Silver Sands apartment description

All units at the Inchcape Seaside Villas stand for extravaganza in architecture and Caribbean lifestyle at its best. “House Seaside”, House Sunset, The Seaside Cottages, the Garden Apartment and the Coconut Studio are more than just a place to stay. Our accommodations let you experience the exotic mix, flavor and coziness of an old Caribbean plantation style property, serving today as beautifully located ocean front holiday homes, on the western end of the white sand beach of Silver Sands with it’s crystal clear and turquoise blue waters of the Caribbean Sea. “The Seaside-Cottages”, can be considered a fine example of beautifully designed and finished West Indian homes. The houses are framed by a natural garden of tropical plants and trees and its wooden decks and terraces on the ground and second floor level, just a few meters from the water’s edge, are responsible for breathtaking and unobstructed views of the Caribbean Sea. The Inchcape units truly are a wonderful experience.


Windsurfing: The spot to windsurf in Barbados is the area of Silver Sands, where the conditions are challenging yet forgiving and where circumstances are unbelievably convenient - and Inchcape is located right on the edge of Silver Sands beach.
You only rig up once and store your equipment just a few steps from the water. Shower, shade, relaxation area, everything combined right at your house, right on the spot, which is so unique. We have made it possible for you to enjoy this luxury windsurfing experience at our gorgeous vacation home, Inchcape in Silver Sands, on the Caribbean island of Barbados.
Sounds to good to be true?!? May be it does, but this dream will come true for you when you decide to come and stay with the people who discovered Silver Sands as a world class wave windsurfing spot. In 1978 Rosi and Wolfgang, your hosts at Inchcape, were the first people to ever sail at Silver Sands' reef formations.

Kitesurfing: Jim Drake, one of the inventors of windsurfing in the '70s, had already experimented with a wing, shaped like a hangglider, in the early stages of windsurfing... Time has gone by and the wing has become a kite which finally turned out to be an appropriate alternative for accelerating a surfboard using windpower.
Since kitesurfing really started taking off about two years ago, the still relatively small kitesurfing community learned quickly that special circumstances are needed to make kitesurfing a safe and enjoyable experience.
Barbados isn't only blessed with it's unique windsurfing conditions, it also proved to have some of the most ideal kitesurfing beaches possible. There are first of all the beaches around Inchcape, like Silver Sands and Silver Rock, which attract most of the kitesurfers. Brian Talma's Action Shop at Silver Rock is available for kitesufing lessons.

Surfing: When the world was created, Barbados was given an abundance of potential for becoming a surfer's paradise. The island's location far out in the Atlantic Ocean allows waves to travel thousands of kilometers on the bottom of the sea to finally unload all the power they developed during the long journey over Barbados' coral reefs.
As Barbados is a coral island, a coral reef stretches all around Barbados' coastline, providing for unlimited surfing conditions all over. No matter whether a swell approaches the island from a northerly or westerly direction or whether it's moving in from the East or the South, Barbados is guaranteed to have surf somewhere along it's shores at almost any given day of the year.
Also Inchcape is blessed with a surf break right in front of the property:
The shorebreak at Inchcape on the western end of Silver Sands beach is a pitchy shorebreak and can fit all sorts of descriptions, from mushy to super clean, it can be quite powerful or moderate and changes daily

One side of Silver Sands Beach can have a little shore beak while the other side is much calmer and ideal for swimming and sea bathing. Life in this part of the island is casual and unhurried in the true Barbadian tradition. The small fishing village of Oistins is just a few minutes away and there are plenty of restaurants and supermarkets from in walking distance to just minutes away by car.
