If you’re looking for a Caribbean vacation packed with things to do, look no further than Barbados. There are so many interesting and active things you can get up to on the island, so book up one of the beautiful villas in Barbados and get ready for the holiday of a lifetime.
Hire a Car and Tour the Island
Barbados is so diverse that the best way to see it is by car, so you can enjoy the gorgeous and quiet coasts to the north and east, surfing beaches of the south, and rolling countryside in the center of the island- and everything in between. The island is a completely different experience when you escape the crowded beaches, and explore the beautiful land within. Make sure to stop at the rum shops along the way!
Oistins Fish Fry
Every Friday night is fish night on Barbados, and Oistins in the parish of GetChrist Church is the happening spot to catch up with locals and dine on some fabulous freshly caught fish and chips. Live music starts up around 7 pm, with everything from reggae beats to ballroom dancing providing the entertainment for this festive event.
It wouldn’t be a complete trip to Barbados without checking out the vibrant life under the sea. Snorkel among colorful fish along the bright coral reefs- the crystal waters let you see for what seems like miles. Or if you prefer to stay dry, take the Atlantis submarine down to depths of 100 feet to view all manner of sea life!
A great way to meet locals and enjoy the beautiful natural landscape is by joining a hiking group though local website www.hikebarbados.com. They organize weekly walks and hikes all over the island on Sundays- with varying degrees of difficulty.
Watch a Sporting Event
Barbados has cricket pitches in every Parish, so check out those or the main stadium in in the Capital for a lively afternoon watching oen of the island’s popular sports. The island also hosts a marathon, half marathon and several fun runs if you’d like the experience of competing with people from all over the world.
