Beautiful white sand beaches are the initial lure to this easy-to-reach slice of the Caribbean but the small island of Barbados is big on personality.

Head to the west coast for luxurious hideaways favoured by celebrities; or the southcoast and St Lawrence Gap for a night of rum shacks and night clubs. The south is also the best spot to kitesurf; whereas you'll find the surfing mecca on the east coast, named the Soup Bowl. You can zip-line through tropical forests, discover spectacular rock formations and a 40ft waterfall in Harrison's Cave; even wander around a 350-year-old plantation house piled with antiques. We guide you through some of the best places to stay in Barbados, to make your holiday a truly unforgettable one.

The Fairmont Royal Pavilion is elegant, award winning and most definitely one of the best hotels in the Caribbean. Wake up to an ocean view, enjoy complimentary afternoon tea on the terrace and dine on exceptional cuisine.

"If you don't see it yourself, you'll never understand the true beauty of a spot up north in the parish of St Peter. The view from Cherry Tree Hill is stunning and takes my breath away each time. It offers a clear line of sight to the Scotland District and has a very calming effect."
