Last minute holidays to Barbados
Jet off to the island of your dreams: Barbados
Situated on the string of idyllic islands in the Caribbean Sea, Barbados may be as close as it's possible to get to paradise on earth. The island has long been a favourite holiday home destination for the rich and famous, but you certainly don't need to be a celebrity to take advantage of the many last minute deals we offer for Barbados getaways.
Bridgetown, or 'town', as the locals refer to it, is the capital of Barbados, and those enjoying luxury holidays staying in the city's hotels are a very short distance from the white sandy beaches that the island is famed for. But everywhere else in Barbados is relatively near a beach! Pick from hundreds of picturesque spots around the whole island, which is only 166 square miles and easily toured by rental car.
Beaches like you wouldn't believe in Barbados
There is perhaps nowhere that possesses beaches as beautiful as Barbados. The combination of clean, turquoise water, pristine white sand and a climate which averages 27°C the whole year round, makes luxury holidays on the island an irresistible option for a summer vacation or winter break.
If you are staying on the west coast of the island, Mullins Beach is one of the most popular on the island, with a lively atmosphere that won't cut you off from the Bajans and their vibrant culture. Staying in the west, Payne's Bay is another coveted spot. Snorkel near the reef and check out the marine life, which includes a congregation of turtles!/p>
A culinary experience to treasure
Along the west coast, you will find a host of restaurants which are considered to be among the best in the Caribbean. Savour some of the best seafood in the region, cooked by renowned chefs. From spiced crab to king fish fillets, the advantage of island dining is the unmatched freshness of the dishes. You may also like to sample some local cuisine, which is usually hearty fare such as jerk pork, macaroni pie and pepper stew.
