The Best Bajan Instagram Accounts to Follow to Take You Back to Your Holiday
After visiting our island paradise here in Barbados, it’s fairly common to be struck down with a serious case of the holiday blues which might take some time to recover from.
Gone are the azure skies, warm seas and white sandy beaches, to be replaced by the grey skies of Blighty and seemingly incessant rain, even during summer. No longer can you wander down for a swim in the ocean before breakfast (unless you want to catch hypothermia) and enjoy some freshly caught Caribbean seafood, but instead you’re back at your desk, trying to find motivation to hit the gym.
With that in mind, we’ve found some of the best Bajan Instagram accounts to follow to take you back on your holiday and beat those post-vacation blues.
As the official tourism board of the island, it’s little surprise that this account is full of stunning photographs and videos from across the island. From snaps of the clear blue sea to a montage of the Bajan carnival spirit, this will make you feel right at home after your trip to Barbados.

This account focuses on the beauty of the island through the eyes of its landscapes and the people who call it home.
