Local Places to Visit

200 meters up the hill inland from the apartments  you will find Polo Ridge where part of the former Holders plantation was located and acres of sugar cane was grown.

A further 200 meters along the road inland is the building which was the former St John the Baptist School where a number of famous Barbadian and West Indian Cricketers went to school. The playing fields are nearby on which a number of them developed their cricketing talents. Marshalls Bar, a small, popular local bar and restaurant is near the playing field and is a popular haunt of a range of cricketing enthusiasts. Here you can sample some traditional Bajan food.

Holetown is a mile away from the apartments to the north along the coast road and is of historical interest because it is where the first British settlers landed in Barbados and where the famous monument can be seen as a reminder of its former British colonial past.

Holetown also has numerous shops, banks and a wide variety of restaurants.

There is an annual festival in Holetown, which is held in February.
