Barbados In A Nutshell

Soak Up The Culture
 

  • Visit Harrison’s Cave and make sure you have your camera at the ready. This underground cavern is an excursion tour by tram so you can take the weight off while absorbing some history. Put your hood up as this natural wonder can sometimes drip water from the ceiling.
     
  • Head to Oistin’s Fish Fry on a Friday for the highlight of your holiday. Full to the brim with smiling locals and curious visitors, Oistin’s boasts local music, food and craft stalls that guarantee a good time. But get there early as it can get very busy, very quickly.
     
  • Animal lovers, we haven’t forgotten about you. Barbados Wildlife Reserve is a popular attraction if you fancy seeing turtles, peacocks, reptiles and many more. Cheeky monkeys are in abundance so hold on to your hats (and cameras) before they get snatched away!

Adventure Awaits
 

  • The Bajan south coast is home to the Hawksbill turtles and guests can get up close and personal on the Barbados Turtle Feed and Swim Tour. Climb aboard a boat in Bridgetown and sail to Carlisle Bay. Slip into the water with provided snorkelling gear and swim with your new friends, feeding them as you go. Light refreshments and snacks are available on the ride back.
     
  • Plunge beneath the surface at the 2-Tank Shipwreck Dive. This three-hour excursion is an exciting exploration of the Caribbean Sea. Check in for you dive at the Hilton Hotel Complex in St Michael and discover shipwrecks, coral reefs and colourful marine life down under.

Tastes To Try
 

  • For a taste of Asia in Barbados, Fusion Rooftop is the place to go. Situated on the roof of the Limegrove Lifestyle Complex, guests will experience the wow factor from start to finish. Sit under the stars and sample dishes such as red Thai curry, lobster and fresh sushi.

Perfect for a causal lunch and run by a friendly team of staff, visitors can snack on dishes such as fish cakes, mahi mahi curry with rice and a light lemon cake that would make Mary Berry proud.
