Destination Information for Barbados
The appeal of Barbados as a holiday destination is reflected by the fact that 39% of visitors return to the country, with white sand beaches and a desirable climate contributing factors to this figure. Its own unique culture gives the island a vibrant feel, whether this be the rum shops selling traditional food and drinks, or Caribbean folk songs played on the steel pans.
The sea is tranquil in the west and livelier in the south, meaning there is something on offer for everyone who visits. For those who do not want to partake in snorkelling or diving, there are a plethora of other options. Alternative aquamarine activities involve taking a voyage on the 48-seater Atlantis III Submarine and enjoying the colourful reef and rare species of fish. Another aesthetic delight which can be enjoyed is Hunte’s Gardens, which exhibits an array of botanical wonders.
