Although you likely won't find that many recreational opportunities on-site at The Sandpiper, that shouldn't imply there aren't other intriguing things to see and do during your time in Barbados.

The Sandpiper has one swimming pool, so even during your busiest days it makes a great excuse to cool off and refresh. This property is also located right on the water, so there will be more than one way to stay cool outdoors when you stay here.


Although The Sandpiper doesn't have a golf course on the property, it may be possible to arrange for a tee time nearby. The area's golf courses are Sandy Lane Old Nine Golf Course, Royal Westmoreland, and Sandy Lane Country Club Golf Course. All of them are within a mile and a half and the most proximate of the collection, Sandy Lane Old Nine Golf Course, is only a meager hike away from the lodging, so it won't be a bother to make a quick trip for some rounds on the links. You can play 9 holes at this course. It is a par 36, with a total length of 3216 yards. If you'd like to see if it is possible to schedule a tee time, you can call the course at (246) 444-2000.


Guests of The Sandpiper can enjoy complementary banana boat rides and water skiing.
