Why We're Mad About Barbados
The beautiful island of Barbados has been welcoming back guests with open arms, and I wanted to take this opportunity to share my personal experience of how easy (and most importantly enjoyable!) travelling to Barbados really is having returned from a recent trip.
Barbados is one of my all-time favourite places, having visited every year (2020 aside!) since I was a teenager and I couldn't wait to return again this year (November 2021). The weather in November was wonderful and getting out and about on the island was a breeze.
I've included some highlights from my recent time on the island and should you have any questions I'm always on hand to help. I can hand on heart say I enjoyed every minute of my hassle-free stay.
My Travel Tips for a Hassle-Free Stay
Whilst you need to make sure you wear a facemask in Barbados in public places and adhere to social distancing. everything really is as before. As long as you are fully vaccinated and have a negative PCR test result taken 3 days before arrival you are free to enjoy this beautiful island to the full. There is an online Immigration form to complete (instead of on the Aircraft) and the Barbados BIMSafe App to download but it really is very straightforward and our team are always on hand to help. Our VIP Fast Track helps your arrival at the Airport run even smoother.
Emma’s Holiday Highlights
Luxury Catamaran Cruise
I had a fabulous day out on Silver Moon, a luxury Catamaran that takes a maximum of only 12 guests (children are allowed). We enjoyed free-flowing rum punch, a Bajan buffet, sunbathed on deck and swam with the turtles, being thoroughly looked after throughout. A perfect day!
Discover Barbados via Mini Moke
A visit to the East Coast of Barbados is a must when visiting Barbados and what better way to explore the island, than by hiring an open-top mini moke! Taking a few wrong turns along the way is half the fun but when you arrive at the East Coast the views are undoubtedly worth it!
Animal Flower Cave
When exploring Barbados, the Animal Flower Cave is a great stop off where you can delve inside the caves and take some fabulous Instagram photos. If you fancy it you can take a dip in one of the natural pools. Not recommended for people with walking difficulties.
Barbados is the perfect place to chill out and do nothing! Whether it's relaxing by the pool (as I did here at the luxury Sugar Hill Resort) or down by the beach. Wherever you choose to relax, you can be assured you'll only be met with friendly Bajan charm.
First Class Dining
In Barbados, you're spoilt for choice with a superb array of dining options on the West Coast. Whilst some restaurants have sadly closed their doors, new ones are also emerging. Former Head Chef of The Cliff is now at The Beach House in Holetown and Juma's (serving the best catch of the day!) has a new home next door to the Lone Star.
