As well as relaxing by the pool soaking up the sun, Barbados is an island full of things to do and places to see.

The West Coast is the favorite destination of the rich and famous seeking daytime peace and tranquility whilst remaining in close proximity to the wonderful array of top quality restaurants located there. You really will be spoilt for choice!

Water sports are a huge part of daily life on the West Coast in the calm waters of the Caribbean and catamaran tours provide an excellent way of seeing the island from a different perspective.

There is also plenty of nightlife around the South Coast for those wanting something more lively and party people love to be in St Laurence Gap or Harbour Lights into the early hours.

The less developed East Coast is a spectacular vista of rugged coastline and Atlantic surf.
