So you are planning a trip to Barbados and wondering what the heck do I do when I get there? Need some ideas? Here is a list that is just for you :


Let’s go to the beach : 



Barbados has approximately 61 beaches, For all, you beachaholics out there it is basically Vitamin Sea paradise. Some of the top rated beaches are :

The Crane Beach – St.Philip  

Bath Beach St. John 

Mullins – St.Peter 

My personal favorite is Browne’s Beach. The water is pristine and there are four beach bars and water sports activities for those looking for a good lime

Let’s go Sailing:

 A catamaran cruise is the ultimate fun in the sun experience. Snorkeling, food, and drinks or just relaxing in the sun. A slice of luxury mixed with a whole lot of laid-back fun.

These were the top rated ones :     


Cool Runnings

    Barbados is one of my top ten places I want to visit! Being an island girl myself (half Greek Cypriot, half French from Martinique!) I am a total beach bum! I love the list and how you recommend names of places to go and what activities to do along with the name of the top tours. Amazing pictures, and great post!

    These are all good and exciting suggestions. Of course the first thing you need to do once you arrive is hit the beach. I would love to tour the city and if there is enough time go to that beautiful garden.

    • Tachiwi says:

      As a self declared beach bum . I say yes to the beach every time . The island is pretty small so I think you could fit a lot into a few days .
