Port Ferdinand This just might be the best-kept secret in Barbados right now. The spectacularly designed Port Ferdinand is Barbados’ premier residential resort, meaning it combines the ease and comfort of residential properties with the luxury and amenities of a full-service resort. Set just outside Speightstown in the wonderful northwestern corridor of the island, Port Ferdinand features a collection of 46 opulently appointed units, some with private plunge pools, all set around a gorgeous marina setting. It’s just across the road from a privileged perch of beach, and while the dining, both in the overwater pool and the Dockside eatery, is terrific, Port Ferdinand has a party piece: it’s home to the only Nikki Beach in the English-speaking Caribbean. It’s the new luxury epicentre of the island.
