• St James, Barbados
  • Overview

    Located on the western and central part of the island, Saint James’ parish is one of the larger parishes and offers glorious stretches of pristine sand, beautifully clear, sheltered and calm waters, and some of the most expensive real estate in the whole of the Caribbean, with luxury hotels and villas and beachfront mansions aplenty. Not for nothing has it adopted the epithet the Platinum Coast. It was where the first British settlers, in 1625, landed and declared what is now the city of Holetown, as the island’s first capital, Jamestown. Over a century ago Queen’s College, one of the most prestigious schools in the Caribbean, was opened here. Nowadays, in addition to its property values, Saint James’ is noted for its designer shopping and fine selection of excellent restaurants.
