Having trouble deciding on your next holiday destination? What about enjoying a trip to Barbados, where it’s summer all year round! This Caribbean island’s white beaches and clear waters have made it a firm favourite with visitors. The lush green hills inland are dotted with beautiful colonial buildings – many of which have been turned into restaurants or hotels. Grab your scuba gear and explore the jewel-like coral reefs that ring the island, or brave the swells for a spot of unforgettable surf.
Sunbury Plantation House – Learn about the history of Barbados at this sprawling colonial house. The walls of this 300 year old mansion are built from coral (from the surrounding reefs) and ballast stones (from the English ships that exported sugar from the island). Join a tour to see the interior, still furnished in original pieces from the colonial era.
The Sandpiper – Kick off your dream holiday with a stay at this elegant beachside resort. The Sandpiper is set in the midst of a peaceful tropical garden and is fronted by a sandy beach. Accommodation here ranges from standard rooms and suites, to the luxurious Tree Top Suites, each with their own private terrace and swimming pool. Enjoy Caribbean-inspired dishes from the restaurant’s menu, or indulge in a relaxing treatment at the spa. Room rates start from £130.
Oistins – A fish fry completes the quintessential Bajan experience, so head to the town of Oistins for a Friday night knees-up with the locals. Get freshly caught and grilled fish from the little huts on the beach – chose from tuna, marlin, lobster and of course, flying fish. Top it all off with a hearty serving of macaroni pie, coleslaw, or breadfruit, and then work off the calories with a dance or stroll along the beach.
