Couple Sitting on the Beach & Looking Out to the Ocean, Barbados Pocket Guide

West Coast

Barbados' west coast is considered the 'Gold Coast' of the island and is home to many of the more upscale hotels and villas. Though this part of the island is generally more sedate than the more lively south coast, there is quite a bit of duty free shopping available along with many luxury shopping options, especially with the new shopping areas which have sprung up in this area.


The sea along this coastline is the Caribbean Sea which is infinitely calmer than the waters along the southern and northern shores of the island. These calm waters allows visitors to the island to sit on the long stretches of white sandy beaches and simply soak up the beauty that is Barbados.


Accommodation along this shoreline is usually more luxurious as this is typically the playground of the rich and famous where many guests choose to stay in luxury villas or condominiums and the many luxury hotels located in the area.


In addition to the great accommodation options available, Barbados' west coast also provides guests with many entertainment options. You could snorkel in the calm, crystal blue waters with the turtles or take in a game of golf during the day and then immerse yourself in the happening nightlife in the many opulent nightclubs, bars and restaurants in the area.
