Getting About

Holiday in barbados

There is a copy of “Ins & Outs of Barbados” in the Apartment. Please try and take some time out of your holiday to read this as it contains a great deal of useful information about the island and its customs, and will give you lots of good ideas for trips, visits and days out during your stay. In addition, the visitors section in the Barbados telephone directory can be very helpful. You will find that there is a frequent bus service for those who choose not to hire a rental car. The bus stops are at the bottom of the road by the beach. If you choose to hire a rental car our parking area is well lit at night. As Casablanca is privately owned here is a list of the owner’s recommendations of favourite days out or things you might like to do.

We recommend the following:-

Land and Sea Safari on Saturdays only (429 5337) or a trip aboard the Harbour Master (430 0900) a dinner and dancing cruise on Thursdays with floor show which departs in Bridgetown.

Crane Beach - an ideal day out, best to take a picnic after lunch take the steps up from the beach and take a perfect photo of the sand and ocean. There are linked beaches for you to walk along and explore.

Mullins Bay - the holiday destination in Barbados

Sandy Beach Christchurch - spend the day here. The water within the reef is shallow and it is fun to wade. It is the perfect place to learn to wind surf and there are sun loungers and parasols available to hire. There is an inexpensive beach bar on the beach for lunch and snacks.

Foul Bay - a quiet beach for walking.

Mullins Bay - Just 4 minutes from the apartment. Enjoy a beach stroll in the late afternoon when the sun worshippers have gone. Swim then sit on the warm sand and open a chilled bottle of wine and watch a perfect romantic Caribbean sunset. For early risers the beach is perfect for an early morning stroll and swim.

BathSheba - is a very dramatic part of the island and well worth the drive.

The Malibu Beach Club and Visitorís Centre offers a great day at the beach with the added attraction of enjoying the beautiful Malibu Rum that is actually made on site. It doesnít get any fresher than that, but you can also enjoy a superb lunch, some great shopping in the gift shop, and of course all the facilities of the beach club on one of the islandís finest beaches.

Try a chilled Malibu cocktail before or after you take the distillery tour and youíll be in the right mood to relax and enjoy this unique experience. For more information tel 246 425 9393 or email malibubeach@sunbeach.net

Many people travel past the Graeme Hall Sanctuary every day and have no idea what a wealth of natural beauty lies hidden within yards of the busy South Coast Road near the entrance to St Lawrence Gap. The central feature of the sanctuary is the large lake in the middle of the swamp that has become the home for hundreds of birds, some long-term residents, and others the seasonal migrants. A great variety of birds are on view, and the boardwatks allow visitors to get quite close to watch or to take photographs. The swampís dense mangrove is a beautiful sight, and the whole sanctuary is a scene of great natural beauty with its rich tropical vegetation, idyllic lake, and vibrant bird life above water, and busy marine life under it. The sanctuary is open every day and for more information tel 246 435 9727 or visit the website www.graemehall.com

For many years the Atlantis Submarine tour has been one of the top attractions on the island and little wonder with its state-of-the-art 65 ft long vessel that seats 48 people and takes you where no other tour can take you to the bottom of the sea! There are day and night tours with plenty of exotic fish and marine life to see. Private charters can also be arranged. Atlantis has added another exciting adventure to its tours with their Rhino Rider Water Safari two-seater ten toot inflatable boats. The Rhino Riders are perfectly safe and travel in convoys to some beautiful beaches, shallow shipwrecks and over idyllic reefs. For more information tel. 246 436 8929
