Things To Do
Godings Beach House is perfectly placed for guests looking to explore the island. Our team is always on hand and able to arrange tours of the island (by boat or by car), as well as an array of experiences such as private yoga or massage sessions, water sports instruction or perhaps a peaceful sunset cruise.
Beach - St Peter lies in the north west of Barbados and is home to part of the Platinum Coast, renowned for its sparkling water and fine beaches. The parish, one of 11, also has a number of charming fishing villages and popular dive spots. As it covers only 34 square kilometres, St Peter’s attractions are never far away; the whole island measures a maximum of only 34km long by 23km wide.
Walking - Farley Hill National Park, high up on a hill overlooking the island’s rugged Atlantic coast, has magnificent gardens, intriguing ruins and spectacular views. It also hosts events including the annual Barbados Jazz Festival.
Golf and Polo - It’s only a few minutes’ drive to two of the island’s most prestigious golf clubs, Sandy Lane and Royal Westmoreland, or watch polo at Apes Hill or Lion Castle.
Sightseeing - St Nicholas Abbey, built in 1660, is one of only three Jacobean mansions in the Western Hemisphere and has a long tradition of producing its own rum.
Shopping - Limegrove Lifestyle Centre in the neighbouring parish of St. James, is home to designer stores, cafes, bars and restaurants, including the Lime Bar for al fresco dining. It also offers a luxurious boutique cinema. Further away there’s St Lawrence Gap, popular for its nightlife, restaurants and shopping, and be sure to check out ‘Fish Friday’ in Oistins - an island must-do!
Race Fans - Enjoy a day of horse racing at the Garrison Savannah, near the capital, Bridgetown.
