Home to some of the most welcoming people in the Caribbean, Barbados is sure to make you smile.
A tiny island in the east Caribbean, Barbados is a truly diverse destination. At only 21 miles long and 14 miles wide, you can explore all this island has to offer during your stay. Calm waters lead to tropical palm trees in all-white-sand beaches, making Barbados perfect for relaxation. Rum is not just the national drink, it’s a way of life in these parts. Visit the Mount Gay Rum Distillery to initiate yourself into the ritual. Experience exhilarating nightlife and festival fever at Crop Over Festival, which brings several visitors to the island. The influence of British, West African, and Caribbean heritage is evident everywhere on the island—from the charming capital of Bridgetown to the serene peninsula of Needham’s Point. Discover unique historical landmarks, including two Jacobean mansions and the Morgan Lewis Windmill, the only intact sugar mill on the island. Barbados’ shoreline offers tranquility and excitement. There are scuba diving, snorkeling, and sunbathing spots galore. Head down to the depths in a chartered submarine, and explore coral gardens and sunken ships. Natural wonders abound. Harrison’s Cave with its crystallized limestone caverns and speleothems is a sight not to be missed. Bustling Bridgetown is filled with the sights and sounds of local culture – ideal for a day of sightseeing, dining, and shopping.
