So you're going to Barbados?
You’ve all seen the amazing beach shots of Barbados, with its white sandy beaches and crystal clear, warm turquoise waters. Whether its scuba diving, surfing, relaxing on the beach or dancing the night away there’s something for everyone to enjoy! Previously a British colony Barbados recently cut its ties with England to become a Republic and whilst we were there they were celebrating their 55th Independence Day.
Barbados was the first stop on our Caribbean travels where we spent 2 weeks exploring. From the capital Bridgetown, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with its colourful buildings and lively nightlife to the lonely and rugged East Coast, this island offers endless beauty. Not to mention how friendly everyone is!
High season in Barbados is from February through to April where the weather is super sunny and hot. These months tend to be the busiest for tourists with the highest prices. If you want to miss the crowds but still enjoy the sun, the best months to go are November through to January or May. Accommodation prices tend to be cheaper during these months as well!
