The Bridgetown Harbour

Sailing in BarbadosSituated within the Bajan capital itself at the south-west corner of the island, this is an ideal place to moor if you want to be close to all of the action of Barbados.

This site offers all of the facilities you will need and there are even opportunities to arrange repairs to your boat here.

You may very well be docked close to some very impressive cruise liners, as this dock is also used by them.

Port St. Charles Barbados Marina

Port St. Charles Barbados SailingPort St. Charles is a rather exclusive place for you to dock up in the north west of the island, very close to the  Speightstown village.

The harbour is surrounded by beautifully opulent villas which are for rent, so if you decide to stay in one of the 1 to 3 bedroom luxury properties, you could have your own boat moored very close by.

Here you will find 6 berths which can cater for yachts up to 250ft in length. Further, there are two other moorings offshore that are able to cater for vessels that are even larger than this.
