Travelguru Catherine Leech says:

With its sophisticated tourism infrastructure, Barbados is popular not only with loyal repeat visitors but also first timers to the Caribbean. After many years of catering to well heeled tourists, Bajans certainly know how to tick all the holiday boxes.

Often described as ‘two islands in one’, visitors will notice a distinct contrast between the South and West Coasts. The South Coast is generally livelier, ideal for families, the more budget conscious and those looking for nightlife beyond the hotels. The West Coast on the other hand, sometimes also referred to as the Platinum Coast is the playground of the famous and wealthy. Top end hotels stretch along the coastline, each jealously guarding their privacy and exclusive ambience.

Venture beyond your hotel and you’ll find a wealth of things to see and do and plenty of opportunities to mingle with Bajans who are only too delighted to show you round their gorgeous island.
