Barbados is one of the jewels of the Caribbean. Steeped in history, the birthplace of rum and playground of the rich and famous due to the endless white beaches and crystal blue waters. You can choose to either relax in complete privacy amongst the beautiful seascapes or have a livelier break full of festivals, cultural events and eating and drinking in Zagat rated restaurants. Barbados is a coral island, pushed out of sea by volcanic activity. On the west coast of Barbados, coral shore beaches of fine white sand stretch along a blue-green sea. Coral reefs fringe the Barbados shoreline to provide excellent snorkelling and scuba diving. For keen surfers the East Coast provides lively surf blown by the strong trade winds.
Barbados is mostly a flat coral island with excellent beaches, but there are rolling hills and many deep ridges and gullies, with an interesting distribution of flora and fauna. Within the Barbados coral core there is a vast array of caves and underground lakes, which provide an excellent supply of drinking water that is amongst the purest in the world. Geologically Barbados is unique, being actually two land masses that merged together over the years.
Barbados is a very beautiful island, with lots of art, activities, nightlife, music, history and some fantastic restaurants. However, what makes Barbados even more special, and the reason why so many visitors keep returning to the island year after year, is the people. The people of Barbados, called Bajans, are warm and friendly souls, always ready to greet you with a sincere smile. Bajans are famous for making visitors feel welcome and special, in this lovely Caribbean Island. You will quickly feel at home and be planning your return trip before you’ve left the island!

Barbados has over 3,000 hours of sunshine a year! The weather in Barbados is generally warm and sunny all year round reaching on average a high of 30°C / 86°F during the day. The North East trade winds blow steadily through the year so although there is plenty of sunshine it does not get stifling hot, nights are usually a little cooler. Rain tends to come in quick showers to help freshen things up. If you are after serious sun, then the dry season lasts from January to June.
It’s always worth packing a small umbrella for those short sharp showers that sometimes appear. Our UK customers recommend buying insect repellent when you get there as they find it works much better than ones available at home, but if you take your own Jungle Formula Tropical Strength seems to the favourite. In the UK, pharmacist chain Boots sell a little yellow ‘zapper’ or ‘clicker’. If you are bitten by a mosquito use this straight away to remove the itch immediately.
If you do want to take your own tea, as some of our customers do, then don’t wrap it in tin foil as you may be asked by security to open your case. Other than that you can buy most things out there including cheddar cheese and Dorset Cereals!
