St James holidays 2021

St James is one of the eleven parishes (or districts) of Barbados, the gorgeous Caribbean holiday island. It’s home to the famous ‘Platinum Coast’, which is as celebrated for its stunning Robinson Crusoe-style beaches as it is for the number of beachfront mansions owned by the rich and famous. Beautiful St James is not just for the wealthy, though: many of its fantastic hotels offer great value all-inclusive options. Its main town, Holetown, was the first settlement on the island, and is now full of shops, restaurants, cafés and bars. There are lots of pretty villages to explore, including seafront Fitts Village. You’ll also find the fantastic Folkestone Marine Park and Museum, with calm, tranquil waters that are ideal for snorkelling and paddle boarding.

Top attractions

St James is one of the most beautiful regions of Barbados, with stunning beaches like Holetown Beach and Sandy Lane, and the chic town of Holetown. Holetown is a delight to explore on foot, with a gorgeous boardwalk shaded by palm trees, a handsome 19th-century church, and lots of designer shops and enticing bars and cafés. You could also browse through the craftshops and gift stores of Chattel Village, which is set in lovely botanical gardens. The calm waters of the Folkestone Marine Park are perfect for snorkelling, and are home to myriad, multi-coloured fish, and experienced divers might want to explore the Stavronikita. If you’re in the mood for some city life, take a day trip to historic Bridgetown, the vibrant island capital.

Beaches

Beaches

Some of the most beautiful beaches are found in St James, endless swathes of white sand shaded by palm trees, sloping into crystal-clear, turquoise waters. The main beach in Holetown is well equipped with sunbeds and thatched parasols, and you can rent kayaks or jet-skis, go snorkelling or water-skiing. Follow the boardwalk north to reach the Folkestone Marine Park, with sheltered, calm waters and more great snorkelling and diving. Sandy Lane Beach, backed by huge mahogany trees, is one of the most exclusive beaches on the island, overlooked by enormous mansions. Other fantastic beaches here include Paynes Bay, which is one of the largest and best-equipped, and smaller, more secluded Aleynes Bay and Weston Beach. Colony Club Beach (also known as Heron Beach) is another exclusive beach, which is also a nesting site for sea turtles.
