The beach is a main source of pleasure for families, and what better than to spend a day at the beach and partake in the water sports. These include a wide range of activities: snorkelling, jet skiing, kayaking, and may even include swimming lessons.
Submarine tours allow kids to experience the beauty of the ocean bed and learn a bit about marine life or spend a day on the high seas on one of the catamaran cruises and then swim with the turtles. Here, your child can take a closer look and have hands-on experience with these magnificent creatures.
Water activities only exhibit a fraction of what Barbados has to offer. On shore, there are various exciting activities to get the kids’ adrenalin pumping. Bowling, go kart racing, horseback riding and mini-golf are some of these fun filled activities. Zipline, 4×4 off-road, ATV and segway tours are a few activities which may be more suitable for older children.
If a more edifying activity is what you are in search of, Barbados has numerous options which can be educational whilst entertaining. You can take the children to visit one of the numerous museums here. They range from being interactive, where you may be made to feel as though you are a part of the history, to taught, where you can listen and learn.
Families can explore wildlife and the natural beauty that is Barbados. Take a tour of the Barbados Wildlife Reserve, Welchman Hall Gully or Harrision’s Cave and see exotic animals, tropical plants and natural formations.
Should you require time away from the children, you may find a kid’s club programme where you may be offered babysitting services, with games and learning experiences. Here they have the opportunity to interact with other children and possibly make new friends.
These experiences and more await your family in Barbados.
