Cocktails, calypsos, and caressing white sands on your feet – it has to be the beautiful Barbados! This far easterly Caribbean island can be enjoyed by honeymooners, families and adrenalin junkies; there really is something for everyone.
Fishing, kite-surfing or windsurfing is just a few of the many activities available in the Barbados. Although Barbados is only 430sq km in size, there’s a great deal going on there.
There is a history and cultural buzz in the Capital of Bridgetown, with its famous National Heroes Square, elaborate Parliament buildings and Cathedral.
A calmer side of Barbados can be found around the west coast of Barbados where the shoreline is at its calmest and the scenery boasts the most beautiful beaches. It is a perfect idyllic place in Barbados to relax and take in some rum cocktails.
With 97km of breathtaking shoreline, a boat trip is a must. There is so much marine wildlife to enjoy and explore. Inland, there are the sugarcane plantations or the Barbados Wildlife Reserve featuring its deer, monkeys, caymans and tortoises.
Barbados cuisine is an experience. For those who thought black pudding was reserved for Blackpool, it also can be enjoyed in Barbados!
Barbados is superb for diving exploits. There are miles of delightful coral reef, full of marine life, and wrecks to explore. For those who are not swimmers, catamarans, yachts and glass bottomed boats are available to enjoy the sights of the sea. Apparently it is also possible to travel by pirate ship but check it’s a legitimate one first.
Polo and horse riding is not only enjoyed by the British aristocrats, the islanders also fell in love with horses. Racing and polo are very popular in Barbados and visitors can take riding lessons or hire horses to tour the hills, ride the beach, or trek through the sugar cane fields to see the green monkeys!
With so much to do and see in Barbados, it’s a fact you won’t want to leave.
