Of course, there isn’t just one reason Barbados is so popular – there are hundreds. The immaculate beaches, the luxurious beachfront retreats, the championship golf courses, the nightlife, the stunning scenery, the food at Oistins Fish Fry…
Our expert consultants can recommend hundreds of wonderful places to eat scattered around the coastline of Barbados, all serving their own excellent versions of the famous Bajan cuisine. One particular favourite is Oistins, where locals and visitors alike come to enjoy tuna, swordfish, marlin or mahi-mahi grilled on the spot, fresh from the sea. You could go on a gastronomic tour of the glamorous West Coast alone.
Barbados also offers endless opportunities for relaxation. Driving around the rugged coast will introduce you to many of them. You’ll find places where you can swim and snorkel with turtles, and championship golf courses where you’ll be torn between concentrating on putting or admiring the sparkling sea views.
On the East Coast, you can capture all the jaw-dropping scenery around Bathsheba. And then there are grand plantation houses and natural wonders like the Barbados Wildlife Reserve, Chancery Lane Swamp and Harrison’s Cave – a great cavern full of thundering waterfalls, sparkling cascades and brooding pools.
Take our specialists advice: alternate your days between touring and the beach, and save your evenings for the sizzling Bajan nightlife.
