The illustrious island never fails to enchant visitors with its sheer natural beauty, boasting no less than 70 miles of pristine palm tree-fringed beaches with soft white sands and mind-blowingly clear waters. Of course, the coastal treasures are joined by a rich heritage and cultural charm - from the UNESCO-listed Garrison (the largest of the British colonies in the 18th and 19th centuries) to the world-famous Mount Gay Rum distillery. With the promise of warm tropical weather, safe swimmable waters, and activities for all ages to enjoy, Barbados is (justifiably) a firm favourite with families, whilst the dreamy seascapes are also ideal for a romantic getaway. Whoever you are and whenever you visit, look forward to culinary discovery, world-class wellness and some of the planet's most coveted luxury hotels.

Barbados for adventurers - While most of us would be content to simply exist in this tropical paradise, those seeking adventure can head outside and make the most of everything this beautiful island has to offer! Spend your days in paradise learning to surf the turquoise waters, grab your log book and head to the depths for some wreck diving, or lose yourself amongst stalactites and stalagmites at the magnificent Harrison's Cave.
Barbados for nature - An unspoilt haven for some of earth's most precious creatures and landscapes, Barbados is the perfect destination for those looking to reconnect with nature. Take the time to explore the island and discover a fascinating array of flora and fauna, thriving wildlife and unforgettable nature experiences that you won't find anywhere else. Swim with the magnificent leatherback and hawksbill turtles, head to the wild and wonderful East Coast for brilliant walks and beachcombing, immerse yourself in the sweet aromas of beautiful Caribbean botanical gardens or try and spot Green Monkeys as they search for snacks.
Barbados for history buffs - The history and culture of Barbados is unique and no place highlights this more than the thriving capital, Bridgetown. With deep historical roots that Barbadians are proud to showcase, Bridgetown and its Garrison boast a treasure chest of historical sites and architectural charms and are proudly on the UNESCO World Heritage List, with around 115 listed buildings representing a worthy collection of history, art, vernacular architecture and a very distinguished era of military colonial history.
