Fryers Wells Beach and "Sea Symphony" home rental

We are family of 9 -11 adults planning a winter vacation in late Feb 2015. "Sea Symphony" was 1 of the more reasonable villas in Barbados w/6 bdrms/6baths. We are all swimmers/snorkelers and are more interested in hearing about beach/swimming and snorkeling than the staff and the quality of the drapes and towels.

Questions for anyone who knows this villa and Fryers Wells Beach.

1) Is this area safe as home while lovely has gates on windows and read this this area was "dirty"(?)

2) How far is the home from Fryers Beach? Google map does not how home clearly Read that this beach is "narrow' in winter- how narrow? Can 1 put a beach chair and sit on this beach w/o getting wet w/water? Is it at least 15- 20 ' wide in Feb? We are not joggers/runners so we dont need a mile wide beach..........

3) How is the walk to this beach from home? We have 1 who is elderly.

4) Is this beach fairly quiet/empty - prefer no loud music and tons of bars/peddlers all day.

5) Can 1 swim off this beach and actually snorkel and see some sealife off shore ( NOT too deep) We dont want to have to take a boat or go very deep.

Any feedback on this area near Speightstown/Fryers Wells Beach and "Sea Symphony" would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Fryers Well Beach is on the North West Coast and is know for surfing. I 'won't recommend it for swimming and certainly not for snorkelling. wannasurf.com/spot/…

I'd suggest looking for something future down the West coast if these are your primary interests.

Suggest looking for a villa in the Fitts Village area -south of Holetown - or nearer to Holetown itself - if you can find a villa that suits on Queensfort - that would be a great location - it is not on the main road (down a small side street )- villas are beach access but not beachfront except for the one down the end - otherwise something in Sunset Crest - walking distance to the beach but not beachside

Suggest looking at the La Paloma thread on TA - it is in Fitts Village and sounds as though it might suit you - have a look see

You may have to check back though the screens for the past few weeks - but there was a good deal of info.

Good luck
