There is so much to love about Barbados, so it’s no wonder why it’s one of the most popular islands for the British. Although it’s known as a playground for the rich and famous, with Cliff Richard, Simon Cowell, Philip Green, Peter Jones and others associated with the island, it can also be a great value option, especially during the summer months for families.
For foodies, Barbados has something for everyone. From the very smart set on the water’s edge to something more authentically Bagan you know you’re going to have an amazing experience. Oistins Fish Fry on a Friday is a must, serving up the catch of the day.
The west coast is where it’s at on Barbados with all the big name hotels – Sandy Lane, Coral Reef Club, The Sandpiper, Colony Club, Crystal Cove and more… However, there are now some great options on the south coast, where the sea can be a little more unpredictable – the new and trendy O2, or the excellent value Sugar Bay.
BEST TIME TO VISIT
Barbados is an all year destination thanks to its position outside of the hurricane belt, although peak season is between Christmas and Easter.
Around 8 hours from the UK
A great introduction to the Caribbean, with a vibrant community outside the hotels. Great for foodies, beach lovers, and golfers.
HOW TO GET THERE
There are daily flights from London, both from Heathrow and Gatwick – with additional flights from Manchester during the busy winter season.
