At a Glance:
- Visit the western coast, also famously known as the Platinum Coast due to 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.
