Whether it’s beach relaxation, exhilarating water sports or inland adventure you’re looking for, Barbados has something for everyone. The sandy shores and gentle surf of the west coast provide a bathing and diving paradise, while the unspoiled east coast offers stunning vistas. Soak up the history in Bridgetown, take in a cricket match or enjoy a spot of afternoon tea at a 17th-century plantation home. The island has hotels to suit every budget and purpose, whether it’s luxury or value-for-money you desire on your Barbados holiday.
