We were looking for a special location to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary and we could not have picked a better location than The Wicket in Speightstown. This apartment is spacious, clean, modern and located right on the beach. The beach is very clean and there is shallow waters close to the shore with a small reef a few yards out to snorkel over.
A short walk from the apartment finds you in the town itself with a good variety of bars and restaurants, supermarkets, street grocers, a fish market, a bakers, a bank etc. Speightstown has a character of its own and is closer to a real Bajan experience that you might get in an all inclusive or cruise ship deal. If you want to experience true Barbados, this is where you do it.
A hire car is not essential; we had one for convenience, but the buses are very frequent and run all over the island. By car you can reach an attraction within 20 mins, furthest would be 45 mins away around the Bridgetown / Airport area. Top things to do: A must is the sunset & dinner cruise with Cool Running operating out of Bridgetown (Cool Running provide a door to door minibus service from outside of the apartment too), St Nicholas' Abbey, Flower Caves and the Andromeda Botanical Gardens. Every Friday night Oistins Fish Fry is where the party is: food, drink and music from 6pm til late.
This was a very special and memorable holiday. Can't wait to do it again!
