An irresistible combination of the exotic and the familiar, Barbados’ natural beauty and strong colonial connections have made it a popular choice for travellers; often drawn by its warmth, colour, vibrancy and rich cultural heritage with a contrasting divide.

On the south and east coasts expect dramatic cliffs, crashing waves and unspoilt ocean views. To the north and west, a more tranquil feel pervades, with balmy waters, immaculate beaches, world-renowned hotels and exquisite restaurants. Discover a noticeable homage to the days of the British Commonwealth, both architecturally and in the time-honoured customary traditions, such as afternoon tea, cricket, polo matches and horse racing at the Garrison Savannah. Enjoy the wonder of the diverse and beautiful seascape, where turtles bob along the waves and schools of colourful fish flit in the lagoon. On land, green monkeys thrive in the Wildlife Reserve and botanical gardens offer tropical sights, sounds and smells. Absorb the grace and elegance of historic plantation houses, play golf on championship courses, try horse riding, deep sea fishing or board the Atlantis submarine. Dine on the freshest local seafood washed down with a locally brewed Banks beer or Mount Gay rum cocktail.
