Barbados is one of the most diverse islands you will find in the Caribbean, from the rugged coral reefs and harsh tides of the beaches of Bathsheba in the East, to the white sanded tranquil surroundings of the western beaches. The lively capital of Bridgetown in the South, with its old school colonial buildings and plantations to visit, its great restaurants and traditional Bajan hospitality, or further south to the full on nightlife of St Lawrence Gap and Oistins, to the secluded all-inclusive resorts and golfing greens to be found in the quiet and relaxing pace of the north. A climate of year round sun has kept Barbados as one of the most visited destinations in the Caribbean.
The southern and western coasts are framed by the Caribbean Sea, a much calmer sister to the Atlantic, and this is where the majority of tourism development has taken place. Barbados is blessed with stunning beaches on all coasts and there are no private beaches, so explore and enjoy!
There is a huge variety of things to see and do. If you can tear yourself away from the beach or your villa, there are world heritage sites, museums, gardens, caves, shopping, rum tours, and even zip lining.
Barbados is a diner’s delight! For a small island it packs a massive punch with regards the variety of cuisine available and pretty much any food can be found here.
From à la carte ocean front restaurants, casual beach bars, fresh street food, even the fast food is excellent.
The west coast is dotted with some fabulous fine dining options including The Cliff, Tides and Daphne’s, and check out first and second street in Holetown which has a variety of restaurants.
The south coast is no exception, albeit somewhat more casual, our favourites include Champers, Tapas and the causal Harlequin in St Lawrence gap.
Top Tip! Seafood and chicken are Barbadian staples and sourced locally, whereas most red meats would be imported.
So for a fresh, local option try out mahi mahi (also locally called ‘dolphin’), snapper, kingfish and of course the Barbadian national dish, flying fish!
