Health and wellness experiences entice.  But above all else Barbados entices with its rich, colourful culture and heritage and local people who follow suit with their warm, welcoming charm.

The South Coast

The south is best known for having something for everyone. From Bridgetown, and all the way just short of teetering east, the south is characterized by bustling people, lively spots, restaurants, contrasting shores and an underlying thrill waiting to be sought. Its natural allure comes in the form of its varied beaches. Its vivaciousness lies in St. Lawrence Gap, whose reputation lists lively bars, restaurants, clubs and even surf spots. And finally, its thrills are dotted across the full breadth of its scope, taking thrill seekers across different terrains, from tarmac to sand to waves. Everyone is sure to find an activity or a favourite spot to pass the time. 

The West Coast

The west coast of Barbados has earned itself a reverence of opulence. Considered the lap of island luxury, the Platinum Coast, as it is also known, is a marriage of chic comforts, lavish luxury, refined relaxation and sophisticated tastes. The finest of fine dining happens here, as decadent, worldly treats are served. Familiar brands of an international bearing are also present on this coast thanks to the high-end Limegrove Lifestyle Centre. But away from the coast, immaculate rolling greens, lovely polo grounds and million-dollar homes complete the landscape of this beautiful coast. Luxury is truly its religion.

The North Coast

Steeped in antiquity, the north is home of aged treasures that offer several windows to the past. Here resides St. Nicholas Abbey, one of the last three remaining Jacobean mansions in the western Hemisphere, as well as Morgan Lewis Windmill, the only operating windmill on the island. There is also Speightstown a sleepy town where tobacco and cotton carry a historic significance and the beautiful Animal Flower Cave, a true natural wonder to explore. But although the north is usually the perfect spot for lovers of history and exploration, it also offers a type of relaxation that is unmatched anywhere else on the island.

The East Coast

Barbados’ east represents a surprising change from the typical postcard image of the island. With a generally rugged, hilly terrain, it is the epitome of rural Barbados - its infrastructure is rustic and scattered, and its people unfazed by the bustle of life. This coast is a beautiful contrast from the renowned west coast, swapping powdery white sands and glassy waters for tidepools, rocky coastlines and deep blue waters that churn out a never-ending stream of swells and crashing waves. Be sure to stop at the many vantage points for a panoramic view of the coast - a soft introduction to truly appreciating Barbados off the beaten path!
