Magic Isle Apartments/Grocery Store Nearby?

We'll be staying at the Magic Isle Apartments, can someone tell me if there is a grocery store within walking distance? Also, is Magic Isle on the main bus route? Thanks!

There are two small markets within walking distance. Go left and you are a short walk away from the new Lantern Mall where there is an Imart. Go right and you have a short walk to the Quayside Mall which has another market. Almost across the street is Wine World which has better wine and beer prices than the two markets. So you will have no problem filling all your needs.

If you want a large supermarket then you're not too far from Big B's although it would be quite a walk with heavy groceries.

You are right on the bus route on the main south coast road at Magic Isle. You'll find blue buses, yellow buses and route taxis (ZR plates) all run outside towards Oistins and Bridgetown and charge $1.50BDS for a single ride.

If you go to Big B's grocery store, they have a van that is free that will take you and your groceries back to Magic Isle....Mind you, sometimes the route is a little long, taking you on a tour of many residential neighborhoods. But I have to say that we got to see areas that we normally wouldn't have seen. Have a good trip!!
