When you think about the Caribbean, one of the first places that spring to mind is usually Barbados. Pearly white beaches with warm crystal blue waters complete with cocktails, sumptuous cuisine and vibrant nightlife are just a few of the things Barbados has to offer, so if it’s the first island you think of, we can’t say we blame you!
At a Glance:
- Visit the western coast, also famously known as the Platinum Coast thanks for the purity of its sand.
- Stroll around Bridgetown, a UNESCO World Heritage city which is full of incredible historical buildings and monuments. Don’t dare leave without trying a rum punch near the harbour whilst soaking in the beautiful sunset!
- If you are a nature lover, you should visit the Andromeda Botanic Gardens and Hunte’s Garden. These luscious green oasis spots are the perfect place to see tropical plants amongst the Caribbean jungle.
- At the end of July/early August, get ready for Carnival. This is a special occasion to see local costumes, eat street food and enjoy good vibrations all around the island.
