A Barbados holiday is, in every way, the epitome of Carribbean paradise. With glorious powder white sands, strikingly clear blue sea and some of the most beautiful landscapes nature has to offer, it is easy to see why visitors fall in love with this wonderful little island.
As a former British colony, you can expect to see one or two familiar sights, such as the occasional red telephone box or a place which takes its name from somewhere closer to home. This dash of Britishness blended with Barbados’ well-known relaxed culture and extremely hospitable people are just some of the ingredients that will leave you feeling blissfully contented.
For a truly indulgent luxury holiday, the West coast of the island is where the most beautiful beaches and sheltered, calm waters are to be found. Renowned as the holiday destination of the jetsetters, the West coast is the glitzy part of Barbados and it’s where the majority of the lavish, first class resorts, restaurants, high end spas and exclusive boutiques are situated.
If you are more of a thrill seeker then you might prefer to head to the East coast. With this part of the island being exposed to the fierce waves of the Atlantic, it is a popular destination for surfers. It is also home to some of the best snorkelling and scuba diving in the world with coral reefs burgeoning with exotic marine life and even abandoned shipwrecks for you to explore.
