The Settlers Beach Hotel sits back from the main road just north of Holetown on the west coast of Barbados. This small resort has just 22 villas set in 4 acres of tropical gardens overlooking a beautiful sandy beach. The beach sweeps along the bay and the water here is very calm, making it perfect for swimming. This is also a good section of beach to stroll along and heading south you can walk right down to Holetown itself. A wide range of water sports can be arranged directly from the operators who work along the beach and complimentary non-motorised water sports facilities are available from the hotel itself.
