                          Travel Guide, Photos and tips for exploring Barbados



 Barbados is the eastern most island on the Caribbean island chain nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea. The 21 mile long island has a population of around 270,000 people but is rich in culture, history, and beauty.

 The weather in Barbados is beautiful all year round with temperatures in the upper 80's during the summer and falling to an enjoyable average of 75 in the winter months. Along with the weather, Barbados has countless other perfection's such as its white beaches, tropical gardens, and exquisite limestone hills.

 Barbados original inhabitants were Arawaks around AD 1200 which were driven off by Caribs who later abandoned the island. By the time the English discovered the island in 1625, it was uninhabited. Within two years, the English settlers had a booming sugarcane crop which caused landowners to import African slaves. Even after the abolition of slavery in 1834, the sugar industry continued to prosper. After many years of social unrest, England granted Barbados their request to become an independent nation in 1966.

 Barbados is still home to a bustling sugar industry but now also relies heavily on tourism. For visitors of Barbados there are endless island activities suitable for any age or interest. Take in a little history by visiting the Barbados Museum, Bridgetown Synagogue, and Farley Hill, a former plantation with views of the Atlantic coastline.

 Enjoy the perfect weather by lounging on one of 60 Barbados beaches. Having trouble deciding where to go? Crane Beach has been consistently known as one of the top 10 beaches in the world. Barbados boasts over 3000 hours of annual sunshine so there will be no shortage of rays no matter what the activity.

 Nature's beauties are also abundant on Barbados which is home to the Baobab Tree brought from Africa in 1738. There are also a number of wildlife reserves and coastal pathways for a nature lover to explore.


 With 70 miles of coastline, there are bound to be a plethora of ocean activities. Discover marine life by snorkeling and scuba diving in coral reefs and sunken ships. Sign up for a submarine tour, fish, dive, parasail, boat or surf in the turquoise waters.

After a day in the Barbados sun, enjoy a bustling nightlife with high-end shopping, succulent island cuisine, and several late night hot spots radiating music and a lively atmosphere.
