A sophisticated Caribbean paradise boasting some of the world’s finest resorts

This small coral island is big on personality, culture and unadulterated Caribbean indulgence. With a unique atmosphere ‘Little England’ is at times incredibly familiar – think games of cricket and afternoon tea – and at others the tropical paradise of your imagination. As the eastern-most island in the Caribbean the island is a land of contrasts, defined by crashing Atlantic waves to the east and the calm, clear waters of the Caribbean to the west.

Barbados offered a true flavour of the Caribbean from the moment we stepped off the aircraft. You can’t help but relax into the slow way of life, and will find that you’re permanently grinning.
