Speightstown is a town with a strong sense of community and history just 12 miles northwest of Bridgetown on the western coast of Barbados. It hosts one of the island's busiest ports and has a number of great amenities close by including supermarkets, restaurants, bars and easy access to the beach. The area has good transport links and is certainly one of the more affordable neighborhoods to live in on the "Platinum Coast" of Barbados. Typically, Speightstown is quieter than other popular neighborhoods, but has great recreational opportunities on Heywood's Beach, Speightstown Esplanade, its numerous galleries and street food spots.
