Barbados Holidays

Cooled by the north-easterly trade winds, temperatures averaging a daytime high of 30o and boasting over 3000 hours of sunshine a year, it’s no wonder Barbados is known for the warmth and sunshine.

Barbados sits outside the main path of “hurricane alley” and so avoids the devastation that severe Caribbean storms can inflict. Indeed, the island usually benefits from a light breeze which creates such a delightful climate.

History of Barbados Holidays:

Barbados first became popular with the rich and famous when it became one of the few destinations for Concorde, allowing passengers to reach it from London in less than four hours. It is the most British of the Caribbean islands, sometimes referred to as “Surrey with sunshine”. Home to Cliff Richard and Cilla Black and the world-famous Sandy Lane Hotel, it is also the favourite island of many celebrities,

Things to do on Barbados Holidays:

Barbados is primarily a beach resort, not surprising given the climate, and is also an embarkation port for some Caribbean cruises, particularly P&O who use it as a base from around November to March. If you want to do more than lie on the beach then land-based activities include bowling, golf and tennis whilst you will find locals indulging in cricket and rugby. For fun on the water, try windsurfing, kayaking, kite surfing, scuba diving and swimming with turtles.

Beaches on the west coast are calm and placid whereas the seas on the south coast are more lively and better for boogie boarding and windsurfing.

The east coast is on the Atlantic and the stronger winds and Atlantic waves make it a mecca for surfers from around the world. The north coast features predominantly cliffs which rise straight out of the sea although a few sheltered coves can be found.

Romance on Barbados Holidays:

Naturally Barbados is high on the list for honeymoons and you can also get married there. No residency period is required although you may need proof of your marital status so check requirements before you go. There are a number of wedding planners in Barbados who can offer a choice of locations as well as the services of a photographer, videographer, cake maker and so on. The larger hotels will also be able to organise weddings and may have staff dedicated to this function as well as special locations in the hotel grounds. However, if you are looking for an away-from-it-all wedding, remember many of the hotel’ guests will turn up, take photographs and wish you well.
