A while back, we dealt with how you can make the beach romantic in Barbados and what you can do on a date night in Barbados. This article will look at the various romantic island escapades you and yours can experience across the island, no matter the location or time of day.
Watching the sunset
There are few things more romantic than watching a sunset against the backdrop of the cool, calm waters of the Caribbean Sea. The Boardwalk on the south coast is an ideal place for this. Also, there is the option of lounging on the beach to watch the sunset and some ideal locations for this are Batts Rocks, Mullins Bay and Heywoods Beach.
Experience exquisite cuisines from across the island
Barbados, despite its small size has hundreds of excellent restaurants that serve a variety of cuisines from Indian, Italian, American or Thai. You can enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner for two, while experiencing the best in international cuisine. If dinner is not on your list, these restaurants also offer buffets and brunches.
Picnic in the garden
Barbados has a wonderful collection of gardens including Hunte’s Gardens and Flower Forest. Take a nice afternoon stroll with a picnic basket and enjoy the calm atmosphere and scenery. The gardens have many tropical plants from all over the world. The garden at Codrington College also offers a beautiful and tranquil setting for a picnic.
Snorkel on reefs and shipwrecks
Another major attraction in Barbados is the underwater life. With a wide array of coral reefs and shipwrecks (at certain sites) Barbados is one of the premier locations in the Caribbean for snorkelling. One of the island’s best spots to snorkel is the reefs of Carlisle Bay.
Enjoy a Boat Cruise

On the surface, it does not appear too romantic, but the caves in Barbados, especially Harrison’s Cave and Animal Flower Cave provide a nice setting for you and your loved one to experience nature. With Harrison’s Cave boasting Stalactites and Stalagmites, waterfalls and crystalline waters, and the Animal Flower Cave, the only human accessible sea cave in the island, boasting whale watching (depending on the type of the year), this exploration can be a romantic one for you and yours.
Wether beach or countryside are both, whichever you choose, it will be an exciting experience and adventure. Barbados has several organizations offering riding tours during the day or even sometimes at night. One of these such places is Ride Barbados Horseback Tours, who offer tours both on the beach and in the country.

Take a map, rent a car, and either pick up some food on the way or pack a picnic basket and spend the entire day with your partner driving around the island and taking in the sights and scenes that the island has to offer.
