The area of Weymouth and neighboring Henrys is right in the heart of Bridgetown, and offers central living in the heart of the city. This area features numerous bars, great transport connections to the rest of the island, restaurants, cultural attractions and access to the city's best beaches via a short bus or taxi ride.

The area has good transport links and is certainly one of the more affordable neighborhoods to live in on the "Platinum Coast" of Barbados.

Worthing Beach, Dover Beach and Miami Beach are all favorites in this area. On the western limit of the neighborhood, Worthing is a great neighborhood filled with amenities and great connections to the rest of the island. The St. Lawrence Gap is known as the island's nightlife district with eateries, clubs and restaurants dominating this very touristic area. To the east along the coast of Oistins lots of supermarkets, resorts and hotels can be found, with most affordable housing options just a little inland. The area is considered expensive but convenient and popular.

Needhams Point - Garrison
Close to center Bus
This historical area of Barbados, just southeast of the center of Bridgetown is dominated by some of the most beautiful beaches on the island. The area around Needham's Point and Garrison is filled with hotels, restaurants, diving schools, boutiques and bars. The area is also home to the Barbados National Museum and the Garrison Savannah, Barbados' famous racecourse. This area will certainly be more expensive and dominated by tourists, making it feel perhaps less authentic. Nonetheless, beautiful beaches and some of the island's best street food might make it all worth it!
