The St Peter Parish region
Port St Charles is a modern development, considered by many to be the jewel in Barbados' crown.
It is the only customs port in Barbados and welcomes many international celebrities and business
icons on their luxury yachts. It has its own beach accessed directly from the development and served
by a water taxi from the front door of the villas. The beach itself is spectacular with its calm warm
waters and fine white sand.
Nearby historic Speightstown has a comprehensive but uncommercial shopping centre with rum shacks, markets, restaurants, art gallery and supermarkets. Local tourist attractions include the butterfly and orchid farms, Harrisons Caves, and many old colonial homes and sugar plantations. There are three world class golf courses within easy reach. Horse racing takes place in Bridgetown. Cricket takes place on any piece of available grass and Bridgetown has its own Cricket World Cup ground (The Kensington Oval !).
Bathsheba and the wild rugged West Atlantic Coast is about 20 minutes away. See the local sights on the way there (Plantation Houses, sugar cane fields, sea caves, the Hills of Scotland, Chalky Mount Potteries, limestone caves and much more.
