Holetown Beach

Holetown beach is located on the west coast of Barbados, in the parish of St. James, behind the library.

It continues the eight miles of gold sandy beach that makes up the gold coast of Barbados.

Things to Do

The sea here is calm and there is an area marked by buoys for safe swimming. There is also some natural shade. You can park in the car park in front of the beach.

There is a beach bar called ‘Surfside’ selling food and drink with lunches ranging from $20 – 40BDS. This bar shows sports, but you can check with the barman in advance.

There are water sports operators on this beach offering jet skis, paddle boarding, sailing and kayaks. Prices are negotiable with the operator.

As you approach Holetown, you will see a development with Scotia Bank on your left, and diagonally opposite on your right is a Texaco petrol station.
