A taste of class in Holetown

Holetown is luxury without the OTT pizzazz. Laden with chic boutiques, and also English heritage landmarks and charming seaside promenades, it's a place to splash the cash, enjoy the slow pace of Barbadian life and get into the rhythm of the island vibe. Snorkelling beaches line the coast around town, there are sizzling Caribbean fish fries in the BBQ grills along the main streets and countless cocktail bars, where the sunset shows are irresistible. Holetown holiday rentals also run the gamut from spacious family apartments to uber-swish villas with infinity pools and tennis courts and more.

Things to do

Holetown's aquatic enjoyments

Head along the Bajan coast just north of Holetown's salt-washed cocktail shacks and restaurants and you'll come to the Folkestone Marine Park and Museum. With an artificial reef, a sunken ship now teeming with life, plenty of local scuba outfitters and an interpretive centre, it promises a fun-filled day out for all ages. With kids? Hit the aquarium to wonder at multicoloured parrotfish and tropical swimmers. Feeling adventurous? Dive down to see the haunting wreck of the Stavronikita. Eager for romance? An oceanside walkway and picnic spots take care of that.

Activities

Embrace the heritage of Holetown

Holetown is the famous home of the Barbados Holetown Festival. A blowout of twirling Caribbean colours and flamboyant dancing, drum-whacking tattoos and street parades, it's like the islanders' answer to Mardi Gras or the fiestas of Brazil. You'll be swept up in a whirlwind of local crafts and candle-making, eating tangy Bajan seafood and knocking back plenty of those delicious Barbadian rum punches. And if you don't happen to be around for all the action in February? Don't worry – Holetown holiday rentals on the coast mean access to lively beach shacks and fish BBQs and more.

Weather

Keeping it dry in Holetown

There might be just a couple of degrees change in the temperature in Holetown between August and December, but the amount of rain that falls in this corner of the Caribbean can almost double during the steamier months of the year. That means a trip in the wintertime or early spring, between December and April, is prime. You can settle in Holetown holiday rentals then to make the most of the Bajan rays, snorkel in calm seas and really hone the tan.

Natural features

From crystal seas to caves in Holetown

Holetown sits midway up the west coast of Barbados. It's lined by a long run of yellow-white sand that's powdery and soft, and is famed for having some of the top swimming conditions on the island – think turquoise seas. There's a fringing of reefs and some artificial clusters of coral gardens waiting for those who delve beneath the surface. Heading in the other direction will open up wilder hills and mist-topped valleys. You can go there to see rugged rock formations at the Welchman Hall Gully, or to delve into deep tunnels spiked with stalagmites at Harrison's Cave.
