The Saint Peter Parish region
Barbados is regarded as “the jewel” of the Caribbean and the West Coast is affectionately known as the “platinum coast” because of its clean, glittering beaches and spectacular sunsets. Unlike the Atlantic coast the waters are calm, clear and warm. The west coast is the most sort after area of the island where property is of premium value compared to other parts.
It is ideal for swimming, snorkelling, wind surfing, water skiing, scuba diving or just relaxing on the beach enjoying the sun, sand and sights. There is only an average 2 degrees Celsius variation from the warmest to the coldest months, so whenever you go you should be basking in average temperatures of around 30 degrees Celsuis.
One of the most popular islands in the Caribbean, Barbados has miles of fine white sand with towering palms and turquoise waters.
The local beach is what you may expect, quiet with "white" sand, simply beautiful. If you prefer a more "commcialised" beach, then Mullins beach is approx.10 minutes walk from the Ashanti which has a restaurant, bar and beach hut that stock those incidential beach items (sun cream, air beds etc.) Should you wish to hire a jet ski, boat trip or other water based activity these are also available at Mullins beach. Away fom the beach are hills with stunning plantation houses and tropical vegetation, not to mention the fields of sugar cane used extensively for locally produced rum. There are ample opportunities to play tennis, explore the island on foot and even play golf on one of several courses of international standing.
For those who prefer to spectate, Barbados has a racecourse and is home to the Kensington Oval – a must for cricket fans. The parish of St.Peter is also home to the Wildlife Reserve and is one of the best places to see the Barbados Green Monkey in its natural environment.

"For us this has EVERYTHING!! Totally brilliant!!"
On our 5th visit to Barbados - a glorious island which never disappoints and where there's always plenty to do - we discovered Ashanti Apt. 5 and we got a fabulous self-catering experience at very reasonable cost in a well appointed, spacious and comfortable 1 bedroom apartment in the pretty north-west Barbados parish of St Peter. Ashanti isn't by the beach, it's situated about a quarter mile inland conveniently between Speightstown and Holetown, but it's particularly handy for (in my view) Barbados's best beach experiences at Gibbes and Read's Bays. This north-west quadrant of the island is fairly quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of the south coast although there's plenty of action in bustling Holetown a 10 minute drive away. Ashanti Apartments lie within private grounds, gated to provide security and with a small on-site private car park. Collis (who was brilliant looking after us) meets you when you arrive and your eye is caught by the nice, quiet, clean safe pool which we regularly used to cool off. Our apartment was brilliant - clean, nicely decorated in creams and light browns and well-equipped - a nice roomy sitting room with couches, tables and TV, free wifi, a bathroom with shower, 2 toilets, an excellent bedroom (king-size bed) with a balcony and a holiday kitchen to die for. I could have slept in the huge top loader washing machine in the utility room it was so big, and there is also large tumble drier provided. The only downside is that there's no beach view. Also it's a bit hilly with a fair few steps if you're elderly or disabled. The Ashanti and Barbados experience are probably best enjoyed if you hire a car. We usually have fun crashing around in one of Fat Jack's (Dover Beach) old mokes - "if you can find one cheaper then I'll get married" is his motto but the local buses (thru the capital Bridgetown and out to Oistins) are frequent and cheap; all journeys, any distance are about 50p. By car it's 2mins to Gibbes, 5mins to Mullins, Read's or Speightstown, 10mins to Holetown and 20mins to Bridgetown. It's particularly handy for visiting the north (Animal Flower Cave), the picturesque east (Bathsheba, Andromeda) and the Flower Gardens. If you're on a budget, there are decent supermarkets for provisions in Speightstown and Holetown. We rented through the Owners Direct website and dealt with a agent locally here in the U.K. who has always incredibly been helpful and informative. We love Apt.5 so much we've already booked to go back .. twice!!
