Famed for the friendliness and hospitality of its people, Barbados is a perfect destination for luxury holidays. There is an enormous choice of top quality accommodation, from famous resorts and deluxe hotels to smaller and more intimate inns and guesthouses. Whatever the scale of accommodation required, Barbados holidays are an option for all.
The Caribbean islands are renowned as a haven for water sports and Barbados does not disappoint. Surfers and windsurfers are drawn to the east coast where the sharper breezes from the Atlantic Ocean provide ideal conditions to ride the waves. On the west coast, the more protected beaches offer myriad opportunities for scuba diving or snorkelling, swimming and fishing.
Fishing out in the deep sea is an experience never to be forgotten and experienced sailors are on hand to take anglers out on the ocean to hunt for the huge marlin that grace the waters, or the many different types of shark. Big-game fishing is exciting and sobering, a reminder of the beauty and unpredictability of the natural world.
A more relaxing time can be spent at the many spas on the island. Treatments from all over the world, as well as from the Caribbean, are available to be enjoyed, together with saunas, steam rooms and massages. Most resorts and luxury hotels have fitness centres with all the latest exercise equipment to tone the body and ensure a healthy lifestyle.
Guests will want to relax in the evening, looking forward to a gastronomic experience while sipping exotic cocktails on the beach as the sun fades below the horizon.
