Barbados is one of the best known and much loved islands of the Caribbean, long established as a fabulous holiday retreat with its superb beaches, an endless list of activities, fascinating history and culture, exceptional cuisine and the warmest, friendliest welcome from the Bajan people.
Situated in the south eastern Caribbean Sea, 100 miles east from St. Vincent and The Grenadines, this pear-shaped island, measuring just 21 miles long and 14 miles wide, is blessed with the beautiful calm of the Caribbean Sea on the west coast and the scenic, dramatic Atlantic coastline on the east.
Steeped in history, drawn from its English, African and West Indian roots, Barbados has its own fascinating and distinctive identity which guests can experience through its captivating customs, culture, art and traditions.
Divided into 11 parishes, each with their own attractions, the focus for visitors is the Parish of St. James, known as the Platinum Coast with its range of beautiful accommodation options.
