You can’t go far wrong with a Caribbean holiday: the ultimate sun, sea and sand package. And here on Barbados, one of the most developed of the Caribbean islands, you can pair that desert-island paradise with some added luxury comforts, exceptional food, activities and a fascinating history of the island’s colonial past.
Holidaymakers from across the world flock to Barbados’ sunny shores, and its beaches really are worth the trip. Postcard perfect, the sands really are that white, the seas really are that blue; and you have 92km of them to choose from!
Inland, Barbados is a lush landscape with vast plantation homes, giving lights to its colonial past. You don’t need to be a history buff to appreciate the museums documenting its history, or the tours of the plantations. The countryside is also a haven for hikers and stunning golf courses have become commonplace.
Barbados’ season is split into two: simply, wet- June to November- and dry- December to May. Whatever time of year, the temperature is still likely to peak in the low 30s and the ever-present light breeze keeps the heat from ever getting too stifling.
For the definitive dream holiday getaway, few places can top Barbados. It won’t take you long to adopt the ‘no worries’ attitude and adjust to ‘island time’…it’s adjusting back that’s the issue!
