If you’re looking to pop the question to your significant other in pure paradise, there is no better place than Barbados. It's a luxury haven of soft white sands, endless turquoise waves, and lush green tropical gardens. Your every whim is catered to on this romantic Caribbean island.

Whether your partner wants to be romanced by the ocean, enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience like freediving, or prefers the comforts of their own suite, a proposal in Barbados will be a memory of a lifetime for you both. 

Allow us to narrow down the best Barbados proposal places for you to pop that all-important question. 

And don’t forget to check out the ultimate luxury Barbados getaway for your magical day. 

In a garden of paradise at The Flower Forest Botanical Gardens

This majestic garden boasts 53 acres of flowers and fauna to explore sure to whisk your partner off to a sensory paradise. Whilst you’re exploring the vibrant scenery, you can get down on one knee to pop the question in one of the many peaceful pathways. Or you can stroll down to the majestic coastline, wherever you choose; it’s one of the most magical and fragrant spots in Barbados to do it.

On the beach at sunset

One of the most scenic ways to propose is on the soft white sands of the Barbados beaches. And your hotel is surrounded by the most breathtaking beaches imaginable, so finding a spot should be easy.

The hotel staff will be more than accommodating to make your dream proposal come true, whether it’s a picnic on the sands, a romantic dinner by candlelight, or a water sports adventure. 

Your resort beach is five-star luxury, so no matter which Winged Boots hotel you pick, you’re sure of a stunning backdrop for your big question. 

If in doubt, you could always travel further afield to the most stunning beaches that Barbados has to offer. The two stand-out beaches are:

Carlisle Bay
This majestic beach is surrounded by stunning palm trees, which is perfect for finding a beautiful secluded area. Before you get down on one knee, spend the day exploring the six shipwrecks during a snorkelling session, where you’ll also see the mesmerising marine life, rock lobsters, fish and turtles. For something unique and romantic, you could even book a horseback riding session on the beach. 

Miami Beach
If you want a more adventurous experience beforehand, Miami Beach is full of exciting activities. For example, the south side has big waves for surfing and water sports, perfect for couples that love to get their adrenaline pumping. However, if you’re looking for a calmer side of this idyllic bay, the cove on the north side is perfect for peaceful swimming and finding a little piece of paradise for asking the big question.

Planning your next journey ?

Our expertise, worldwide connections, and the way we do things with a relentless drive means whatever your travels needs are, we can make it happen for you whenever, however, wherever and every time.

The restaurant at your hotel

It’s a classic for a reason. Nothing is more romantic than decadent dining incorporated into a proposal.

The best part is that you can enlist the help of the restaurant staff to make the dream proposal happen. So whether you want to serve the ring with the dessert, drop it in their champagne bubbles or perhaps just the classic pull from the jacket, you’ll have plenty of cheers from neighbouring diners. 

For something a little more intimate, you can work with restaurant staff to create a private dining experience either in your room or by candlelight on the beach.

In front of a waterfall at Harrison’s Cave

For the most magical proposal, Harrison’s Cave is a treasure trove of streams, waterfalls, and incredible stalactite and stalagmite formations. A tram tour takes you through these magical caves, but you can ask staff for a more secluded spot to bend the knee. Or perhaps take your love to the nearby nature walks and propose amongst the tropical flora and fauna.
