Barbados is one of the most charming and surprising islands in the Caribbean. With beautiful white sandy beaches, turquoise seas and a tropical climate, Barbados is a perennial favourite with holidaymakers. Accommodation options range from luxury hotels, fantastic all-inclusive family resorts and opulent private villas, to boutique b&bs and affordable self catering options.
Visitors can do as much or as little as they wish, whether it's relaxing on a beach sipping a local rum cocktail or enjoying Barbadian cuisine at Oistens Fish Market, to zip wiring through the forest or delving to the bottom of the sea by submarine, Barbados is the place to discover a vibrant culture full of spirit and life.
2010 is the year of action and soft adventure on the island and visitors are encouraged to experience all the varied sporting and active leisure activities Barbados has to offer. With numerous little known coral reefs and sunken wrecks, Barbados is a fantastic place to explore the underwater world of tropical fish and sea turtles. The action on the water surface is seemlingly limitless too. Take a trip aboard a catamaran cruise to see the island from a different perspective or choose from an array of other adventures including sailing, windsurfing, sea fishing, water-skiing and surfing. Those preferring to keep their feet on the ground, can opt for a fantastic horse ride along the stunning east coast, a 4x4 fun safari around the island or a well timed trip to watch the ICC Twenty20 this May at the spectacular Kensington Oval in Bridgetown.
