Barbados Yacht Club (Bridgetown, Saint Michael)

Things to do in Saint Michael

Harboring the great city of Bridgetown, capital of Barbados, Saint Michael is the center of commercial activity on the island. It houses an international port of great importance since it’s a must stop for a large number of cruise ships, that moor in it all the time. Recreational craft can moor south of the commercial port, in two large marinas or in a yacht club.

Bridgetown was heavily influenced by the English occupation, so that drinking tea, playing cricket or polo, have become parts of their traditions. The colonial past can also be seen in its beautiful buildings such as the Cathedral of St. Michael and the neo-Gothic House of Parliament. If you wish to learn more about the history and culture of the island you can do so in Barbados Museum, housed in the former British Military Prison. At Saint Michael we find many plantations that form part of the characteristic landscape of the island. Additional information for the boats - Electric current on Barbados is 110 volts. The best time to visit the area is from December to April, although throughout the water temperature is warm, going from 25 to 28 º.

As the parish is located to the west of the island, you will always find calm waters ideal for sailing, but if what you want is to enjoy surfing and the wind, you must be directed to the east.
