perfect beach holiday'
If you’re looking for the perfect beach holiday, somewhere
you can completely relax, look no further, with pristine beaches,
crystal clear water and vibrant flora, Barbados has it all. This
laid back English colony combines
beach life with great music, an exciting night scene, delicious
food and a strong sense of history and culture.
The handsome colonial buildings of the capital, Bridgetown,
date mainly from the 18th century, while the later buildings of
the suburbs stretch inland. Several of the island’s mixed
race population are descendants of the African slaves, brought over
to work the colonial sugar plantations.
Back at the beach, warm Caribbean waters are swarming
with colourful fish swimming in vibrant coral reefs. Sailing, windsurfing,
water skiing, snorkelling and scuba diving are just some of the
watersports available. Hire a car, scooter, bicycle or moke (open
air jeep) to venture further afield, and visit underwater caves,
sugar cane factories, lush tropical gardens, rum distilleries or
The island has a lively nightlife with floorshows
of limbo dancers and pulsing reggae music, a perfect accompaniment
to the Bajan cuisine of spicy seafood, tropical vegetables and fruits,
washed down with rum cocktails and fresh fruit juices. All of this
may sound too good to be true however, this is Barbados.
