Trading sands for sizzling seafood in Oistins

If you're the sort of person that's happy to trade in the "best" beaches for the delights of grilled plantains, shellfish and red snapper cooked the Bajan way, lively blowouts with the locals and enchanting fishing towns, then Oistins holiday rentals could just be the perfect thing. Of course, on Barbados, the "best" beaches don't have a monopoly on white-flecked sands and aquamarine waters, which means you can still expect to be lazing in paradise just moments after rolling from your bed – the namesake Oistins Beach and lively Miami Beach are 2 of the best.

Things to do

Bridgetown and Oistins in one

One great thing about bedding down by the yellow bays and sizzling fish fries of Oistins is that you're never too far from the hustle and bustle of Bridgetown, the Barbadian capital. Just 25 minutes in the car and you're wandering UNESCO-tagged streets laden with colonial relics and English architecture. There are 2 museums that stand out. The Cricket Legends of Barbados is a place to hear leather on willow and explore the past of local sporting legends. The George Washington House is a preserved heritage home from the 1700s, where a president-to-be once trod.

Activities

The famous Fish Fry at Oistins

Ask the Barbadians what Oistins does best and they'll say straight away – "fish". Not only is it a working, breathing fishing town with all the great waters of the island's south coast to harvest, but it's also got a sprawling fish market, where you can snap up everything from prawns to lobsters at great rates. Then comes the legendary Oistins Fish Fry. Friday and Saturday nights see that culinary blowout of sizzling shrimp and shellfish go into overdrive. There's live reggae and chart tunes and just general good vibes all round. It's a Barbados must.

Weather

Tropical life in Oistins

December to March heralds the so-called high season in Barbados. It's a time filled with sunshine and daily means of around 25-30 degrees – you know, classic weather for hitting the white-sand bays or swigging cool rum punches in Caribbean surf shacks. Given the prime conditions for tanning and relaxation, it's hardly a surprise that most travellers also seek out their Oistins holiday rentals then. If you decide to come in summer, between June and October, be ready for some tropical storms and daytime rains.

Natural features

Life on the south coast in Oistins

Oistins marks the start of the Barbados south coast. More wild and windswept than its compadre around to the west, this is a land of rocky bays and grass-topped headlands that dip in and out of the Caribbean Sea. Near Oistins itself, things couldn't be more picture-postcard-perfect, like the beige-tinged Oistins Beach, or the long, yellow-white stretch at Miami Beach. Palm trees often cluster around the shoreline, offering much-needed shade, while there are rings of sponges and reefs running under the water nearby – just beware of currents.
