A Caribbean island
born of serendipity
Discover the beauty
Barbados may not be a large island, but it is one packed with an amazing variety of nature. All easily accessible from Apes Hill, find out more about our island below.
The West Coast
Sheltered from the crashing waves of the Atlantic and lapped at by the gentle Caribbean Sea, the beaches here are known as the ‘Platinum Coast.’
The East Coast
Its rugged terrain and windswept beaches make for lush nature trails and astonishing views. Safe shallows at Crane Beach and Bath while coral pools act as hot tubs at Bathsheba Beach.
The District's craggy hills and fields, resembling the UK’s Scottish highlands, are a result of sitting on an elongated underwater mountain range called the Barbados Ridge Accretionary Prism.
National Heritage Sites
An island rich
We are fortunate to be on an island that’s been blessed with natural beauty and deep, cultural heritage. Explore Bridgetown, our capital and a UNESCO world heritage site with over 100 historic, listed buildings.
World-famous, the island’s Crop Over Festival runs from July-August, culminating in a flamboyant street parade, while for foodies, there’s October’s four-day Food and Rum Festival. As for family fun, Oistins Festival over Easter is a community favourite. Meanwhile, music and dancing can be found on the island all year and there are ample sporting events to enjoy - from surf competitions to cricket tournaments.
Before You Arrive
Working Remotely from
A Barbadian Paradise
Once upon a time, the idea of doing your job in a tropical paradise was an impossible dream. Today, it is real – thanks to the Barbados Welcome Stamp. Find out more about how you can work remotely from Barbados and embrace a new island lifestyle.
With more than 3000 hours of sunshine a year and refreshing northeast trade winds that keep you cool, Barbados enjoys idyllic temperatures all year round. Even during the wet season (July to November), you can expect consistent bright skies with short storms followed by sunshine.
From beach shacks to Michelin-starred chefs and award-winning restaurants, such as Tides, La Cabane and The Fish Pot, you’ll find a diverse and thriving culinary scene on the island. However, if you want authentic, the national dish of Barbados is flying fish served with cou-cou – a polenta-esque concoction, made with cornmeal and okra, while macaroni pie and fishcakes, pudding and souse – that’s pickled pork and steamed sweet potato by the way - are firm local favourites.
Safety and Healthcare
Health risks are minimal in Barbados and their facilities are world class. Though crime occurs, it’s rare - with Barbadians known to be friendly and honest.
