Mangoes is located in Sunset Crest, St James Parish

Across the road, the whole coastal strip is Folkestone underwater National Park and 10 mins walk north to Folkestone itself, there is also a small aquarium.
The two streets of historic Holetown, 5 mins walk away, is where the settlers first landed in Barbados. Today this is home to many restaurants; the whole area has been sympathetically developed to retain traditional Bajan character whilst bringing the local amenities into the 21st century.
The beach and the sea are paramount but there are many other things to see in Barbados - car hire is useful for this. The coastline differs hugely from rugged cliffs and wild seas at North Point to sandy swathes and gentle turquoise lappings on the western side. Inland there is a hilly area know as the "Scotland District" close to Harrison's Caves visitor centre. Several aged plantation houses, rum distilleries, tropical gardens and a wildlife park welcome the public.
Boat trips abound for fishing, relaxing and partying!
