Explore The Exciting Island Of Barbados



images-2Barbados is an island in the Caribbean that has something for everyone. Whether you’re interested in shopping, the ocean, the mountains, or the night life, you’re bound to find something to pique your interest in this warm, welcoming island paradise.

Barbados’s capital is Bridgetown, a city with about 80,000 inhabitants. The city is a great place to take in the local culture and enjoy some duty-free shopping. The famous river Careenage is a popular tourist destination. It was once used to ply trade routes through the city (and slowly establish a thriving commercial district), but it is now primarily used for pleasure boating trips down the historic city 

If you’re heading to Barbados to soak up the sun, then Accra Beach is a place you must visit at least a few times. Accra Beach is the most popular beach in Barbados, with white sands and clear blue waters. Tourists and locals alike love strolling and playing football on the shores, as well as doing all sorts of water sports on the water. Simply taking in the view makes for a pretty interesting day.

If you prefer to enjoy the sun in solitude, then there are some beaches on the east and north sides of the island that offer stretches of white sand with little, if any, people on it. Should make for an interesting walk beside the waves without the noise and distractions of a busier beach.

Head to the northern portions of Barbados if you prefer to enjoy the mountains. This portion of the island offers some spectacular views of the cliffs and the ocean beyond. Aptly called “North Point,” this part of Barbados is a great place to have picnics and simply enjoy the quieter, more contemplative side of the Caribbean.

Another place to visit is St. Lawrence’s Gap, an almost mile-long stretch of road that has many of Barbados’s best night spots and shopping centers. Aside from the obvious appeal of “The Gap,” this is also a great place to see the workings of this interesting little island. You won’t appreciate Barbados completely until you see dancers do the Soca at one of the island’s popular, enjoyable parties.


When you visit Barbados, there’s always something to do – whether in town, at the beach, in the mountains, or in the streets after dark. Better yet, why not experience all of it?
