched by tourist redevelopment, it's a bustling market town with street stalls, local shops, and a friendly atmosphere. The town, however, does have all the amenities you'd expect, including banks, a post office,doctors, pharmacies and two supermarkets, as well as restaurants, coffee bars etc
Within a five minute walk there is also a bus station, with frequent services to the whole island, at a set fare of only BD$ 2 per journey (approx. 70p).
There are numerous beautiful and spectacular sandy beaches within easy walking distance, at Port St. Charles, Almond Beach and Schooner Bay - and remember, there are NO private beaches on the island. For Scuba diving visit the "Reefers and Wreckers" dive shop, where you can book lessons or hire equipment. Watersports and boat trips are readily available along the West Coast but especially at nearby Mullins Beach.
For keen golfers, it's only a 10 minute drive to the famous Royal Westmoreland and Sandy Lane Golf Club.
Holetown is a short car or bus ride away. Here you will find the duty free designer shopping and entertainment centre at Lime Grove, SuperCentre Supermarket and a number of good restaurents and bars.
