‘Barbados’ the very name is rich and musical, and the sounds of Calypso were born here. Steeped in golden rum and the most incredible beaches, it is said the sands turn pink at sunset. A sophisticated sun, sea and sand holiday for the rich and famous, this coral island has oodles of character and contrast - from the glamorous Platinum Coast to the local warmth of a fish-fry on the beach.
There is a noticeable laid back feel to this island and each coast has a charm of its own. Live the high life with some of the best duty free shopping, dine at award winning restaurants, plunge into the array of water sports, or just relax and let go at some of the most amazing resorts imaginable.
Live the dream...
Soak up the colours and movement of the UNESCO-listed capital of Bridgetown and be dazzled by the architecture of Jacobean, Georgian and Victorian buildings beside the vibrant hues of the traditional wooden chattel houses. Tune into the captivating Bajan culture derived from a blend of West African, British and Indian roots.
On the trendy west coast choose from the island’s most lavish resorts, chic hotels and unbelievably clear waters edged with palm trees. Gain a flavour of the lives of the super wealthy with a glimpse of their exclusive private mansions hidden in secret pockets around the coast.
The trade winds which carried the spice ships fan the south coast which makes it the best spot for kite surfing and wind surfing in places aptly described as Long Beach, Silver Rock and Silver Sands.
And wherever you go on the island, be sure to try sunshine and mellow vibes in a glass with a native rum cocktail or two.
