Must See Things In Barbados   by Eleanor Ramsay

Barbados is a great destination to visit on your holiday to the Caribbean. Barbados lies in the southern Caribbean, close to the South America continent. The climate is tropical, with mild temperatures kept bearable by the winds off the Atlantic Ocean. 
The island has the nickname 'little England' owing to the stamp that the British left on this former colony. The national obsession is cricket - like many other former British colonies in the Caribbean. This suits the relaxed lifestyle of Barbados.

Barbados is more than just an island in the West Indies. It's almost a way of life, synonymous with exclusive hotels and fashionable restaurants. Barbados has one of the highest standards of living in the world. Yet what originally made the island so popular - its coral sand beaches, turquoise waters and warm, friendly people - is still very much in evidence. Even the tiny chattel houses retain their positions alongside the luxury West Coast hotels, ensuring that the island's natural charm is never sacrificed.

Barbados' winter social scene continues to rival London's, with its stylish collection of West Coast restaurants.

There are some good venues to try on the South Coast too, as well as some lively nightspots. This is just one reason why being independently mobile is always a good idea here.  Another good reason to hire a car is to explore the island, in particular the East Coast where you'll find the island's most dramatic scenery. 

Alternatively, take a helicopter trip, a VIP escorted tour, a day aboard a luxury yacht, or perhaps an island safari. It would be impossible to describe Barbados without mentioning the game of golf. The design talents of Tom Fazio and Robert Trent Junior have been used to optimal effect on the championship courses at Royal Westmoreland and Sandy Lane.

A holiday to Barbados gives you the best of both worlds... relaxation for those looking to unwind and plenty of activities for the more active.
