Sea Turtle is located on Brighton Beach, 2 miles north of Bridgetown (city centre and main fish market) and 3.5 miles south of Sandy Lane Hotel. Kensington Oval is walking distance and, being 4.5 miles from both Holetown and St Lawrence, the beach-house is equidistant between both the major nightlife areas on the island. Some of the islands best bars and restaurants (Cin Cin, The Cliff, Daphne’s & Scarlett’s) are all less than a 5 minute drive north. There is a large modern supermarket only 600m away, and from there cheap local busses can be caught either up the West Coast or, via Bridgetown, to anywhere on the island.
At over 1.2 miles Brighton Beach is the longest on the Platinum Coast and when put together with Paradise Beach provides almost 2 miles of uninterrupted powder soft sand. It is the largest turtle hatchery on the island and turtles are often seen laying eggs, hatching and swimming in the surrounding waters. Green Monkeys visit the property and the garden is full of humming birds.
Being set back over 100yds from the main road, Sea Turtle does not experience the road noise suffered by most of the villas in St James and because Brighton Beach is a mainly residential beach, with no hotels or apartment blocks and only a handful of properties available for holiday rental, the beach itself is almost deserted for the majority of the day/week. The water is usually calm and clear, swimming is safe with negligible current, and a gentle slope to the sand.
Watersports are available to the North of the beach and there is a beach bar/restaurant (Weisers) 200 yds south.
