Enjoying the warm azure waters as the day breaks before heading for waffles and fresh passionfruit juice at one of the beachside cafes. But aside from the stunning natural beauty, the island has a whole host of delights to offer. Barbados is one of the friendliest, fun-loving islands in the world and you’re to make a friend or two here. The locals are immensely proud of their island and for good reason, too. With luxurious hotels to please even the fussiest, the many resorts make the perfect setting for a relaxing and pampering holiday. The island is known as the birthplace of rum and it’s lobster season all year round – so it’s safe to say your taste buds are in for a treat.
Enjoy lazy days with bottomless rum punch at Crane beach, one of the most beautiful beaches along the coast or treat yourself with a spot of designer duty-free shopping. Barbados is renowned around the world for its nightlife and love of partying, so there’ll never be a dull moment.
If you enjoy an active lifestyle you are still in the right place as the lively south coast is perfect for water sports.
