Baja and Beach life
Barbados is a stunning coral island in the Caribbean and well known for its white sandy beaches, coral reefs and friendly locals! What you may notice immediately though is that amongst the Caribbean holiday vibe it has a distinctly British feel with colonial style properties and even the odd cricket green!
Barbadians, called Bajans, are warm and friendly, making you feel welcome without even trying, this, alongside some of the most stunning natural beauty in the world makes you feel immediately like you won’t want to leave.
A holiday in Barbados offers a host of activities from excellent snorkelling and Scuba Diving, and is great for anyone with an interest in art, gospel and Jazz music not forgetting rum tasting!
A beautiful island, with soul … Barbados will leave you relaxed and smiling long after you return home!
One of the biggest areas on Barbados is Christ Church, on the south coast. This hosts beach resorts such as Maxwell, Hastings and Rockley, as well as St Lawrence Gap – the party capital of Barbados. This is the place to be after dark with rum bars a plenty, Bajan restaurants and lively night clubs. For something a bit different Oistins fish market is well worth a visit on a Friday night, not only will you find a wide variety of fried fish on offer but there is also a local arts and craft market in the area.
