Barbados

Barbados flights take around nine hours from the UK and arrive in Bridgetown. Flights to Barbados land on an island which has a strong British history and influence; more so than any other Caribbean island.With a busy capital city, Bridgetown, which is situated in Carlisle Bay and which offers a variety of architectural points of interest (as well as rum shops) and clusters of smaller, quaint towns, each with excellent beaches, along its south west coast, Barbados provides a range of amenities and entertainments. There is a museum and a wildlife reserve, the Sunbury Plantation House, and the traditional Bajan village of Tyrol Cot Heritage Village.  Keen walkers might want to explore Welchman Hall Gully, a ravine with thick woods and nearly 200 species of tropical plants, but most visitors to Barbados will probably wish only to enjoy the fantastic weather and the glorious beaches.
 
 
Feeling lively? The south of the island has buzzing nightlife, with a multitude of restaurants, bars and entertainment options. The west coast boasts the island’s classic white sand beaches framed by tropical fronds. Watching a game of cricket – be it Test visitors at the Kensington Oval in the capital city Bridgetown, or a local village game on a rough patch of grass – is always a delight. And wherever you go, the warmth of the local people is bound to be an abiding memory for years to come.
 
 
With a rugged eastern coast that is pounded by the rolling breakers of the Atlantic and a western coast that is lapped by the gentle waves of the Caribbean Sea, Barbados has a beach for everyone. Just 21 miles long and 14 miles wide, Barbados retains a distinctive West Indian Culture; rich in arts, theatre, music and nightlife. The capital city of Bridgetown offers great shopping, art galleries and theatres. The island has a number of sites of historical, architectural and natural interest and it is these that make Barbados unique and your time here something special.
