Highlights of Barbados

Barbados is the perfect place to unwind and here are some highlights:

The  beach

The beaches are beautiful and perfect place to read a book, sunbathe and listen to the sound of the waves hitting the shore. They are perfect white, sandy beaches and also make the perfect back drop for a wedding! We stayed at the Hilton Barbados, which was fantastic and had some superb beaches.

  

  

  

 Mount Gay Rum distillery

Mount Gay rum was established in 1703, and was first known as “Kill-Devil” by the Barbadians who originally distilled it. As well as drinking the rum across the island, you can visit the distillery for a tour, which is really insightful and you get to try all the different types of rum as well as see the techniques used to distil them.

Snorkelling

The sea is perfect for snorkelling and you even get to swim with turtles and manta rays! Get a catamaran cruise and enjoy rum punches on board, some amazing Caribbean music and party on board and then see some amazing sea life in the cool, clear waters.

The food

Barbados has a fantastic selection of restaurants. Favourites include The Tides, Oistins, Apsara Samudra and The Cliff.



Cocktails

Considering they have amazing rum on the island, the cocktails are pretty awesome!
