Why Choose Holetown Vacation Rentals?

Holetown, the second largest city in Barbados was originally named Jamestown after King James l of England. The name was eventually changed to Holetown because of a small channel or hole located just off shore which provided a safe landing place for off loading the settlers and cleaning the ships.

Best known for its beautiful scenery, scuba diving and snorkeling it is no wonder that many people travelling to Barbados choose Holetown vacation rentals. There is a marine reserve that stretches for 2 km and at Folkestone Park there is a snorkeling area enclosed by buoys. Here you can see many colorful fish and sometimes turtles. The hawksbill turtle usually nests on local beaches from July to October and the leatherbacks sometimes can be found nesting from February to June. The park also has picnic areas, a lifeguard, vendors and equipment rentals. There are also tours to the reef on glass bottomed boats or to see two small wrecks further down the coast.
