Enjoy watersports at your own any pace in Barbados
 

From jet skis and paddle boards to lively beach clubs - Barbados has it all

If you're looking for some fun during your stay, Barbados has the answer. The watersports guys will make themselves known to you on the beaches and are grateful for the business but they are very laid back and will never hassle. Or visit the new Nikki Beach at Port Ferdinand for a fun day out.

The Royal Westmoreland Beach Club (re)opens at Mullins

by Mark Hammerton

Over the past five years, we have spent many a happy afternoon and/or evening at Mullins Bar, just across the road from our own home on the island and we were very sad to see it close in early March following the huge storms which undermined the structure of the building at that time. Six months later and after a comprehensive programme of refurbishment, the bar re-opened a few weeks ago under the direct management of Royal Westmoreland and as a members-only beach club for Royal Westmoreland members.

Nikki Beach Barbados – now I’m feeling my age

by Mark Hammerton

Lisa and I had met a couple of the local Nikki Beach marketing team at Little Bristol Bar on a number of occasions and they invited us along to spend some time on the sunbeds and experience Nikki Beach for ourselves. We duly obliged – I was wearing my slightly sceptical hat (“luxury lifestyle brand” – not really my thing) but Lisa was rather more open minded and didn’t see much wrong with the idea of an afternoon on a sunbed with a glass of champagne.

Another day in paradise

by Lisa Hammerton

We met Charlie nearly 10 years ago and his calm, friendly and laid-back personality soon won us over. We were quickly convinced that our children’s holiday would be less than complete without a ride on a jet ski with him. He even convinced us that we should give it ago too. And give it ago we all did and on more than one occasion that holiday!

Water-skiing with Tiger Tony - he's Great!

by James Smith

A permanent sight in the shallows of the wonderful sweep of Alleynes Bay, Tiger Tony’s humble speedboat is a constant reminder to me that my younger brother, Will is the superior water-skier. We became friends with Tony on one of our first visits to the island and haven’t turned to anyone else since; he is our go-to-guy for all things that involve a speedboat.

Mark and Lisa Hammerton

We are Mark and Lisa Hammerton and we are lucky enough to spend our time organising villa and apartment holidays to the wonderful Caribbean island of Barbados.

We have been involved with the travel industry for most of our working lives but fell in love with Barbados after many visits and ended up buying a second home there.

We would love to talk to you about the island and our selection of wonderful properties and, as our priority is matching the right property to your requirements, we will always be open and honest in what we have to say.
