With no fewer than 900 miles of attractive, sandy beaches and all the laid-back bustle you'd expect of a major Caribbean city, Bridgetown offers many delights to visitors booking their Barbados holiday with The Co-operative Travel.
The town became commercially successful on the back of its ideal location as a natural harbour, placing it at the heart of the island's trade.
Barbados' colonial roots are still well in evidence, especially in the statue of Lord Nelson - older than the one in Trafalgar Square, London - which stands opposite the main Government buildings.
With a plethora of hotels catering for all tastes and pockets, self-catering apartments, and modern self-contained private resorts, there's plenty to choose from whether you're looking for a package holiday or all-inclusive holiday.
Summer here lasts for six months of the year, and this more prolonged season helps the town never feel too crowded. There are spectacular beaches and water parks to explore, and catamaran, boat or even submarine tours of the island are available.
The nightlife of Bridgetown is widely renowned. People come out to enjoy happy hours which take place in many of the bars, before heading on to an open-air nightclub, where they continue the party to a background of DJs playing reggae, ska, jazz, R&B and chart music
Bridgetown is a shopper's delight, with many stores offering luxury items at prices which reflect the island's tax-free status, and purpose-built shopping complexes where you can easily lose yourself.
So to bask in the real character of Barbados, come to Bridgetown, and let The Co-operative Travel help you realise your Caribbean dream!
