USA & Barbados Twin Centre Holidays
Barbados has everything you’d want from a Caribbean island destination: palm fringed tropical beaches perfect for sunbathing, calm turquoise seas for swimmers and paddlers, wild Atlantic surf for water sports fans, a fascinating history, vibrant culture and year round sunshine. Add to this the festivals, the rum and the welcoming locals and you can be sure of an unforgettable Caribbean getaway.
There’s also a distinctive English flavour here with English sounding place names, a local passion for cricket and afternoon tea on the menu alongside fiery curries and fried fish. The West African/ British cultural fusion dates back to the island’s colonial past which is also evident in plantation homes like the stunning Jacobean mansion of St Nicholas Abbey and period townships such as Speightstown and Bathsheba.
There’s nowhere you can get a better understanding of the history of Barbados than in the island’s capital city Bridgetown. The whole downtown area and garrison have been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and there are plenty of historic landmarks to discover if you fancy a day off the beach. Alternatively, if you’re lucky enough, you may be able to catch a one day international or test match at the Kensington Oval.
Away from Bridgetown, you can choose to explore the interior of the island with beautifully kept botanic gardens like the Andromeda Gardens in Bathsheba, popular underground wonderlands like Harrison’s Cave or quiet roads through rolling hills and sugar plantations. But chances are, the warm and inviting sea will beckon and all roads will lead back to the beach. This is a holiday after all.
