About Barbados – the Jewel of the Caribbean
Barbados is the easternmost of the Caribbean islands and offers visitors a truly authentic experience. With a rich culture and history, the island is 166 square miles and has a population of approximately 275,000 people. Though given the name “Los Barbados” by Portuguese sailors in the 1500s, the first English settlers arrived in 1627, and the island remained a British colony until 1966, when it became an independent nation.
With 80-plus pristine white-sand beaches, from the calm azure waters of the west coast to the unspoilt, crashing waves of the east, Barbados is justifiably famed for its beaches. Whilst many are recognised as the most beautiful in the world, Barbados has plenty more to offer the discerning traveller. Visit plantation houses, botanic gardens, rum distilleries and caves nestled among the fields of sugar cane, as well as the capital Bridgetown and its historic Garrison area. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is not to be missed and represents a significant era of British colonial military heritage.
Barbados is often referred to as the culinary capital of the Caribbean. The island has an unparalleled food scene, with an array of outlets, from places to try the local cuisine to fine dining restaurants and everything in between. The island has a programme of numerous festivals throughout the year, from jazz to sailing, gospel to rum, reggae to horse racing and of course one of the calendar highlights, Crop Over and Grand Kadooment.
Barbados is the dream destination for your travels: with over 3,000 hours of sunshine per annum, a year-round tropical climate with average temperatures in the high 20s, and a safe, welcoming environment, it is tailor-made for fun, relaxation and surprise.
