Barbados West Coast Boardwalk

Updated on June 5, 2013


Not nearly as glamorous as the south coast boardwalk (which we'll explore in our next hub!), the Barbados west coast boardwalk is a wonderful place for a beachfront stroll and an amazing spot to watch the sun setting into the Caribbean Sea!

Most people join the boardwalk at it's northern end, just south of Zaccio's restaurant (formerly Cocomos). Zaccios is a great restaurant but that's a topic for another hub!

If you're driving, you can park just behind the Holetown police station and library complex and walk along the beach to a south to pick up the west coast boardwalk.

If travelling by bus, just ask the driver to drop you off in Holetown and then look for the Zaccio's or Surf Side restaurant signs.

What you'll see along the boardwalk:

  • lovely Barbados beaches
  • catamarans and fishing boats sailing by
  • at the right time... gorgeous sunsets and maybe even the 'green flash'
  • the Beach House and The Tides restaurants (tip: there's also a great Art Gallery at The Tides!)
  • Villas On The Beach condos
  • lots of friendly faces :)

For a satellite map view of the sights along the boardwalk visit

Beachlands, a selection of exclusive beachfront villas, is being constructed on the site of the old Chefette restaurant and Regent Hotel... turn your head to the west and enjoy the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea instead!

Holetown Monument

The west coast boardwalk is right in the heart of Holetown, the site of the first English landing in Barbados by Captain John Powell in 1625. Just in front of the library is a monument commemorating this event. If you are visiting the island in February, head to the Holetown Festival, a wonderful celebration of music, art, craft, local culture and history.

A bite to eat

After your stroll, you may be a bit hungry.

Stop by the affordable beachfront Surfside restaurant for great sandwiches, burgers and local cuisine.

Or head to Zaccios, also beachfront, for a slightly more expensive, but still very affordable, meal. Zaccios has a wide menu.. pizza, fish & chips, salads, sandwiches, wraps, crab cakes.

The Bean and Bagel in the mall just across the road also has a wonderful selection of food and coffee.

Or try the deli at the Super Centre supermarket, also located in the mall.

There's also a KFC nearby for those with a fast food craving!
