Holed up in Holetown

Holetown is a lively place, with restaurants and bars lining First and Second Streets, and more eateries located along the beachfront. The beach is a nice sandy one, so you can combine a bit of beach life with a walk around the historical center and a visit to the first church built on Barbados.

Holetown is the oldest settlement in Barbados. The slightly off-putting moniker came about because of a very narrow inlet near the town, the Hole, where ships were once unloaded and cleaned.

There's a festival every February, to celebrate the town's founding, with parades, crafts and every kind of colorful street entertainment.
