This guide will introduce you to Villa Sunnyside, highlighting its unique offerings as a beach villa of choice and why Barbados has become the chosen destination for many in search of the perfect beach villa experience.

Why is Villa Sunnyside the perfect Beach Villa?

The prime appeal of any beach villa is its proximity to the Caribbean seas on the West Coast. Villa Sunnyside is located within 5 minutes walk of the coast. Ensuring guests are a stone’s throw away from a morning swim or a tranquil evening stroll.

The villa’s recent refurbishment provides guests with contemporary comforts, from state-of-the-art amenities to chic interiors. Yet, the spirit of Barbadian tradition is felt in every nook and cranny.

What makes Villa Sunnyside ideal as a beach villa is its exclusive access to Sunset Crest Beach House, a beachfront haven. Located a short walk away, this club provides the luxury and relaxation synonymous with beach villas in Barbados.

Its strategic beachfront location ensures that guests can enjoy an uninterrupted view of the Caribbean Sea. With keycard access at both its entrances, one directly on the beach and the other on the main road, guests are assured a serene environment, undisturbed by the general hustle and bustle of Holetown. Guests at Villa Sunnyside can use the Beach house as a base to enjoy Paul Owens restaurant, take drinks from the bar, or simply lounge by the pool, taking in the magnificent sunsets.

What beach is Villa Sunnyside near?

Nestled in the idyllic surroundings of Barbados, Villa Sunnyside is close to some of the most enchanting beaches the island has to offer, making it an ideal destination for beach enthusiasts.

Just a 30-second drive or 5-minute walk is Holetown Beach. This beach has expansive golden sands and calm turquoise waters. The shoreline is dotted with a variety of restaurants and bars, allowing guests to enjoy tropical beverages and delightful Caribbean cuisine with a sea view.

Venture a little further to the left, and you’ll find yourself at a more rugged and untouched beach. This beach, with its rocky terrains and abundant marine life, is a snorkeler’s paradise.

Whether you’re in the mood for a serene sunbathing session, a delightful beachside lunch, or an underwater adventure, Villa Sunnyside’s prime location ensures that the best of Barbados’ beaches are just around the corner. So, pack your beach bag, and let the island’s coastal charms enchant you!

Why are Barbados’ West Coast Beaches so good?

Barbados boasts a diverse array of coastlines that cater to a myriad of vacation desires. Among these, the beaches of the West Coast, often affectionately dubbed the “Platinum Coast,” stand out as some of the finest in the entire Caribbean region.

What makes these beaches truly special are their calm and serene waters. In contrast to the rugged Eastern coastline, the West Coast offers beaches with tranquil waters. Protected from the brunt of the fierce Atlantic waves, these waters present an ideal setting for swimming and snorkelling.

The beaches here have really soft sands, perfect for leisurely strolls or sunbathing.

The coastline is dotted with some of Barbados’ best resorts, villas, and premium dining venues.

The coast is teeming with vibrant marine life. Colourful fish-filled reefs, the occasional manta rays, and sea turtles make this area a dream for snorkelers and scuba divers.

No mention of the West Coast would be complete without highlighting its spectacular sunsets. As the day draws to a close, the horizon witnesses a magical transformation as pinks, purples, and oranges hit the sky.

Practical tips for Barbados beaches

Villa Sunnyside offers travellers access to a great beach with pristine white sands and crystal-clear waters. However, a day at the beach is best enjoyed with a little bit of preparation and awareness. Here are some top tips to ensure a memorable and safe beach experience in Barbados:

  1. Sun Protection: The Caribbean sun can be deceptively strong. Always wear sunscreen with high SPF, especially during peak sun hours.

  2. Stay Hydrated: Sipping on coconut water or a bottle of Banks beer can be refreshing, but ensure you’re also drinking plenty of plain water to stay hydrated.

  3. Safety First: Not all beaches in Barbados have lifeguards. If you’re planning to swim or indulge in water sports, always check for the presence of lifeguards and heed any warning signs or flags.

  4. Avoid Isolated Areas: While the allure of a secluded beach spot might be tempting, it’s safer to stay in areas where there are other beachgoers, especially if you’re unfamiliar with the territory.

  5. Protect Your Belongings: It’s always a good idea to carry valuables in a waterproof pouch and avoid leaving belongings unattended on the beach.

  6. Seeing Turtles:
    • Observe From a Distance: If you’re lucky enough to spot turtles on the beach or in the water, always maintain a respectful distance. These creatures are protected, and any interference can be harmful to them.
    • Do Not Touch: No matter how tempting it might be, never touch or attempt to handle the turtles. If you see a turtle in distress, contact local authorities or turtle conservation groups.
    • Tread Lightly: If you happen upon a nesting site, walk gently and avoid disturbing the area. Turtle hatchlings are very vulnerable and rely on the safety of their nests.

Dining at Holetown beach

Just moments away from Villa Sunnyside, Holetown presents a smorgasbord of dining options that cater to every palate, ranging from laid-back beachfront eateries to upscale gourmet restaurants.

  • Zaccios: This gem, positioned perfectly for sunset gazing, is not just about its picturesque setting. The culinary delights on offer are equally captivating. Whether you’re craving a hearty lunch after a day at the beach or looking for the perfect spot to enjoy a romantic dinner, Zaccios never disappoints.

  • Just Grilling: For those moments when only a perfectly grilled piece of meat or fish will do, Just Grilling emerges as the go-to spot. The casual ambience is paired with an array of grilled specialities. It’s not right on the beach – but only over the road.

  • High-End Options: For guests seeking a more refined dining experience, Holetown does not disappoint. Restaurants like Tides and Paul Owens bring gourmet dining to the beachfront. With their elegant settings, curated menus, and impeccable service, these establishments promise a memorable meal and a view of the beach to die for!
