Mistle Cove is situated on the south coast of Barbados in the heart of St. Lawrence Gap, the 'in' location for dining and night life. You can walk to any of the many restaurants an find a wide variety of cuisine in casual atmospheres, some with spectacular over-the-water seating. As you walk you can hear live music from many of the cafes and pubs in the Gap.
Enjoy the sound of the surf. Swim in the private pool or the sea. Soak up the sun on the private sandy beach or the white sandy beach just beyond the rocks that stretches for miles.
Activities:: Visit the great beaches of Barbados for swimming, kite and wind surfing, diving and snorkeling - and Bathsheba on the East Coast, for world-class surfing. Try some serious deep-sea fishing or a more laid back excursion combining fishing, swimming and picnicking. Horse racing and polo are very popular. Play any of our excellent golf courses such as Barbados Golf & Country Club which is nearby (discounts available). For the more energetic, join an island safari tour, go swimming with the turtles or spend an afternoon golfing or shopping. Come discover our island paradise, surrounded by a coast of sandy beaches and bays.
Area:: Barbados is the most eastern island in the Caribbean, and is a tiny dot on most world maps with an area of 21 X 14 miles and 60 miles of coastline. Barbados has a population of about 254,000 and a literacy rate over 97%.
Independent since 1966, with historical ties to England, thus the language and driving on the left. The local people and the dialect of English used are known as Bajan. The economy has been dependent on sugarcane with diversification recently into manufacturing and tourism.
American, British Air, BIWI, Air Jamaica, US Air, Delta and Virgin fly to Grantley Adams International Airport.
Excellent location for restaurants, night life and (small) beach. Can be a bit too lively if you want a sedate holiday.Beautifully maintained and well-equipped accommodation, with very helpful and friendly staff (which is true of all Bajans!). Thoroughly recommended.
As regards food, the Bean and Bagel further down the Gap is good for all-day breakfast - flying fish and plantain a must. Oistins on a Friday or Saturday night for cheap fresh fish cooked for you - try to get a table on the beach. Restaurants abound to suit all tastes but prices now similar to UK. Sunday buffet lunch should be sampled at Sunbury Plantation and / or Brown Sugar. I have heard that the Atlantis Hotel at Bethsheba is also good. The Roots and Rythms show at the Plantation is a really good night out. The locals are so friendly we just keep going back every year.
Mistle Cove is on the South Coast of Barbados in the heart of exciting St. Lawrence Gap (the 'Gap'). It is 15 minutes from the International Airport and 20 minutes from the capital of Bridgetown. Taxi, bus and rental cars are readily available.
