Martin's Bay, Barbados the ultimate island getaway

Far away from the luxurious west coast villas and resorts, apart from the bustling south coast beaches, lies the tranquil seaside village of Martin's Bay.

Here the mighty waves of the Atlantic Ocean are tamed by off-shore reefs, reduced to gentle waves lapping the golden shore.

It's where you'll meet local fishermen, tossing their nets and searching the pools for octopus (known locally as sea cat).

The delicious aroma from the Bay Tavern restaurant beckons you in to savour their legendary seafood dishes including whole Red Snapper so large that the head and tail extend well beyond your plate!

Such an incredibly fresh meal is best enjoyed on the seaside benches, a reminder to thank nature for its bounty.

A hike along the old train line, dip in the ocean pools, and walk along the beach to admire the rock formations is the perfect way to end the day at this stunning seaside village.
