Barbados Holidays

What You Can Expect On A Holiday To Barbados

The birthplace of rum and not forgetting Rhianna, Barbados holidays have long been the Caribbean destination of choice for those who seek the finer side of life, with the stunning Platinum Coast a veritable hub for A-Listers and jet setters from around the globe. A string of high end luxury hotel resorts can be found dotted along the western coastline, named the Platinum Coast thanks to the purity of its sand.

What To See And Do On Your Barbados Holiday

Head down south and you’ll discover the livelier side of Barbados, with St Lawrence Gap leading the way with its countless calypso bars and reggae clubs. Families will love the peaceful vibe of Rockley and Maxwell and their pristine white sandy beaches. The capital of the island is Bridgetown, an historic city named as a UNESCO World Heritage Site thanks to its many monuments and landmarks. Take a wander around the Garrison Savannah and discover Bridgetown’s important naval past.

Barbados holidays can be as lively or as tranquil as you wish. Soak up the Caribbean sunshine on one of its spectacularly beautiful beaches and sip rum punches to your heart’s delight. You can also discover where your rum came from and learn all about its history and production at the Mount Gay Rum Factory. The famous Oistins Fish Fry is a must try, taking place every Friday at the charming coastal town of Oistins, this legendary event dishes up BBQ fish, traditional calypso music and a real taste of Bajan culture. Chocolate lovers simply must visit the Agapey Chocolate Factory in Barbados, and learn of the history of the Trinitario cocoa bean, used to produce a simply mouth-watering chocolate.
If you decide to book your Barbados holiday in August, you’re in for a real treat. The Barbados Crop Over Festival is the biggest event on the Bajan calendar and promises to be the party of all parties. The streets are filled with colour and calypso music and the dancing is infectious. Join the locals at this magnificent street party and soak up the true vibe of Barbados.
