Holiday Deals to Barbados

Holiday deals to Barbados deliver plenty of choice and guaranteed good times. To the west of the island, the Platinum Coast lures holidaymakers with luxury resorts, big-name hotels and exclusive dining – all backed-up by palm-fringed beaches and aquamarine seas. The rugged east is different, offering up Atlantic breakers, wild beauty and superb surfing. And the south is a seductive mixture of the two, home to beautiful bays, great windsurfing and jumping nightlife.

Barbados has certain Englishness to it; it’s a place where afternoon tea remains a time-honoured institution, and the national game is cricket. There are superb Jacobean mansions and colonial-style houses to visit, a reminder of the days when the British owned sugar plantations here, and you can even get your photo taken with Lord Nelson. His statue retains pride of place in Heroes Square in Bridgetown, the island’s UNESCO-protected capital.

But Barbados is also equally, uniquely Bajan, and has a carefree, friendly style typical of the locals. Why settle for a cup of tea, after all, when you could be sipping a rum cocktail? Barbados has been producing its own lip-smacking version of the drink for over three centuries, and there are rum shops all over the island, while rum-based punches and cocktails are a staple in every bar and restaurant. Add some local calypso or reggae music, and you’ve got an instant party.

With so much on offer, holiday deals to Barbados are all about variety. You can spend lazy days by the beach simply stretched out on the sand with a book and a bottle of tanning lotion. Or you can get more active by taking a boat trip, learning to kite surf, or hiking between surf-blown bays. Then there’s Bridgetown to explore, lush gardens to discover and duty-free shopping to be done. Just lay off the rum sufficiently so you can make the most of it all!
