Car Hire & St James Mini Guide

Eight miles from the capital is the international airport, Grantley Adams International, you then take the coastal Route and find St James which  is a fabulously wealthy part of Barbados situated on its west coast. You have only got to look at the number of expensive sports cars that pass you in your hire car to know there’s serious money about.  It is the most expensive part of the island and you can understand why with beautiful, nearly unspoilt beaches – the private villas are definitely unspoilt and often guarded! This is the original part of Barbados settled by the British and the parish structure and names evidence this with St James, St Peter and St Lucy making up the western settlements.

How do I get to St James?

Eight miles from the capital is the international airport, Grantley Adams International. Flights arrive there from continental America and Europe with carriers such as BA, Virgin and Thomson. To get to St James, you’ll have a long and slow journey along the coastal highway but the views from it make the journey worthwhile.

Pre book your Rental car and once there drive past the opulent mansions and villas or spend some of your holiday dollars where the rich and famous shop and you’re likely to bump into a celebrity.
