Additional Location Information
Sapphire Beach runs onto Dover Beach which is one of the longer and wider white sand beaches found on the island and has mostly calm waters and is safe for swimming year-round. For the safety of locals and visitors alike there is a daily lifeguard presence as can be identified by the yellow lifeguard hut found there and on many of the other popular swimming beaches. Because of its beauty and popularity, Dover Beach hosts a wide range of both water sport and other beach rental service providers such as SunFish and catamaran sailing, boogie board, snorkel, beach lounges and umbrella rentals to name a few. Just opposite the beach is a playing field where you can enjoy an occasional game of cricket, soccer or basketball.
The property is located a short 15-minute drive from the airport in the south east and also from the main city Bridgetown (good choice for duty free shopping) in the south west. Barbados is a mostly flat coral island of only 21 by 14 miles (166 square miles) so getting anywhere is a short drive by comparison to most other travel destinations. As a mature holiday destination, the islands infrastructure such as road and road signage are also well developed.
Barbados is known for being safe and for the friendliness of its people so getting around and seeing the sights is recommended and locals will be happy to offer directions should you lose your way. Aside from renting a car, visitors can utilize the available public transportation of Government operated Mercedes coaches or the smaller privately owned buses and vans which can take you anywhere for no more than US$1.00 per trip. Bus stops are located along almost every road and in the case of Sapphire Beach are no more than five minutes' walk away.
As we are very near the St-Lawrence Gap, there are a wide selection of restaurants within easy walking distance as well as bars, nightclubs and gift shops. Small groceries stores and ATM are within walking distance as well. Having a car is not necessary but if you want to rent one, a parking spot is available for you in the complex (within the secure area).
Oistins is an outdoors location 10 minutes' drive away famous for fresh local seafood (Fish Fry) prepared as you watch with great bars, music, gift shopping and is popular with locals and visitors alike. North, along the coast you, will find Speightstown and Holetown boast a long and intriguing history. The scenery around the Crane area is spectacular. The island offers many activities from submarine and coastal catamaran trips to cave and historic plantation tours. There is also a wildlife reserve and nature tours such as the Welchman Hall Gully. For indoor shopping, the Sheraton Mall (2.6 km from Sapphire) for shopping, movies, great food court. Feel free to ask us for recommendations based on your preferences such as coach tours or more active ones such as the Zip Line adventures where you glide in harness over one of the most scenic natural gullies on island.
The fringes and reefs found off Barbados blossom with healthy sponges, coral and plant life. There are several types of reefs, each one unique in its own special way.
No lack of things to do but don't forget above all:
