Destination : Barbados

The Birthplace of Rum!

White-sand beaches, expansive caves, turquoise waters and Caribbean vistas as far as the eye can see are just some of the endless treasures to be discovered on the island of Barbados. Barbados is the easternmost island in the Caribbean Sea and is home to ancient shipwrecks populated with colorful fish and coral reefs, making it a perfect destination for beginner and expert divers to find their thrills.

Vibrant Culture and Rich History Come to Life

For travelers who prefer their adventures on land, hiking to the highest point of Barbados, the peak of Mount Hillaby, provides the perfect perch to soak in the beautiful vision of the beaches and bays below. The famed Flower Forest Botanical Gardens are where people go to enjoy the vibrant, lush vegetation of the island.

For those who prefer to lavish attention on their palette, Bajans, as people from Barbados are called, are famous for great cuisine. Their national dish of cou cou, a polenta-like dish made of cornmeal and okra, served with flying fish is a must-try. These eats are perfectly paired with locally produced rum, as Barbados is known to be the birthplace of the drink.

If you are in the mood for dancing, visit some of the many outdoor clubs famed for their nightlife. These big outdoor parties feature live calypso, soca music and other musical styles. Singer and celebrity Rihanna is a native of Barbados and has found ample inspiration in the island's rich musical heritage.
