Barbados

The history of Barbados is as colourful as its name. Translating roughly as The Bearded Ones from Portuguese, the name is variously assumed to come from the bearded fig trees in the interior, or the foam breaking against the coastline, or the bearded Carib people once endemic to the island-nation.

Whatever be the case, Barbados has many more adornments than a simple beard: soft, sandy beaches and sparkling corals that are beautiful enough to seem unreal; not to mention a hip and happening nightlife, lush greenery on the interior, and a capital that effortlessly fuses old and new.

Come to Barbados or risk missing a party for the history books!

The Barbados Experience

Barbados requires no visa if the visitor originates from the United Kingdom, U.S. or one of one-hundred and twelve other nations. In any case, access to the island is relatively hassle-free.

You should start your tour with a walk down to one of the fabled beaches; the winds and weather are usually ideal for sunbathing, snorkelling, scuba diving, and kitesurfing. The best undersea attractions are rich tapestries of coral, sunken ships to explore, and the chance to swim amongst sea turtles (all of which involve travelling offshore; be sure to book a catamaran in advance).

The island proper offers sites such as the Botanical Garden and Harrison's Cave for your perusal. The Mount Gay Rum Distillery accounts for the island's most popular export, and offers regular tours and tastings on weekdays.

No visit to the Barbados can be complete without sampling local delicacies; major draws include the flying fish (an ubiquitous national symbol that tastes incredible with Scotch Bonnet pepper sauce) and Pepperpot stew, made with pork in a spicy brown sauce. Traditional Bajan cuisine is an eclectic mix of spices and herbs with traditional British faire; it must be tasted to be believed!
