Barbados offers a cross-section of Caribbean island life, from elegant restaurants and exclusive resorts to wild, windswept beaches and local fish fries. One of the Caribbean’s most enduring and well-established destinations, it’s a place our specialists travel to regularly. Using this up-to-date first-hand knowledge, they’ll advise you on how to get the best from you Barbados vacation, whether you’d like to find the best waters for swimming alongside turtles or take a walking tour of the capital, Bridgetown.
Along the island’s west coast, you’ll find long curves of sand interspersed with palm-shaded bars and luxurious resorts. The east coast runs at a slower pace, with wild Atlantic rollers frothing onto a rugged, undeveloped shoreline. Inland are rum distilleries, plantation houses and botanical gardens that flicker with butterflies and hummingbirds. And, with good connections across the Caribbean, Barbados is an ideal starting point for a wider island-hopping vacation that could include a private-island stay in the Grenadines or time exploring Antigua’s heritage.
