Holetown

© noheadimg

Holetown is the oldest settlement on Barbados. It was originally founded in the 1620's, but nowadays it's an important tourist resort and most of its original buildings have been demolished to make place for luxury hotels and other tourist facilities. Some 19th century structures remain, such as Saint James Church, where you can still see remains of its 17th-century past. A bell, for example, is inscribed with the name of King William.

Holetown's narrow beach is fronted by Folkestone Park, where people come to picnic. The sea offers some good snorkeling and surfing possibilities. The marine museum in the park has exhibitions on fishing and boat building.

There are hotels and restaurants in all sorts and classes in Holetown. The town is on Barbados' western coast, 10 km north of Bridgetown.
