Barbados, the easternmost island in the Lesser Antilles, might take a little longer to get to than other Caribbean isles, but it's worth the trip. The relatively small island (only 21x14 miles) is packed with rich history, beautiful beaches, a lively local culture and an island-wide affinity for rum punch that will keep you swaying with the beat long after you've left. Whether it's dancing to the wee hours at the raucuous Oistins fish fry/outdoor music festival (held every Friday night), stand-up paddleboarding in front of your all-inclusive oceanside resort, watching a polo match at the local fields or hiking through the rural, mountainous east coast, it seems improbable that such a tiny island nation can pack such a heavy punch.

Barbados is a beautiful island. It's one of the safest...I traveled everywhere by the local mini-vans with the locals or my foot. The beaches are beautiful as is the Barbadian Blue water. The people are very friendly and the food was great...from the basic fish cutters to high end gourmet meals. Oh did I mention they invented Rum here?:)

Barbados is a coral island, On the West Coast of Barbados, coral shore beaches of fine white sand stretch along a blue-green sea. Coral reefs fringe the Barbados shoreline to provide excellent snorkeling and Scuba Diving. Along the East Coast a lively surf is blown briskly by the strong and constant trade winds and the waves pound against a rocky shore. A mild and pleasant tropical climate. lots of art, activities, night life, music, history and some of the best restaurants to be found anywhere. Lots of Hotels along the beaches. There are lots of things to do. A night cruise explore the Harrison caves, the undersea floral garden.

Native Bejans have a love of life that's unlike anywhere else in the Caribbean. From limin' around with a rum punch to their love of cricket, polo and other British sports, you'll never be bored on this fun loving island. Be sure to enjoy a rum punch and the jerk spices because contrary to popular belief, all island food is not created equal and this Latiin/British fusion is something that must be experienced to be believed. Just don't try to get a deal during hurricane season because the rains really don't let up and you want to enjoy the sun and fun without being cooped up in a hotel room.

Barbados is absolutely gorgeous its so sunny but when it rains its quite heavy but it never goes cold its just refreshing when it rains. The beaches are sooooo beautiful the soft sand so smooth and the water is so clean its turquoise. I suggest the best beach is browns beach.

Slip into the Barbadian way of life and relax on the beach with a cocktail in hand, watching the world go by.
You will not receive a warmer welcome than on these shores, and the level of service and facilities are amongst some of the best in the Caribbean.
If what you crave from your next holiday is more than just a relaxing beach scene, Barbados can deliver on all fronts.

Barbados is my favourate place on the planet. The sea is in a class of its own. Between my friend Linda and I we have covered most of the Carribean. The sea around Barbados beats them all. You have to have your wits about you tho, cos it can be quite a rough place.
