Barbados is a stunning tropical island in the Caribbean Sea! If you dream of soft, white, sandy beaches, sports activities on the water, pleasant relaxation and parties with lots of rum and calypso music - you should go to Barbados. Barbados is a true tropical dream destination. It is not hard to fall into the sleepy rhythm - a nap in the hammock, walking barefoot in the sand, snorkelling before eating grilled seafood. Barbados' tropical climate gives the island the perfect touch with lots of beautiful flowers that explode in a rainbow of colours.
Best of Barbados
Barbados is the most eastern of the Caribbean islands and faces the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. The two meet, on the island's south coast where a lot of nice small hotels and surfers greet you. The island is quite popular with surfers due to amazing waves. Barbados belongs to the island group of the Lesser Antilles and originally emerged as a volcanic island.
Make sure you go to the west coast of Barbados, where there are plenty of wonderful sandy beaches and coral reefs, while the east coast has more dramatic waves. No doubt that the inviting sand beaches are the island's absolute main attraction, not least those with good reefs and snorkelling close to shore. Try for example Carlisle Bay, here you will find lots of beautiful fish and coral.
Weather in Barbados
No matter what time of year you travel to Barbados, you are reasonably sure to get a lot of sun and heat. The best time of year is between December and May when the weather is a little cooler and more comfortable - and with less risk of tropical rain.
Travel around Barbados
The most obvious way to explore Barbados is by bus. It costs next to nothing and is fun and different - you may experience that the bus driver just need a little detour to deliver something to a friend, or that he stops at a roadside kiosk to buy something to drink.
