Destination guide

History awaits in Saint Michael

Barbados is famed globally for its white-sand beaches, azure skies and balmy weather, but the historic parish of Saint Michael also offers a kaleidoscope of culture for travelers. Find your perfect Saint Michael vacation rentals in the bustling city of Bridgetown, full of sun-kissed history, Caribbean rhythm and grand architecture. Take a kayak through "the waters of paradise", admiring the tropical fishes in the clear blue, as sunlight dazzles on the rippled waves and you taste the salty tang of the surf. Then tour Barbados' famous rum distilleries or head underwater at Carlisle Bay to see ageing shipwrecks.

Things to do

Unlock the fire of Saint Michael

Bridgetown's Mount Gay Rum Distillery offers 3 centuries of history, craft and sailing heritage. Discover the secrets of its uniquely pure blended taste in a distillery tour of rich amber colors, sweet, sweet molasses and illuminating history. For travelers of drinking age, enjoy the free tasters of Mount Gay's rums, then finish off with Bajan cuisine and the sunset on the veranda. The historic Jewish Synagogue is a must-see sight for anyone with an interest in the past, while the Pelican Craft Village will please shoppers with its authentic arts and crafts.


Tour Saint Michael by kayak

The lapping shores surrounding Saint Michael vacation rentals are perfect for kayaking: the west for calmer adventures, or the south for thrills. Take family or friends out in a group and tour the picturesque island, paddling through crystal-clear saltwater, as the warm tropical breezes play with your hair and the Barbadian sun heats your skin. Gliding across the waves, you'll see the fabulous corals alive with marine species and feel the swell of the tide through your limbs. Or, hire a local guide to show you awesome sights, like diving to the ocean floor to feed the sea turtles.


Saint Michael's all year shine

The exquisite Caribbean climate is renowned for a reason: it's hot all year round, with temperatures hovering around the 70s and 80s. Yet, the locals will tell you the best time to book Saint Michael vacation rentals is from December until April, when that heavenly Barbadian summer is in full swing. Outside of summer, you'll want to check before you book for ‘hurricane season', although Bridgetown is generally sheltered from the worst storms.

Natural features

Swim with the turtles in Saint Michael

Away from the beaches, you'll find inland jungles begging to be explored by intrepid adventurers. Keep your eyes peeled for the island's array of exotic wildlife: green monkeys, mongooses, 8 species of bat, the rarely seen European hare and over a 100 different dazzling bird species, including doves, herons and hummingbirds. And of course, the island is a haven for turtles like the Leatherback and Hawksbill variety. In fact, in some places they're so tame that you can swim with these ancient creatures as they peacefully feed on the sparkling coral.
