In many ways, Barbados is what a holiday in the Caribbean is all about. Whether you want all the edges smoothed off your days in five-star luxury, or the authentic life in beach bars and local fish fries, it’s here. Shore-wise, famously Barbados is an island of two halves.
The eastern, Atlantic coast is windswept, with dramatic breakers; while the west is sheltered and tranquil. Don’t ask us to choose our favourite. The beautiful interior is peppered with plantation houses and with distilleries producing delicious examples of the island’s most celebrated export: rum.
That’s not the only spirit on the island: Barbados is known for its energy and its fun-loving character, which makes this a really memorable place to visit.
It’s the perfect tailored Caribbean destination: delightful alone, it could equally be a springboard for a longer holiday featuring one or more other isles, such as St Lucia or Grenada. It’s a good dilemma to have.
