A tropical gem in the heart of the Caribbean, Barbados is famous for its breath-taking beaches, stunning scenery and beautiful, year-round sunshine.
Caribbean holidays don¿t come much better than this. Book a holiday to Barbados and you¿ll find excellent coral reefs to swim amongst; countless attractions to keep everyone entertained; some of the friendliest locals you could ever wish to meet; and, above all, a real taste of paradise.
There is a distinct British feel around the island so you may notice colonial style properties and even the odd cricket green dotted here and there. One thing¿s for certain though, the weather definitely can¿t be compared to the British weather we experience at home. The typically Caribbean climate of Barbados has two seasons; wet season from June to November and dry season from December until May, with the average annual temperature being an incredibly comfortable 26¿C. Perfect for lazy days by the pool; gentle strolls along the white, sandy beaches or delving deeper into the island and exploring the local culture and history.
Barbados holidays are extremely popular with the rich and famous, so if you head to the west of the island to resorts such as St. James, you could find yourself brushing shoulders with the stars. Not only do celebrities head here on holiday, but the island is also pop star Rihanna¿s home country, so you never know, she could be making a return visit whilst you¿re also there.
