What about Port St. Charles?
Located in the north-west of the island, Port St. Charles marina is a luxury development consisting of exclusive villas, condominiums and apartments.
It contains a small restricted-access lagoon area for residents (or persons staying at the marina) to berth their yachts close to their vacation homes.
Because the marina hosts Coastguard, Police, Immigration, and Customs facilities, it has become one of the two official seaports of entry into Barbados and an essential fixture for any yachting enthusiast.
Note: The main seaport of entry is the Port of Bridgetown, managed by the Barbados Port Authority (www.barbadosport.com). They are also primarily responsible for the berthing of vessels such as yachts in the Bridgetown Port.
