The local beach: our family has been lucky enough to be holidaying in Barbados for a good number of years. So we knew that one of the critical factors for us when we decided to purchase a property on island was the quality of the beach and the safety of the water. We know from experience that there are many beautiful properties on island but the beaches and sea around them can be difficult for young or inexperienced or unsteady swimmers and we wanted to ensure that our whole family, every generation, could enjoy their time together all day. Dover Beach is beautiful but also gently shelving and with much calmer water than even the immediately adjacent beach which we have struggled to swim from. It is the choice of local families at weekends for good reason!
The island: At just 21 miles long and 14 miles wide, Barbados rivals destinations several times its size. Surrounded by over 70 miles of white sand beaches distinguished as some of the finest in the Caribbean, the island has long attracted visitors to its shores. With a beautiful landscape dotted by pristine golf courses, polo fields and elegant estates, world-class restaurants, vibrant night life and an exciting social calendar of cultural, music and sporting events, Barbados is truly an island paradise.
The climate: Just outside the main hurricane belt, the island enjoys year-round sunshine, cooling north-east trade winds and just enough rainfall to maintain its lush tropical gardens, gullies and rolling green fields of sugar cane, reminiscent of its history as an agricultural colony in the British Empire.
The people: Perhaps the island’s greatest asset is the warmth of its people. Barbadians are proud of their home and welcome visitors with open arms, making them feel as if they have lived next door all their life. We welcome you to experience the island’s unique culture and get a feel of what it truly means to be ‘Bajan’.

Sapphire Beach is located in Dover, Christ Church; an area known for its beautiful white sand beaches and vibrant lifestyle. From our condo you can enjoy a cocktail by the pool, take a dip in the warm Caribbean Sea or enjoy the sunset from your private balcony. Unlike adjacent beaches, the sea here is considered safe for swimming and is frequented by local families. We are just a 7 minute walk into St Lawrence Gap, home to bars and restaurants where you can enjoy a taste of ‘Bajan’ culture. Listen to a live band, dance under the stars or enjoy a delightful cocktail at a range of lounges and clubs frequented by visitors and locals alike. Local buses take you the short distance into the capital Bridgetown, where you will find a wide range of shopping, or continue further up the West Coast to sample some of Barbados' most exclusive hotels. All beaches on the island are public. A 30 minute drive will get you to the stunning East Coast, battered by Atlantic waves and a surfer's paradise.
