PLAN OF FIDJI & BIBIAN'S BEACH HOUSES:-

 

THE LOCATION:-

Located in Fitts Village - within the parish of St. James - on the beautiful ‘platinum’ west coast of Barbados, Fidji Beach House is only 80 metres from the beach and the crystal clear turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea.

Many activities including scuba diving, catamaran trips, jet skis and glass bottomed boat trips are available on the west coast. Snorkel off the beach amongst the colourful tropical fish and watch the huge frigate birds soaring overhead or diving into the sea to catch fish. Turtles swim in the shallows off the west coast beaches so you may be lucky enough to encounter them whilst paddling or swimming.

For basic food items there is a mini mart at the petrol station which is less than a 5 minute walk from Fidji Beach House. There is a small restaurant - serving local food at lunchtimes - located next to Jordan's Supermarket which is a 2 minute drive/a 15 minute walk. Jordan's offer a free shuttle van back to the house if guests require it to transport their groceries. There is a deli in Jordan's supermarket called Kylro that is open for breakfast, lunch and take out. Il Tempio restaurant is opposite Jordan's. There are 5 other bars/restaurants in the area, namely Cariba, Karibu, Scarlett, Daphnes and The Cliff restaurant - which is famous for it's food. You will find other restaurants at Paynes Bay which is a 20-25 minute walk.

Buses run frequently from the stops that are close to Fidji Beach House and they have a set rate of BDS$ 2 to any destination in Barbados. Taxis are readily available and there is a reputable taxi stand only 3 doors down.

A 10 minute drive/short bus ride north of Fidji Beach House will take you to all of the amenities in Sunset Crest & Holetown. Here you will find an excellent selection of restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets.

Other amenities in Sunset Crest & Holetown include the Limegrove Lifestyle Centre - with its shops, cafes & cinemas, plus lots more - bars, banks, a supermarket, mini markets, a butchers, an ice cream parlour, wine shops, fruit and veg. stalls, bakeries, coffee shops, a Post Office, medical centres, the Chattel Village shops (offering everything from souvenirs to gourmet food), and Sunset Mall - a shopping plaza with a small department store (Cave Shepherd) and a cafe plus other outlets - are also within easy walking distance.

Two world-class golf courses - The Royal Westmoreland and Sandy Lane - are within easy reach.

The airport is a 30 minute drive and the capital, Bridgetown, is 20 minutes away by car.

Beach near Fidji* Fitts Village beach is located just north of Prospect and just south of Paynes Bay - off the main highway (Highway 1) on the west coast of the island.

This fishing area extends towards the neighbouring Paynes Bay Fishing Market. It also boasts a very select group of restaurants, including Il Tempio which overlooks the Caribbean Sea. This place of fine dining is the only Italian restaurant in the district and is just one of a few Italian restaurants in all of Barbados.

The beaches along the west coast are excellent for swimming.

The Fitts Village area, with its clear blue waters containing several small reefs - especially to the south – provide interesting snorkelling. The seas here are calm - as you would expect on this coast - although it is a bit more lively in some spots and at high tide. Occasionally you may spot a turtle surfacing for a breath of air.

Fitts Village beach is fairly wide and quite quiet. It is the ideal spot to enjoy the sea, sand and sun or relax with a good book under the shade of the trees that border the beach which is mostly used by locals from the surrounding districts and guests who stay in the accommodation located on the beachfront.

Fitts Village beach is a favourite nesting spot for turtles with many hatchlings beginning their life right there. The Barbados Sea Turtle Project also releases hatchlings on this beach and encourages locals and visitors to assist in this process. (Barbados is home to the second largest Hawksbill turtle nesting population in the Caribbean. The nesting season for these turtles is May to October).

Picnic benches are scattered among the Casuarina trees lining the shore and to the north is a small open esplanade.

Parking in Fitts Village is available at the Church of the Good Shepherd (a beautiful seaside Anglican church) or you can easily catch a bus as Fitts Village is on the main bus route. If you wish you can get off at the Fitts Village esplanade directly opposite Jordans Supermarket.

"Hello Irene

We had a great holiday. Denise and Rudy were lovely.

Your website and the information you sent was very helpful and I can't think of anything else that could have been included.

We thought that Fidji Beach House & Bibian's Beach House were both nice and clean and good value for money bearing in mind the fabulous location on the beach.

We had a marvellous holiday.

Many thanks for your help".
