Where To Go On Holiday In Barbados
Its capital Bridgetown is the only city in the country, and is home to a multitude of cultural and historical attractions including the Barbados Museum which unravels the history of the country. Other attractions include the Mount Gay Rum Distillery where you can take a tour and enter a cocktail making competition, the magnificent Garrison area of the city and the race course.
As you would expect Barbados has plenty of stunning beaches for you to enjoy, and you can even take diving lessons to explore the underworld of Carlisle Bay where many relics can be found. Water sports enthusiasts should head to the south of the country where surfing, wind surfing or kite surfing are all possible. For seafood enthusiasts head to Oistins where fish comes in off the boats and is cooked straight away by the beach.
In the Central Eastern area of the country is Harrison's Cave, a spectacular large crystallized limestone cavern and the historical Gun Hill Signal Station, both well worth a visit. The parish of Saint Joseph sports two botanic gardens, namely the attractive Andromeda Gardens and the Flower Forest.
The west of the country is home to Holetown where shopaholics can get their hit in the Limegrove Mall and revellers can enjoy The Holetown Festival’s parades, dances, games, and street fairs. Heading north, the parish of Saint Peter is home to the tranquil Barbados Wildlife Reserve where Green Monkey’s, Tortoises and Cuban Rock Iguanas all roam freely.
On any itinary for a stay in Barbados is a day at The Crane beach, widely regarded as one of the most stunning beaches on the island, and for some the world.
