You can tour the subterranean caves and even swim with turtles. The Folkestone Marine Park in Holetown spans several kilometres along the coast and was set up to preserve the coral and shallow areas inhabited by the turtles. There are four reserve zones including two sport zones where motorised aquatic sports are permitted, a scientific zone and a recreational zone where you can snorkel in peace and discover the fascinating underwater world. The Limegrove Lifestyle Centre is one of the most stylish, upmarket places to shop, dine and meander. It is home to the world's leading retail brands including Armani, Louis Vuitton, Michael Kors, Gucci and Ralph Lauren. The open courtyard is charming with a stunning waterfall feature and the dining is wonderful. There are options to try the famous, delicious rum. Many enchanting, quaint Chattle Houses are often boutique outlets selling clothing, jewellery and fine art or are small eateries and cafes. There are so many options for high-class dining, some waterside, as well as piano bars where you can sip the delicious cocktails along to the sounds of the piano and great vocals. Not only does Paynes Bay have a spectacular beach, often known as the Platinum Coast, it has a fabulous fish market where you can buy fresh local fish or just watch as the fishermen bring their catches in. Every Friday you can buy freshly grilled fish from the vendors. It is served with delicious Bajan side dishes and other course there are other Bajan delights including grilled chicken, mararoni pie and Bajan rum to wash it down. Holders Hill is the main polo venue in Barbados. You can spend a very enjoyable afternoon watching the polo. You do not need to understand the rules as the commentator explains as it is played out.
