Or call ahead and reserve time with your selected water spots facility.

If you prefer to explore the island and are interested in history, drive into The Garrison area which has recently become a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This area is unique because it has survived intact, the buildings are now used for other purposes, becoming homes and business premises. Go to St Anns Fort and see the fine collection of 16th 17th Century cannons. An old custom has been revived every Wednesday at 11.50 at the Clock Tower the Changing of the sentry takes place, its free and charming with a small band playing and the personell dressed in their traditional Zoave unfforms it is a step back in time.The Barbados Museum is nearby, housed in the old hospital and prison, well worth a visit to see so many historical aspects of Barbados displayed together. George Washington House is on The Garrison, Barbados is the only country he visited outside the USA. It is a charming house beautifully and sensitively restored, the visit opens with an infomative film.

Do visit the magnificent East Coast, breath the fresh air straight from Africa, walk the beaches, take care if swimming as it is dangerous but there are rock pools to explore and paddle in to cool off. Drive along the East Coast Road now called ( I think Emmy Bourne Hiway)
The Sugar Hill resort is wonderfully placed to enjoy the best that Barbados has to offer. Saint James has a fabulous run of restaurants and quiet secluded west coast beaches. The villa is well appointed with a fine well equipped kitchen. The large terrace provides ample opportunity for al fresco dining and the pool is just a hundred feet or so away. All the bedrooms have direct access to the outside by either private balcony or the terrace. Sugar Hill itself has many nice features. The view from the clubhouse is spectacular and that view is available from the pool, bar and restaurant. A brisk walk around the grounds is a great way to get the day started. Barbados has all you would expect in a caribbean island. Great beaches, diving, golf and sail cruises but there is a unique feel to Barbados that I believe stems from its history and topography.
We have visted many islands and Barbados has the most diverse types of terrain of any place we have been. The east coast looks like the Big Sur while the south reminds me of the Bahamas. We took a zip line adventure throught he trees and had lunch at the east coast Atlantis hotel with the surf crashing right below our window. We toured a historic sugar plantation and stopped by the Mount Gay store for some supplies. We had dinner and drinks at a number of very refined posh establishments in Saint James and also had a great meal in a local Friday night fish fry. The night sky is very clear and I had my first unforgettable look at the Southern Cross. All in all a great vacation and we look forward to returning to Barbados and Sugar Hill many times in the future.
Sugar HIll is situated on a ridge overlooking the Caribbean Sea. We now have a beach facility for our guests at Fairmont Royal Pavilion, lovely beach, chairs, bar with lunch available ony 6 minutes drive from the villa..
