Quick Guide to Barbados
If you're looking for the quintessential Caribbean holiday, few islands do better than Barbados. Particularly popular with Brits, the island's colonial history merges with a colourful modern culture, celebrating everything from cricket matches to carnivals.
But for most visitors Barbados' big draw is the beaches. You will find all the postcard Caribbean features; palm trees, pristine sands, azure blue warm waters and lush tropical scenery. Head to the prestigious Platinum Coast to see the best of the sugar sands - but be warned, Platinum also refers to the most popular credit card colour in these parts.
Barbados has a wild side too: check out the nightlife of St Lawrence Gap to see for yourself. Or the east coast - it's fully exposed to the power of the Atlantic, giving it an altogether different look and feel. In short, it's easy to see why this island attracts half a million visitors every year and will continue to do so in 2017. Have we tempted you into jetting off on a last minute break yet?
