Barbados Holidays


Synonymous with blissful beaches, elegant hotels, acclaimed restaurants and lively nightlife, it's little wonder that holidays in Barbados hold an enduring appeal.

Steeped in British culture but with a Caribbean twist, life on Barbados is both familiar and foreign, as high tea and cricket mingle with rum and calypso beats.

Accommodation can be found on either the sheltered west coast – ideal for swimming and snorkelling – or the breezy southern coast which is superb for surfing and savouring the nightlife at St Lawrence Gap.

For a different perspective, the secluded east coast offers a glimpse of a wild, yet beautiful area with windswept seas and spectacular vistas.

    Swimming with sea turtles off the west coast of Barbados is an amazing experience. It is possible to rent a snorkel & fins and simply swim out from the beach. Just ask a local for the best places to see them.
