On the West Coast of Barbados, coral shore beaches of fine white sand stretch along a blue-green sea. Coral reefs fringe the Barbados shoreline to provide excellent snorkeling and Scuba Diving. Along the East Coast a lively surf is blown briskly by the strong and constant trade winds and the waves pound against a wild beach and rocky shore. The constant breeze of the trade winds give Barbados a mild and pleasant tropical climate. When you visit Barbados, you will see it is mostly a flat coral island with excellent beaches, but there are rolling hills and many deep ridges and gullies, with an interesting distribution of flora and fauna. Within the Barbados coral core there is a vast array of caves and underground lakes which provide an excellent supply of drinking water that is amongst the purest in the world.

British sailors who landed on Barbados in the 1620s at the site of present-day Holetown on the west coast found the island uninhabited. As elsewhere in the eastern Caribbean Arawak Indians may have been annihilated by invading Caribs who are believed to have subsequently abandoned the Island. From the arrival of the first British settlers in 1627-28 until independence in 1966, Barbados was under uninterupted British control. Nevertheless Barbados always enjoyed a large measure of local autonomy. Its house of Assembly which began meeting in 1639 is the third oldest legislative body in the Western Hemisphere preceded only by Bermuda's legislature and the Virginia House of Burgesses. As the sugar industry developed into the main commercial enterprise, Barbados was divided into large plantation estates which replaced the small holdings of the early British settlers. Some of the displaced farmers relocated to British Colonies in North America. In order to work the plantations, slaves were brought from Africa; the slave trade ceased a few years before the abolition of slavery throughout the British Empire in 1834. The Vuemont development on Mount Brevitor was previously a sugar plantation. The Island is divided into 11 parishes and the city of Bridgetown for administrative purposes. There is no local government. Vuemont Villa has a constant temperature range with a welcome cooling breeze.
