Windsurfing: The spot to windsurf in Barbados is the area of Silver Sands, where the conditions are challenging yet forgiving and where circumstances are unbelievably convenient - and Inchcape is located right on the edge of Silver Sands beach.
You only rig up once and store your equipment just a few steps from the water. Shower, shade, relaxation area, everything combined right at your house, right on the spot, which is so unique. We have made it possible for you to enjoy this luxury windsurfing experience at our gorgeous vacation home, Inchcape in Silver Sands, on the Caribbean island of Barbados.
Sounds to good to be true?!? May be it does, but this dream will come true for you when you decide to come and stay with the people who discovered Silver Sands as a world class wave windsurfing spot. In 1978 Rosi and Wolfgang, your hosts at Inchcape, were the first people to ever sail at Silver Sands' reef formations.
Kitesurfing: Jim Drake, one of the inventors of windsurfing in the '70s, had already experimented with a wing, shaped like a hangglider, in the early stages of windsurfing... Time has gone by and the wing has become a kite which finally turned out to be an appropriate alternative for accelerating a surfboard using windpower.
Since kitesurfing really started taking off about two years ago, the still relatively small kitesurfing community learned quickly that special circumstances are needed to make kitesurfing a safe and enjoyable experience.
Barbados isn't only blessed with it's unique windsurfing conditions, it also proved to have some of the most ideal kitesurfing beaches possible. There are first of all the beaches around Inchcape, like Silver Sands and Silver Rock, which attract most of the kitesurfers. Brian Talma's Action Shop at Silver Rock is available for kitesufing lessons.
Surfing: When the world was created, Barbados was given an abundance of potential for becoming a surfer's paradise. The island's location far out in the Atlantic Ocean allows waves to travel thousands of kilometers on the bottom of the sea to finally unload all the power they developed during the long journey over Barbados' coral reefs.
As Barbados is a coral island, a coral reef stretches all around Barbados' coastline, providing for unlimited surfing conditions all over. No matter whether a swell approaches the island from a northerly or westerly direction or whether it's moving in from the East or the South, Barbados is guaranteed to have surf somewhere along it's shores at almost any given day of the year.
Also Inchcape is blessed with a surf break right in front of the property:
The shorebreak at Inchcape on the western end of Silver Sands beach is a pitchy shorebreak and can fit all sorts of descriptions, from mushy to super clean, it can be quite powerful or moderate and changes daily
We are the people who discovered Silver Sands for the sport of windsurfing. We were the first windsurfers in Silver Sands and made Silver Sands known as one of the best wave windsurfing spots in the world.
Wolfgang Lange purchased this apartment in 1992
The Inchcape Seaside Villas are situated in a unique location, right on the water at the western end of Silver Sands Beach. Inchcape, as it presents itself today, developed from a plantation style property from 1920 and combines now the charm of the old with all modern amenities. Due to our location and proximity to the water we enjoy the best climate Barbados has to offer.
The houses have constantly been renovated and upgraded and Inchcape is recognized today as a unique and one of the most luxurious properties of such a kind in Barbados. Our beach is a beautiful and almost private beach, and has it all, from calm waters like on a pond to a small shore break at one end of the beach, which makes it the perfect beach paradise which suits a broad range of holiday makers. Silver Sands Beach can be for everybody, from the sport enthusiast to the one who just wants to relax and enjoy the beautiful turquoises waters of this pristine white sand beach.
Our beach, the almost perfect climate due to the gentle breezes of the trades and our proximity to the water, our strategically location, just a few minutes away from the Oistins fish market and shops and restaurants, and still being in pure nature just minutes away from everything one wants to be close to.
Dear Wolfgang and Rosie, we arrived safely, but shaken and exhausted to Europe, where the temperatures are just 30 degrees lower than yours :(
We would like to again thank your for your kindness and for being prepared to host our unforgetable wedding. Thanks again

Our apartment was clean and well equipped. The rooms were very comfortable, there was a terrace and a roof terrace.
The hotel is situated in a large green and the beautiful beach is just beside the hotel
The owner and the team, they all were very friendly, and they helped us to find nice places on the island.
We would come here again!
The compex is located directly at the sea with a nice, green lawn in front of it. The buildings are in a remarkable good condition and furnished tastefully. The guests were mainly from US, Canada and from all over Europe. Everybody has been very relaxed and pleasant. The owners are very nice and helped us with organizing reservations, rental car and excursions. We can highly recommend this place and will get back there soon!
Beautiful property. Clean, nice decor and gorgeous views. The owners, Wolfgang and Rosie were very attentive. Highly recommend.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed a peaceful 21/2 weeks at Inchcape . We rented Seaside Cottage A . We particularly enjoyed being steps away from the beach , great for walks ,paddling in the surf and watching the intrepid kite surfers skimming , and often airborne , over the waves. The loft bedroom is delightful, surrounded by traditional jalousie shutters , with cool trade winds and the sounds of the surf to lull us to sleep .It has a large adjoining deck where we ate most meals while enjoying the ocean views . The maid service was excellent . The maids were so nice , quite charming , very thorough , efficient and accomodating to our every request.Wolfgang and Rosi are very lucky to have them on their team ! For transportation to and from Miami Beach at OIstins , where we liked to swim , and buy groceries from the well stocked supermarket we relied on Rodney , Wolfgang's local taxi service , who also met us in and delivered us back to the airport . If you are looking for a restful Barbados holiday , away from the busy commercial resorts on the west coast , this is just the place !
Barbados is my favourite place for kitesurf/surf
with Rosi and Wolfgang we feel "at home" not as guests, we come here very often, both in winter and summer
I believe it is the best accomodation to unite surf sport and the quality of comfort and relax
The villas and apartments are located on the very private ocean front estate of the “Inchcape Seaside Villas”, which is clustered on the southern most tip of Barbados. The houses are facing into the gentle breezes of the trades, which provide for the most perfect climate Barbados has to offer, never too warm or too cold. Inchcape also overlooks one of the island's most beautiful and unspoiled white sand beaches and is surrounded by brilliant clear, turquoise blue water. The beach is heaven for swimming and snorkeling, windsurfing and kitesurfing, surfing and boogie boarding. One side of Silver Sands Beach can have a little shore beak while the other side is much calmer and ideal for swimming and sea bathing. Life in this part of the island is casual and unhurried in the true Barbadian tradition. The small fishing village of Oistins is just a few minutes away and there are plenty of restaurants and supermarkets from in walking distance to just minutes away by car.
Other Activities: kitesurfing, boogie boarding, bodysurfing, and much more.
Golf: The Inchcape management gladly arranges tee times and lessons. The Barbados Golf Club, Sandy Lane and Royal Westmoreland have excellent pro shops. The combination of golf, sun and the Caribbean Sea, a comfortable place To stay at Inchcape and enjoying the privilege of being able to play a round of Golf at Royal Westmoreland, aren't those reasons enough to try Barbados for a golf vacation?
Barbados has excellent 18-hole championship golf courses. Sandy Lane with two Tom Fazio designed courses will rank amongst the finest golf resorts in the world. The elegance and beauty of the course of Royal Westmoreland golf course, one of the best of Robert Trent Jones jr.'s designs, is outstanding and if there is one course to play in Barbados, it's definitely the one of Royal Westmoreland. The Barbados Golf and Country Club at Durants near Oistins and Silver Sands along with the 18-hole signature course at Apes Hill round up the picture of Barbados as a world class quality golf destination and makes the island a serious contender for being the No.1 Golf destination in the Caribbean.
