    Holidays to Barbados

    While the rest of the Caribbean was being fought over by Spaniards, Danes, French and other nations, Barbados was too far away for them to bother, meaning that British rule remained unconquered. It is still known as 'Little England' today but despite its cricket matches, English-style churches and stately homes, the locals have not abandoned their West Indian heritage. Rather they have selectively borrowed certain English ways and customs that give holidays to Barbados a certain charm.

    Luxury hotels in Barbados count Sandy Lane, the famous luxury 5 star beachfront resort, within their ranks and this and many hotels on the island provide excellent luxury Caribbean holidays.

    The southern and western coasts of Barbados offer calm light blue Caribbean Sea and fine white and pinkish sand beaches. On its Atlantic Ocean side, the waves are perfect for surfing; the 'Soup Bowl' near to Bathsheba is a very popular spot with surfers all year round.

    Other attractions include wildlife reserves, helicopter rides, golf, festivals (the largest being the annual Crop Over festival in July and August), cave exploration, a vibrant nightlife and duty-free shopping. The Barbados weather is fairly consistent and the boutique hotels are well equipped to keep guests entertained, with a fantastic array of accommodation available.
