Welcome to Barbados

The Caribbean serves up year-round sunshine, and the welcome from the locals matches the warmth of the wonderful climate – and this couldn’t be more true from a visit to the beautiful island of Barbados.

Feeling hot hot hot!

Wonderfully laid back and smaller than its neighbours, Barbados combines romance with relaxation better than any other Caribbean island. Also staying true to its British roots, afternoon tea remains a tradition, cricket is the national sport, and many districts have British names – such as Hastings, Yorkshire and Brighton.

The clear waters and paradise-like beaches are famed for attracting a celebrity crowd, however, what sets Barbados apart from its neighbours is its old Colonial charm, traditional British heritage, colourful Cajun cuisine and overall enthusiasm for welcoming visitors with warm, genuine, open hospitality. The perfect island escape, Barbados also offers exciting adventures, tradition, culture, history and stunning scenery. With its welcoming climate, rich culture and superb shorelines, Barbados is beautiful, but it’s what lies behind the surf and the sand that will capture your heart, as you embrace Bajan style relaxation, rhythm and rum!
