SEA GLASS VILLA - LATANA 39
WHERE IS SEA GLASS VILLA? Sea Glass Villa is part of the Lantana complex. It is located on the West Coast of Barbados between Holetown and Speightstown in an area called Weston. It is perfectly situated across the street from the ocean and within spitting distance of two picturesque beaches, and everything the West Coast has to offer in terms of luxury, dining and entertainment.
FROM THE AIRPORT
It takes approximately 45 min to drive from the airport. If you are not renting a car, we are happy to arrange transport for your group to and from.
8 min drive south in Holetown, the main hub of the West Coast with all major services including groceries, luxury mall, banks and more.
8 min drive north you will find the quaint town of Speightstown. Here you also have several restaurants, beach bars, grocery store, hardware store and many amenities.
Not everyone makes a trip into Barbados' capital city of Bridgetown. It is about 25 min drive away and also easily accessible by bus.
WHAT IS NEAR SEA GLASS VILLA? We love this location for ease of getting up and down the coast road by bus or car plus jetting up to the main highway to explore the rest of the island. Even if you are not up for adventuring further afield, there is plenty to do close by.
There is a beach directly across the street, plus two of our favourites short distances in either direction. 2 min North is Reed's Bay (beautiful and less populated). 2 min south is Alleyne's Bay with plenty of restaurants and beach chairs ranging in price.
MILLIE IFILL FISH MARKET & VEGGIE STAND
100 yards up the road is the fish market where you can buy fresh caught fish every day of the week. Shawn's Vegetable stand has a variety of fresh produce to round out your meal.
JOHN MOORE RUM SHOP
One of the best on the island, John Moore Shop is a small bar on the beach frequented by tourists and locals alike. Visit on your first day, you'll likely be back many more times during the day, at sunset, or in the evening.
MARILYN THE LUNCH LADY
Every school day you'll see Marilyn set up across the road selling lunches and snacks to the school kids. We highly recommend grabbing lunch from Marilyn if you want something to grab and go, or just have ready for later. He rotis and pastas are to die for and if you are feeling like a Bajan favourite, try the Saltfish & Bake for breakfast.
DRIVING & WALKING DISTANCES:
A parking spot in our gated complex is provided free of charge. We find having a rental car very convenient for zipping around but many of our guests are perfectly happy taking the local bus up and down the coast, or grabbing a taxi.
