Why Come to Barbados

Why Come to Barbados?

It is no secret that the Caribbean is one of the hottest and attrac­tive hol­i­day des­ti­na­tions. Each Caribbean island has their own set of attrac­tions to entice vis­i­tors but we choose Bar­ba­dos as the #1 Caribbean des­ti­na­tion. Why? Because it is the ideal trop­i­cal par­adise. But, don’t take our word for it:

v The Weather

Bar­ba­dos is vir­tu­ally sunny all year round except through­out the Hur­ri­cane sea­son which runs from June to Novem­ber. Even then how­ever, it is mostly sunny and windy and is the ideal par­adise escape from cold and frigid weather. Tem­per­a­tures are often between 24o C and 30o C and the amaz­ing, pic­turesque sun­sets will leave you breathless.

v The Beaches

The island has a wide array of beaches all white and sandy. For those who wish to catch some waves on their stay, the beaches on the south coast are ideal for surf­ing while the west coast beaches are ideal for relax­ing and sun­bathing. Also, most beaches in Bar­ba­dos offer water sport activ­i­ties for those look­ing for more adven­tur­ous activ­i­ties to do while on the beach.

v The Activ­i­ties

From snorkelling dur­ing the day, to par­ty­ing in the Gap at night, there is no short­age of activ­i­ties to do in Bar­ba­dos. The island doesn’t just cater to per­sons look­ing to enjoy the nightly fes­tiv­i­ties but has a wide range of day activ­i­ties to enjoy. Cave explor­ing, sight­see­ing, glass bot­tom boat expe­ri­ences, water sports, horse­back rid­ing, sip­ping and sam­pling the best rum in the world; you name it, Bar­ba­dos has it.

v The Cul­ture

This can tie in with the activ­i­ties as many of the sight­see­ing tours and other vis­its to his­tor­i­cal sites will expose you to the past and present cul­ture and his­tory of the island. But the main cul­tural attrac­tion is our Crop Over Fes­ti­val held dur­ing the sum­mer. Enjoy the bands, the music and the par­ties. It is a true explo­sion of the island’s cul­ture and a huge attrac­tion for many trav­ellers to the island.

v Des­ti­na­tion Weddings

With des­ti­na­tion wed­dings becom­ing increas­ingly pop­u­lar, why not choose Bar­ba­dos for yours? Imag­ine dip­ping your feet in the cool white sandy beaches and say­ing I do to the one you love sur­rounded by an amaz­ing trop­i­cal atmos­phere and your close friends and fam­ily. Or imag­ine get­ting mar­ried on Bar­ba­dos’ open waters. How­ever you choose to get mar­ried, Bar­ba­dos is ideal for des­ti­na­tion wed­dings espe­cially due to the wide vari­ety of high end hotels where you and your guests can enjoy your stay, some of which offer wed­ding pack­ages com­plete with your very own pro­fes­sional wed­ding planner.

v Hon­ey­moon Destination

Whether or not you choose to get mar­ried in Bar­ba­dos, it is also a fab­u­lous des­ti­na­tion for a hon­ey­moon: the per­fect trop­i­cal escape. Calm eaters, end­less white sandy beaches, rugged cliffs, big waves, beau­ti­ful scenery and loads of activ­i­ties to do for newlyweds.

v The Food

Bar­ba­dos has many restau­rants all serv­ing a vari­ety of cui­sine to suit any taste, offer­ing you the culi­nary expe­ri­ences of your life­time. Most of these are located on the west and the south coast, the main tourist hubs on the island. Enjoy beach­front and à la carte din­ing, indoor din­ing and even din­ing sur­round­ing by music and enter­tain­ment. Also, the street food in Bar­ba­dos, espe­cially in Oistins, is also a good bet if you are look­ing for some­thing a bit more casual.

v The Hotels

From homey vil­las to lux­u­ri­ous 4 and 5 star hotels, Bar­ba­dos has it all. When choos­ing where to stay there is no short­age of choices. Most offer all-​inclusive pack­ages, and your stay will be com­plete with friendly staff ready to meet your every need.

Here is a first timer’s take on Barbados:

We had an amaz­ing time on our first trip to Bar­ba­dos! We stayed at the Mar­riott and spent most of our beach time at the Coconut Court Beach. We ate din­ner at Cham­pers (twice!), the new Ital­ian restau­rant Buzo (twice!), Tapas, Blakey’s, Har­le­quin, Naru, and Café Sol. We had lunch at Sand Dunes, Chefette, Bliss Café, and most days on our beach chairs from the Coconut Court restau­rant :) We vis­ited Mount Gay Rum and St Nicholas Abbey, tried surf­ing for the first time, rode the Num­ber 11 mini­van buses… :)Amethyst2421 from TripAdvisor

There­fore, when choos­ing a loca­tion for a hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion, it is dif­fi­cult to look too far beyond Bar­ba­dos not only for its pris­tine, trop­i­cal atmos­phere and white sandy beaches but because it is be the ideal escape from every­day life, and a home away from home all in one.
