Island Escapades: Romance in Barbados

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

Cave Explor­ing

Horse­back Rid­ing
