About Barbados

Independent Barbados is part of the Lesser Antilles, lying to the east of the Windward Islands and is one of the most popular destinations for Caribbean beach holidays.

Barbados is a predominantly flat island, is fringed with plenty of coral reefs and enjoys a fairly temperate climate. Some of the best beaches in the Caribbean, a rich cultural traditional and excellent diving and water sports mean a Barbados holiday offers a little of something for everyone.

Bridgetown, the capital has great shopping and St Lawrence Gap offer bars, restaurants and nightclubs. Other major tourist areas on Barbados include Holetown and Speightstown on the west coast, and Oistins on the south coast.
