10 Must-Do’s on Holiday in Barbados


Barbados has so much to offer in terms of attractions, activities and adventure. If you’re looking for recommendations for your Barbados vacation, look no further than these ten must-dos:

  1. Catamaran Sailing along the West Coast

To sail the West Coast in luxury, you can’t go past Silver Moon Catamaran Cruises. Their intimate tours are for groups of no more than 12 people. You can get up close and personal with sea turtles, explore shipwrecks, enjoy a traditional Bajan lunch and soak up the sun on the deck.

  1. Submarine ride

It’s not every day you get to experience the ocean from the vantage point of a submarine. Hop aboard a family-friendly Atlantis Submarine Tour, choosing from a day, evening or night ride. You’ll be able to explore a shipwreck 130 feet below without even getting your feet wet!

  1. Liming at Oistins Fish Fry

Oistins is famous for eating and liming (hanging out) on a Friday night. They specialise in fried and grilled locally-caught fish. Kick back with a cold beer and listen to the live music or join in the dancing! The relaxed atmosphere is ideal for meeting new people and having an all-round great time.

  1. Animal Flower Cave

The Animal Flower Cave is named after the sea anemones which live in the pools on the cave floor and is a must-see for the whole family. Sunlight streams into the cave from openings which overlook the glorious ocean. The cave walls are covered in interesting rock formations which have gained colour because of oxidation.

  1. Hunte’s Gardens

If you’re a nature-lover or gardener, then Hunte’s Gardens should be top of your list. The gardens are easily accessible within a gully in the centre of Barbados’ rainforest. A path leads along the series of mini-gardens which are accompanied by classical music. Anthony Hunte is the owner of the gardens, and is the talented horticulturist who designed them.

  1. Scuba Diving or Snorkelling

It’s impossible to get the most out of your holiday to Barbados without experiencing the wonder of the ocean life. Snorkelling is easy for the inexperienced, but if you want a close-up look then scuba diving is a must. Explore the barrier reefs and multiple shipwrecks on a daily dive trip or charter.

  1. South Coast Boardwalk at Hastings

This 1km boardwalk runs from Rocklea Beach towards Bridgetown, parallel to Hastings Main Road. It is the perfect vantage point to view the glorious sunset, with proximity to sand and sea. Enjoy an afternoon stroll, early morning jog or simply take in the surrounds.

  1. Garrison Savannah

Do you enjoy a day at the races? Then head down to the historic Garrison Savannah for a race day with Barbados Turf Club. This structure has been used for horse racing since 1845. Current race days involve an afternoon of nine races and are popular with locals.

  1. Dover Beach

This popular beach is on the island’s south coast in the St. Lawrence Gap. It is manned by a lifeguard, so is popular for water sports, swimming and even just soaking up the sunshine. Enjoy a refreshing ice cream from a beachside stall. You can even head to happy hour at the Dover Beach Hotel bar.

  1. Rum Tour at Mount Gay Visitor Centre

You’re in the Caribbean, so it’s a given you’ll want to partake in their famous rum. Mount Gay Rum has been crafted for over 300 years in Barbados. For some rum-tastic history, the Mount Gay Visitor Centre offers five different tours, from rum-tastings to cocktail tours and even rum and food pairings.
