Barbados Holidays | Cheap Barbados Holidays 2018

Known as the 'Pearl of the Caribbean', Barbados is a deservedly world-famous tourist destination. A gorgeous tropical paradise containing the popular cruise port of Bridgetown, the island itself is actually an enormous coral reef that was formed over a million years ago. This unique geography results in a breathtaking coastline, and some of the best snorkelling, surfing and diving action in the world.

The western half of the pear-shaped island, often referred to as the Platinum Coast, is dominated by deluxe beach resorts, filled nearly all year by eager package-tour holidaymakers looking to bronze their skins on the calm shores of the Caribbean Sea. The central highlands area of the island is home to some interesting cultural sights (including distilleries and plantations), picturesque villages and some amazing walking and hiking trails. The eastern half of the island, which gives way to the Atlantic Ocean, is commonly referred to as the 'Soup Bowl' because of its big waves and foaming surf; this is the place to be for surfers and backpackers, home to an assortment of low-cost accommodation and lively beach-side bars.

Called 'Little England' by some, Barbados' strong ties with English culture over the years have bequeathed it a genial atmosphere and good infrastructure. The sun shines 340 days of the year in Barbados, and the famously friendly locals only serve to increase the island's glorious ambience. Barbados is one of the most popular winter sun vacation destinations in the world for northern hemisphere tourists, and is an obligatory stop on any Caribbean cruise adventure.

Information & Facts

Climate

Barbados is sunny and fair, and can be visited at any time of year. The best time to visit Barbados is during the dry season, which runs from January to June - making it the perfect winter sun vacation destination for travellers from the northern hemisphere. The hurricane season in Barbados runs from June to October, but the island is not generally prone to these natural disasters: visitors will far more likely experience short and spectacular tropical rainstorms during this time.
