Top things to do in Barbados

Experience the colour & vibrancy of Bridgetown

Enjoy the real life of Barbados in Bridgetown

The colourful capital city of Bridgetown is a UNESCO World Heritage site with impressive British colonial architecture.  Take time to stop by Queen's Park with its gigantic 175-year-old Baobab Tree and visit the George Washington House, where the first president stayed in 1751. Beyond Bridgetown, sugar plantation houses, military sites, rum distilleries and Barbadian chattel houses dot the landscape.

 

Enjoy the wonders of Harrison

Experience Harrison's Cave

See the natural wonder of Harrison’s Cave, with its stalactites and stalagmites cascading into an underground lake.  Don’t miss this breathtakingly beautiful limestone cavern and take a fun tram ride alongside the underground river with its towering columns and crystal clear waters.

 

Get into the party spirit at the crop over festival in Barbados

Get into the party spirit at the Crop Over Festival

Crop Over is the island’s largest and most popular festival, which can be traced back to the 1780s, when Barbados was the world's largest producer of sugar.  Traditionally at the end of the sugar season, there was a huge Crop Over celebration to mark a successful harvest.

From 5 July to 4 August 2014, the whole island is taken over by the party spirit.  Visitors can expect dancing, live music, markets, vibrant carnivals and historic exhibitions.

Enjoy an al fresco dinner at Cin Cin by the Sea


Taste the local cuisine

Visit the fishing community of Oistins for the Fish Fry on Friday and Saturday nights where locals and visitors enjoy a weekly seafood extravaganza with the very best local cooking.

Head to Cin Cin by the Sea in St James for a night of unforgettable al fresco dining. This trendy hotspot on Barbados’ west coast specialises in Mediterranean cuisine with a Caribbean twist. 

Or book a table at the elegant yet casual Daphne’s, a longstanding island favourite, where modern Italian classics are fused with local authentic flavours.  Sip a signature watermelon martini and look out for famous celebrity diners including Rihanna and Simon Cowell.  Spend the night at the luxury five-star Sandy Lane, a tranquil celebrity haunt for those seeking seclusion, a romantic retreat for couples, or the perfect location for families with a wide choice of leisure options.

 

Get up close & personal with the locals at the Barbados Wildlife Reserve

Explore Barbados Wildlife Reserve

Stroll around Barbados Wildlife Reserve, along paths that meander through a lush forest with scurrying monkeys, brocket deer, iguanas, agoutis and red-footed turtles.  There's also a remarkable aviary with macaws, cockatoos, parrots and pelicans.
