Barbados

In this section

For tropical climates, fantastic beaches and great Barbadian hospitality.

Only 8-and-a-half hours direct flight from the UK, Barbados welcomes everyone from honeymooners to families.

A refreshing trade wind makes the year round temperatures of 30 degrees delightful. Cool off with a fantastic range of water sports along the south coast, which boasts some great waves perfect for surfing.

Hire a car and take yourselves to the wild east coast or take a catamaran trip and anchor off shore, where you can go snorkelling with the turtles – an amazing experience for all the family.  

Barbados is also known for having some of the best designer shopping in the Caribbean, and if you are looking to party the night away, visit Harbour Lights open air nightclub in St Michael with live music, barbecues and entertainment.
