St. James Beach is nestled between Holetown Beach and Folkstone Marine Park on the western coast of Barbados, sometimes called the Platinum coast. Many upscale hotels and resorts line the beaches here. This beach area is bounded by Discovery Bay by Rex Resorts to the south and The Sandpiper to the north.
Even though all beaches are open to the public, access to them can sometimes be difficult as the hotels pretty much cover most of the beachfront real estate. With a little ingenuity, however, you can make your way to the beach and be greeted by beautiful fine sand beaches, gentle surf, and lots of water sport activities. One thing to look out for are the “public access to beach” signs that are posted along the main roads.
