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
We are the people who discovered Silver Sands for the sport of windsurfing. We were the first windsurfers in Silver Sands and made Silver Sands known as one of the best wave windsurfing spots in the world.
Wolfgang Lange purchased this apartment in 1992
The Inchcape Seaside Villas are situated in a unique location, right on the water at the western end of Silver Sands Beach. Inchcape, as it presents itself today, developed from a plantation style property from 1920 and combines now the charm of the old with all modern amenities. Due to our location and proximity to the water we enjoy the best climate Barbados has to offer.
The houses have constantly been renovated and upgraded and Inchcape is recognized today as a unique and one of the most luxurious properties of such a kind in Barbados. Our beach is a beautiful and almost private beach, and has it all, from calm waters like on a pond to a small shore break at one end of the beach, which makes it the perfect beach paradise which suits a broad range of holiday makers. Silver Sands Beach can be for everybody, from the sport enthusiast to the one who just wants to relax and enjoy the beautiful turquoises waters of this pristine white sand beach.
Our beach, the almost perfect climate due to the gentle breezes of the trades and our proximity to the water, our strategically location, just a few minutes away from the Oistins fish market and shops and restaurants, and still being in pure nature just minutes away from everything one wants to be close to.
Inchcape Seaside is our "home away from home". It's so relaxing sitting on the veranda enjoying the view of the blue ocean! Wolfgang and Rosi's hospitality is beyond anyone can imagine! From Relaxing, dinning and Golfing, Inchcape seaside, Barbados is a dream vacation!
I had the pleasure of spending two weeks at Inchcape. I have known this location for many years . You are right in front of the ocean and away from the busy south coast, however everything you need (shops and restaurants) is well within reach . The apartment was a comfortable spacious one bedroom , clean, and decorated in stylish fashion.
The property is equipped with cable tv and wi-fi so staying connected was not a problem. The sound of wind and the ocean accompanied my sleep every night, while the mornings were soothed by the sound of the birds singing.
No matter whether you are a windsurfer, kitesurfer or just want to relax on the beach, swim or just lie in the sun on this lovely beach, this is the place to be
When staying at Inchcape I recommend visiting Surfer's bay (you can walk to it from Inchcape) a great beach bar with good vibes and food, with the occasional live etertainment on some nights. Also Chicken Rita (the world famous fried chicken) is an experience and is located very near the property. Fish Market in Oistins and miami beach are less than 5 mins by car. Definitely recommend staying here and hopefully will stay again soon.
Aufgrund den durchweg positiven Bewertungen haben wir uns für das Inchcape Seaside entschieden. Wir waren insgesamt für 11 Tage bei Wolfgang zu Gast und haben uns im Gartenappartement rundum wohl gefühlt. Im Vorfeld hatte sich Wolfgang um unseren Mietwagen gekümmert und hatte unsere Fragen immer super schnell per Email beantwortet. Am Tag unserer Ankunft wurden wir direkt am Flughafen von Rodney abgeholt, der uns noch an einen Supermarkt fuhr. Wir wurden im Appartement von Norma und Natalie herzlich empfangen. Auch unser Mietwagen wurde direkt vorbeigebracht. Alles top organisiert.
Die Unterkunft war sehr sauber und alles da was man braucht. Große und kleine Handtücher im Bad und in der Küche war auch alles ausreichend vorhanden.
Die Unterkunft selbst liegt etwas außerhalb, wobei in der näheren Umgebung ein kleiner Supermarkt und ein Restaurant ist, das Surfer´s Bay, das wir bei dieser Gelegenheit ebenfalls empfehlen können.
Oistins ist ca, 5min mit dem Auto weg. Hier gibt es größere Supermärkte, Tankstellen, Restaurants usw.
Der Strand direkt am Inchcape ist nicht zum schwimmen geeignet bzw. wir hätten uns dort nicht in die Wellen getraut.
Wir können jedem der seinen Urlaub in Barbados verbringt das Inchcape Seaside Villas wärmstens ans Herz legen. Außerhalb der großen Hotelanlagen, wo man in Ruhe entspannen und abschalten kann.
We are visiting Inchcape for many years. It became our second home and perfect place to stay on our holidays. The owners Wolfgang and Rosi fulfil an outstanding service for their guests. The property is always clean, well-kept and all equipment is well maintained. A close access to the beach and the variety of sport possibilities (land and water sports) is my recommendation for an active vacation.
Inchcape is a paradise !
real nice hotel close to the beach, perfect!
it was a wonderful vacation. The inchcape villas is right on the beach, the location just gorgeous. The apartments are all colonial and do not only look great, but are very tastefully decorated. The owners, Wolgang and Rosi, are perfect hosts and leave nothing to be desired.
It is also a brilliant place for kiters and windsurfers.
My husband and me will definitely be back
The villas and apartments are located on the very private ocean front estate of the “Inchcape Seaside Villas”, which is clustered on the southern most tip of Barbados. The houses are facing into the gentle breezes of the trades, which provide for the most perfect climate Barbados has to offer, never too warm or too cold. Inchcape also overlooks one of the island's most beautiful and unspoiled white sand beaches and is surrounded by brilliant clear, turquoise blue water. The beach is heaven for swimming and snorkeling, windsurfing and kitesurfing, surfing and boogie boarding. 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.
Other Activities: kitesurfing, boogie boarding, bodysurfing, and much more.
Golf: The Inchcape management gladly arranges tee times and lessons. The Barbados Golf Club, Sandy Lane and Royal Westmoreland have excellent pro shops. The combination of golf, sun and the Caribbean Sea, a comfortable place To stay at Inchcape and enjoying the privilege of being able to play a round of Golf at Royal Westmoreland, aren't those reasons enough to try Barbados for a golf vacation?
Barbados has excellent 18-hole championship golf courses. Sandy Lane with two Tom Fazio designed courses will rank amongst the finest golf resorts in the world. The elegance and beauty of the course of Royal Westmoreland golf course, one of the best of Robert Trent Jones jr.'s designs, is outstanding and if there is one course to play in Barbados, it's definitely the one of Royal Westmoreland. The Barbados Golf and Country Club at Durants near Oistins and Silver Sands along with the 18-hole signature course at Apes Hill round up the picture of Barbados as a world class quality golf destination and makes the island a serious contender for being the No.1 Golf destination in the Caribbean.
