My first Caribbean Holiday Experience Barbados
Flying into Barbados I was instantly struck by its beauty as our aircraft positioned to land at the islands airport, located in the south of the island close to Bridgetown the capital. It was my first time in the Caribbean and it was and will never be my last I was just blown away!
Coming from the UK I was used to holidays in Europe and the Med and a couple of trips to the Canary Islands which where great but non really prepared me for my first real long haul trip. Im so glad I choose the Caribbean and Barbados though and I would really recommend it to anyone travelling to the Caribbean for the first time.
So why choose Barbados for a Vacation?
I suppose for a Brit I was still in a way travelling in my comfort zone Barbados is part of the Commonwealth and a destination so many people from the UK travel too and speak highly about, plus they speak English which is also an added benefit!
The island has so much more to offer of course every water-sport you could hope for but also top golf courses and tennis for the more energetic too and great shopping and sightseeing.
Where to stay in Barbados?
We stayed on the the West of Barbados at the Tamarind which is a beautiful hotel I really could not fault it or its location and would recommend it to anyone. But I am also hoping one day to save up and return to the neighboring Sandy Lane which we popped in to have a nose and it was just out of this world!
But saying that Barbados has accommodation for all budgets from cheap apartments to the every best 5* Hotels in the world, something for everyone from couples looking for romance and or a honeymoon to a family vacation all inclusive resort.
The West coast of Barbados is defiantly the most popular as the sea on the East is far more exposed to the Atlantic and the waves are therefor rougher, saying that this may well suit those looking for a more rugged Caribbean and or quieter experience.
Barbados is just great fab people and just Beautiful!
Did I enjoy Barbados?
Yes I loved every minute and would love to go back but I must say its given me an appetite to explore more of the area and really cant wait to start on my next Caribbean Adventure which I hope will be very soon.
Barbados will always hold a special place magnificent beaches and water sports and the people and food are so great too. Add in a splash of nightlife especially down in Bridgetown and for me its a holiday made in heaven catering for everyone singles, couples and or all the family what ever age!
