Hummingbird is located on Brighton Beach, 2.5 miles North of Bridgetown and 3.5 miles South of Sandy Lane. Kensington Oval is walking distance and, being 4.5 miles from both Holetown and St Lawrence, the beach-house is equidistant between both the major restaurant and nightlife areas on the island.
At over 1.2 miles Brighton Beach is the longest on the Platinum Coast and when put together with Paradise Beach provides almost 2 miles of uninterrupted powder soft sand. It is the largest turtle hatchery on the island and turtles are often seen laying eggs, hatching and swimming in the surrounding waters.
Set back 200yds from the main road, Hummingbird does not experience the road noise suffered by most St James villas and because Brighton Beach is a mainly residential beach, with no hotels or apartment blocks and only a handful of properties available for holiday rental, the beach itself is almost deserted for the majority of the day/week. The water is usually calm and clear, and swimming is safe with negligible current, and a gentle slope to the sand.
Watersports are available to the north of the beach and there is a beach bar/restaurant (Weisers) 200 yds south. The nearest supermarket is half a mile behind Hummingbird, we are not on a street bus route but the nearest bus stop is only 5 minutes walk away at the Supermarket.
