English Class and Caribbean Taste in Barbados

Barbados offers the best of two worlds. It is a tropical Caribbean island complete with colourful markets, sun-soaked beaches and the flavours of the West Indies; at the same time, the country still holds onto its British past, having been a colony for more than three centuries. Barbados villa rentals give you the chance to enjoy both the tropical paradise and the genteel manners. You have simply never experienced high tea until you’ve sipped your afternoon beverage with some fresh banana cake at an old plantation house on the island.

Enjoying Tastes of the Islands in Barbados Villa Rentals

With its Caribbean and British influences, Barbados has developed its own unique flavours and cuisine. The highlight of any vacation based at a Barbados apartment rental is the chance to really get to know life on this island. You can eat a banana that has ripened on the tree in the sun, and find out just how flavourful fruit can really be! Why not explore the markets of Bridgetown, learning about okra, breadfruit and Bajan pepper sauce? At dinner time, head out to any of the world-class restaurants on the island to taste flying fish, Bajan fried chicken or curry.

Of course, there is also the island’s famous rum. Barbados has been making some of the world’s best rum for nearly 400 years. In fact, Mount Gay is the oldest rum company still in operation. Today, vacationing at Barbados villa rentals gives you the chance to visit any of the island’s distilleries. The icing on the cake is sampling the many varieties of rum created here in the Caribbean sunshine.

Explore the Coral Reefs with Barbados Diving Vacations

Just off the shores of beautiful Barbados, Caribbean coral reefs are home to an incredible display of colourful sea life. Barbados diving excursions are popular with anyone who wants to snorkel or scuba dive in remarkable parts of the ocean, where you can observe sponges and small fish, delicate seahorses and the gentle glide of the Hawksbill turtle, in their natural habitat.

As well as the eels, fish and coral, there are nearly 200 shipwrecks in the waters off this island, making Barbados diving a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Plan a diving excursion to Carlisle Bay, where most of the underwater wrecks are easily accessible, or to Folkstone Marine Park, where an artificial reef is forming around the Stavronikita shipwreck.

Beautiful Barbados Beaches

Barbados beaches stretch on and on for more than 100 kilometres, wrapping this topical island in a white band of soft sand. There are more than 60 beaches on the island, from popular family beaches with gentle waves, to pristine stretches of wild coastline. It’s not just quantity; it’s also about the quality. Crane Beach on the southwest coast is consistently named one of the top ten beaches in the world. Powder-soft white sand lines the base of rugged cliffs, and the colour of the water blurs from aquamarine to turquoise. This Barbados beach is also known as the best place on the island to watch the sun rise.

With all that beauty and refinement, it’s time to stop dreaming and start planning your next vacation at a Barbados apartment rental, so you can taste the flavours, feel the sand between your toes and enjoy all aspects of this delightful and unique Caribbean island.
