Once you go to Barbados, you never want to go back. The phrase may be cliched, but it applies fully to Barbados. Renowned the world over for its serene beaches and idyllic setting, it is one of the foremost tourist destinations in the world. Like most other Caribbean countries, beaches are the main charm of Barbados too. Apart from gazing out into the beautiful turquoise bays, various water-activities and a vibrant nightlife underscore any trip to Barbados.
Barbados has some stunning beaches, for relaxing or having a swim. One of these spots on the east coast, known as the ‘Soup bowl’ is also a legendary location when it comes to surfing. Known for its consistent waves, it is a playground for some of the world’s best surfers. The nightlife, as one can imagine, is a cultural norm on the island and especially, on the south coast, you will find nightclubs and bars almost everywhere. Speaking of cultural norms, cricket is another aspect of the Caribbean life that unites the people of Barbados, with spectators vehemently cheering on the West Indian team when they are playing. The capital of Barbados, Bridgetown is a UNESCO world heritage city, making it a great place to explore. Wander through the crumbling colonial buildings, visit the bustling markets or discover lively dockside cafes, or simply hire a car, explore the coastal roads and enjoy the sea breeze, marveling in the wonder that is Barbados.
