A lushly beautiful island with a winning mix of history, culture and charm, Barbados has plenty to offer even the most discerning of visitors. From the glamorous resorts, fine dining and stylish bars of the popular west coast – long a favourite destination of the rich and famous – to the lively nightlife and fabulous surfing opportunities in the south, this is a multifaceted island that’s guaranteed to delight.
Soak up the sun on dazzling white-sand beaches; savour the flavoursome riches of Barbadian cuisine; or explore the verdant landscape, hidden caves and historic plantations of the hilly interior – your holiday in Barbados can be as active or relaxing as you desire. For those looking to get away from it all, the largely undeveloped east coast is a windswept landscape just waiting to be discovered; and for those who enjoy reassuring touches of home, Barbados still strongly reflects its British heritage, with cricket greens, afternoon tea and driving on the left all the norm.
