Barbados Travel Guide
Geographically Barbados may well be typically tropical, but if it’s a Robinson Crusoe style holiday you’re after, head to another Caribbean Island. However, if you’re looking for a paradise holiday with all mod cons you’re in good company (lots of it). Barbados has it all. Spend the day on a white sandy beach and drench yourself in brilliant sunshine, breaking off only for the odd rejuvenating dip in the warm crystal clear waters. Later you can dance under the stars to Caribbean rhythms and dine on exquisitely prepared seafood in the most romantic settings imaginable. Energetic types can take to the water with a vengeance - surfing, windsurfing, snorkelling, scuba diving, big game fishing or sailing - you name it Barbados has it. All activities also have excellent hire, retail and instructional facilities. There are miles of beautiful rolling countryside, peppered with intriguing spots like the magical Harrison's Caves and Sam Lord’s Castle. Golf is also popular, with two world-class courses and several smaller facilities on the island. Rum is virtually a religion here, so remember to call into at least one of the myriad rum shops, pubs and sports bars and sample a drop, you’ll soon realise why. Accommodation is rarely a problem, with over 200 registered hotels, guest houses, apartments, cottages & villas, and privately owned condos and apartments to choose from. Whatever you choose you are certain of a warm Barbados welcome and hospitality.
