Traveling Around Barbados

You can get to know Barbados by road or sea. Whether you choose a walking tour or a coastal trip by bus or boat, it is easy to experience the best of the island in different ways.

BARBADOS COASTAL TOUR

When you are vacationing in Barbados, an organized guided tour is a great way to explore the island. The local guides are entertaining and know a lot, which makes a tour memorable. For example, take a bus tour of the island and visit the following places and local attractions:

  • ANIMAL FLOWER CAVE:

    The cave’s name comes from sea anemones or “animal flowers”, as Barbadians call them. Spend an enjoyable time exploring the natural sea cave with its striking display of stalactites and stalagmites.

  • ST NICHOLAS ABBEY:

    Take a tour of this beautiful plantation in the northern parish of St Peter, adjacent to Cherry Hill. The tour guides recommend that you spend around 2-3 hours to get the most out of your visit. This includes seeing the great house and learning about its 350-year history. There is also a distillery and sugar mill. To make the visit even more memorable, you can tour the plantation on the St Nicholas Abbey Heritage Railway.

  • SOUP BOWL:

    This famous surf spot boasts exciting waves for thrill seekers. It attracts surfers from around the world. However, you don’t need to be part of the surfing scene to soak up the beach vibe and enjoy sunbathing or swimming.

  • Other attractions and places to go include the Globe Drive-in and Limegrove Lifestyle Centre in Holetown for shopping, bars, and restaurants. You can also explore Barbados by boat and spend leisurely hours cruising around the island. As well as taking in the rich history of the area, seize the opportunity to swim and snorkel. Also, you might get lucky and see some turtles.

BARBADOS BEACHES TO VISIT ON VACATION

The sun (nearly) always shines on Barbados, so you can make the most of the outdoors. Blue skies, clear waters and pristine sand are the perfect backdrop to your vacation. Among the best Barbados West Coast Beaches are:

  • GIBBS BEACH:

    It is home to our rental villa, Salt Life. This is one of the more tranquil beaches on the island. It has white sand and sea that sparkles like sapphire jewelry.

  • HOLETOWN BEACH:

    Take a relaxing walk along the Barbados West Coast Boardwalk and discover this gorgeous tropical beach with chic restaurants and bars nearby. Stunning sunsets often complete a great day out, too.

  • BATTS ROCK BEACH:

    If you are staying in our Barbados villa rental in St James, hop on the bus to this beach. It is the perfect spot for snorkeling and swimming. You could also book a table at Le Cabane restaurant with its stunning ocean view.

Maximize your beach time by trying out different watersports and activities. For example, you can enjoy scuba diving, jet skis, water-skiing, and swimming with turtles. Snorkeling in Barbados is also a worthwhile experience. You will discover another world under the ocean where colorful, tropical fish and unique coral formations create a vibrant scene.

Eat and Drink in Barbados

Enjoy all the flavors of Barbados at local restaurants. Cou cou, fried flying fish, codfish cakes, and macaroni pie are some favorite dishes of the day. The range of delicious food is a celebration of the fresh ingredients, locally caught fish, vibrant dishes, and rich desserts. And all these flavors and colors blend beautifully to create a varied selection of tasty dishes.

If you want to experience gourmet food with a view, book a table at The Cliff restaurant in St James. And if you time it right, you can sip cocktails on the terrace and watch the sun go down.

For more relaxed mealtimes, pop into one of the many cafes and bars along the west coast of the island. For example, Cafe Bar Carizma in Holetown is popular. Its sister cafe in The Chattel Village specializes in desserts – the perfect place if you have a sweet tooth.

You can also enjoy the local cuisine in Speightstown. Ask the locals for recommendations. They’ll point you in the direction of the best Caribbean food in town. Plenty of street food vendors serve up local delicacies at affordable prices, too.

The rum shop scene is another highlight. These relaxed bars are perfect for afternoon or evening socializing. The world-famous rum of Barbados has been lovingly perfected over the centuries to produce a flavorful (and strong!) spirit. The rum industry on the island is thriving and home to different distilleries, including Mount Gay Rum Factory. If you want to learn more about the secrets of rum-making, an organized tour is a good idea
