Feel the breeze in you hair in the wild southeast corner of Barbados

Wild beaches and atmospheric old buildings fight for top billing in this beguiling corner of southeast Barbados. It's set right near the airport, so you won't have to go far to get to Saint Philip vacation rentals, yet they're away from the mega resorts and the glitzy beachside strip of western Barbados. It has plenty of gorgeous beaches of its own, of course, but the waters are untamed and wind-pummelled rather than clear and calm, so you'll have to make sure you don't fall prey to the strong current while swimming here.

The sun and the sand and a drink in your hand

Unsurprisingly, most activity in Barbados revolves around the beach and the water, and Saint Philip vacation rentals are perfectly placed for your seaside vacation. The top beaches in the area include Crane Beach, characterized by pink-tinged sands and foamy surf, and Bottom Bay, which is backed by palm trees and coral cliffs. Beaches along this stretch of coast are prone to strong currents, though, so you should take care when swimming. If tranquility is your jam, both Three Houses Park and King George V Memorial Park offer quiet, shady picnic spots.

Get your Caribbean history fix—and throw some rum into the mix

While it's the laid-back beachy lifestyle that draws visitors to this part of the world, there's more to the island than its sublime sands. Saint Philip is home to some sweet heritage sites that will excite your inner historian. These include 17th-century Sunbury Plantation House, whose elegant rooms are decked out with antique furniture, the beautifully dishevelled Ragged Point Lighthouse, which dates from 1851, and Sam Lord's Castle, a classic Georgian mansion built in 1820 by a notorious buccaneer. For a taste of booze Barbados-style, head to the Foursquare Rum Distillery to learn about the stages of rum-making and sample a few of their wares.

From sunny skies to hurricanes, it's all here in Barbados

Weather-wise, the best months to book Saint Philip vacation rentals are January through April, as this is the driest and least humid period. However, it's also the busiest time and prices will reflect this. Barbados's official hurricane season runs from June to November, with most major storms occurring from August to October; but Barbados's easterly position means that it's not usually directly hit. Bearing in mind both weather and price, May is a great time to visit. Accommodation rates are much lower than the January-to-April high season, and the weather is almost as good.

Let the trade winds rush through your sails

Saint Philip is the largest of Barbados's 11 parishes. It sits in southeast Barbados, has relatively flat terrain, and is quite close to sea level. It neighbors the parish of Christ Church, which is home to Grantley Adams International Airport, making it a convenient area to stay if you've got an early flight! There's no big town here, but there are a number of small villages and communities. The coast is lined with cliffs and sandy beaches and is subject to trade wind breezes, meaning the seas are often rough and the currents strong.
