Located in the western central part of Barbados, the gorgeous parish of Saint James (otherwise known at the Platinum Coast) is renowned for attracting sun-starved tourists luring in the rich and famous. It was deemed the Platinum Coast due to its extravagant beachfront luxury villas, pristine beaches and high land prices.

Although a perfect paradise for the rich and famous, St. James has something for everyone, although it’s more than ideal for those who wish to relax on tranquil beaches and dine in ultimate luxury.
