The sea turtles are a highlight of our trips to Barbados. They swim just a quick swim from Treasure Beach, and you can almost set your watch for when they’ll be there. They laze around, nibbling fish handouts, gliding beneath you.
They’re a dependable highlight, just like Treasure Beach. We’ve been visiting for several years and even though we’ve looked at other places to stay, none of them provide the combination of location, friendliness, comfortable rooms, and food the way Treasure Beach does.
We use it as a base for exploring the island – we rent a jeep and cut north, south and across the island, through the miles of sugar cane to the rugged north and east coasts, or to the more populated south coast and Bridgetown, lively on Saturday shopping days. There’s a lot of satisfaction when we pull back into TB’s parking lot, pass through the breezy entry way, order a cool drink and say, “Ahhhhh….”
The Manager’s Welcome Party is something we always look forward to. Jason Patterson is as warm as ever and he and the rest of the TB staff see to our every need without ever seeming intrusive. The other TB guests become people with names and stories – not just familiar faces at meals – and we’ve made some great friends. They’re well-traveled and can stay wherever they wish (and they have, including TB’s large next door neighbor). Year after year, they come back to Treasure Beach.
We continue to try different restaurants around the island, but keep coming back with “It’s really better at Treasure Beach…” It’s the same with the beaches. The swimming’s better just 50 feet away.
And there are these turtles….
