Barbados has much to offer its residents and guests with its idyllic year-round climate, excellent restaurants and spectacular beaches.
It might seem predictably Caribbean but if you explore a little further though you’ll be delighted by the rolling lush hills, flourishing botanical gardens, colonial plantation homes and varied cultural calendar in which jazz festivals and carnivals sit alongside sailing and cricket tournaments. The tranuil coastline is a hive of fine, coral grain beaches and warm, crystal, asure waters. The island genuinely does have something to offer for everyone.
