Barbados

The place to be seen and a firm favourite Caribbean Island.

Undoubtedly the nation’s favourite Caribbean Island. With its aquamarine waters, sugar-white sands, calypso rhythms and ultra-laid back atmosphere it keeps us Brits returning year after year or maybe it is the fact the sun always shines on Barbados.

A tale of two sides, the platinum west coast is graceful and cosmopolitan and home to some of the world’s most exquisite hotels, finest golf courses, excellent shopping boutiques and distinguished restaurants. The east coast is wild with windswept palms and desolate yellow sands and is a surfer’s paradise.

Barbados has a wide selection of nightlife and restaurants to choose from along with a host of activities for the sports enthusiast from golf to horse racing. It’s hard to find fault in Barbados.

Catamaran Cruises

What better way to experience the crystal clear blue waters of the Caribbean around the shores of Barbados than on board a catamaran. There are many companies on the island that can offer this fantastic opportunity. Many of these catamarans serve delicious local cuisine whilst on board to complete the experience. You may also have the chance to snorkel from the vessel.

Barbados Museum and Historical Society

First established in 1933, The Barbados Museum houses in the region of a half a million artefacts and is located in a former British Military Prison. Some of the items presented include a natural history display of the coral structure of Barbados and a collection of rare historical maps.

Beaches

Barbados offers a fantastic array of glorious beaches. The west coast faces the Caribbean, so the soft sandy beaches on that side experience calmer seas. Along the east coast, the Atlantic Ocean causes it to be a bit windier, so it’s perfect for wind surfing and surfing. Many surfers come from all over the world. Some of the top beaches include Accra Beach, Mullins Beach and Worthing Beach.
