If you're after a long-haul paradise, Holidays to Barbados are an idyllic slice of beach heaven - and boast some of the best hotels in the Caribbean. From grand beachfront resorts to all inclusive hotels and family-friendly accommodations, Barbados holidays offer ultimate R&R. Boasting a mixture of tropical beaches, rugged plantations, lively resorts and colonial towns, this exotic destination is the perfect escape whether you want a faraway summer fling or a dose of winter sun.
Stir in a splash of rum punch, the sounds of reggae music, a cigar factory or two and you've got cool Caribbean vibes locked down. Beach lovers will be in for a treat when visiting the famous Platinum Coast, where sweeping blonde beaches are fringed by tall palm trees and calm turquoise waters. Go kayaking, windsurfing or hop on a catamaran cruise around this well-established holiday isle - one of the best ways to see the island in all its beauty. Barbados holidays have a wide variety of things to see and do, whether you want to explore the secluded caves in northern resort St Lucy, visit the iconic Mount Gay Rum Factory, or soak up the culture in the UNESCO-listed capital of Bridgetown for a glimpse of Bajan history.
Indulge in the local cuisine and join an open-air BBQ at Oistins Fish Fry, where you can sample some Bajan rum punch on the beach, or head to the party hotspot St Lawrence Gap, home to upbeat rum shacks and reggae bar. Swim with turtles, ride a jeep safari through forests and sugarcane fields, snorkel, scuba and live it up Barbados style – this Caribbean sun-soaked gem awaits.
