Barbados Laid-back luxury

Fly from Cardiff to Barbados with a one stop connection

The distinctive white sands that stretch throughout Barbados are what many imagine when this Caribbean island is mentioned. Of course, these phenomenal beaches are unmissable, but this is just the beginning of the beauty in Barbados.

Barbados was born from volcanic activity and is made up of two land masses that have merged together, creating a unique and fascinating experience. This creation has influenced the entire island and adventurers will uncover caves and underground lakes amongst coral shores. Aside from its natural beauty, Barbados holds a fascinating history, which can be seen at various UNESCO World Heritage sites and discovered by talking to the sociable locals.

Exceptional scenery and a humbling history, Barbados is a remarkable escape that will leave a lasting impression.

  1. Talk to the locals. People that live in Barbados are famously friendly and will be more than happy to talk to tourists and make sure that you see the best of the island.
  2. Uncover Barbados. Head for the Barbados National Trust and they will show you where you can find some of the island’s landmarks. They also have information on the local plantation houses and sugar mills.
  3. Find a festival. The island has a wonderful culture and this can be seen at one of their many festivals. Time your trip to coincide with the annual carnival in July and August or the Food & Wine and Rum Festival in the autumn. 
  4.  Go underground. On the surface, Barbados is beautiful, and there is even more to discover underground by travelling on a solar-powered tram through the tunnels in Harrison’s Cave! 
  5.  Grab a snorkel. If you like exploring underwater, Barbados is a real treat as it is surrounded by coral reefs that can be experienced via snorkelling or diving.

 

Take the ‘reggae bus’ into Bridgetown for a day of culture and history and don’t forget to go into Woolworth’s for a step back in time.
