St James lies on the west coast of Barbados on the sparkling tranquil waters of the Caribbean Sea. St James is hard to beat for swimming, snorkelling and water-sports or for sunbathing on a spectacular fine sand beach. Folkestone Marine Park, which has an inshore reef, is home to numerous fish, sea anemones, sea lilies, corals and sponges providing great snorkelling and diving. The choice of both man-made and natural attractions seems endless. Enjoy a round of golf, visit a sugar plantation or sample the produce of the acclaimed rum factories. Experience the warm-hearted hospitality of the Bajan people, explore the island and discover the wonderful variety of tropical plants and trees, all from your base in St James. St James is only 25 minutes from Bridgetown where you can find shopping, great nightlife and all the local excursions on offer. If you love history, this is one of the most historic areas in Barbados with wonderfully preserved buildings. The British first came to Barbados in 1625 and returned two years later to found their first settlement at Holetown in St James. Stunning beaches, natural beauty, interesting history and exciting activities are all part of a unique holiday experience in St. James.
