You won’t get bored in Barbados. Many destinations have sun, sea and sand and that’s about it, but here there are many other attractions. Are you into culture and history? Visit our Unesco Heritage Site at the Garrison Savannah steeped in history alongside the Racing Track. Military buildings, St Ann’s Fort, the Drill Hall with famous Copola clock, Barbados Museum are all features in addition to George Washington House. Then head into Bridgetown and see the Parliament Museum. Perhaps a Tour of an old plantation house like Sunbury Plantation? Take a catamaran trip on the Tiami and swim with the turtles - it is a day you will never forget. Book an island tour – they cover a lot of ground and they can take you to see the dramatic contrasting coasts.
You will be quite surprised at how such a small island will have such different sides to it. Or if you want to explore on your own, hire a car and take off! Is Rum your thing? Then why not sample some of the fabulous rums of Barbados. The Foursquare Rum Factory Tour and The Mount Gay Visitors Tours are both excellent. And then of course there is the Shopping… picturesque Bridgetown with its Careenage and Admiral Nelson Statue beside Heroes Square. Then venture to Broad Street with Cave Shepherd, our big department store, Diamonds International, The Royal Shop and many more – all of these specialize in DUTY FREE. For souvenirs you have many locations islandwide at Best of Barbados with the incredible artwork of Jill Walker and her family. Ganzee is also located at Cave Shepherds outlets including the ports. Head down to Limegrove Lifestyle Centre in Holetown where the vibe is luxury. Whether it’s a Cartier watch or an original piece from House of Jaipur, this is shopping heaven for the serious shopper. Polo Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors, Always Summer, Gatsby, Heidi Klein – lots of choice for the discerning. For the less energetic shoppers there are plenty locations to relax with refreshments and food. Or simply have tea or coffee. You can even go to a movie and order Prosecco! Sitting on a beach for your entire holiday is not an option in Barbados! And we haven’t even got to the sport yet… that’s a whole new dimension.
