A Barbados Briefing (adapted from www.Barbados.org)

Barbados is a coral island, pushed out of sea by volcanic activity long ago. On the West Coast of Barbados, coral shore beaches of fine white sand stretch along a blue-green sea. Coral reefs edge the shoreline and provide excellent snorkeling and scuba diving. Along the East Coast a strong and constant trade winds blows, and waves pound against a rocky shore. The constant breeze of the trade winds give Barbados a mild and pleasant tropical climate.

When you visit, you will see Barbados is mostly a flat with excellent beaches. There are some rolling hills and many deep ridges and gullies.  Furthermore, you will also find an interesting distribution of flora and fauna. Within the Barbados coral core there are many caves and underground pools. 

Barbados Expectation

Barbados has lots of art, activities, night life, music, history and some of the best restaurants to be found anywhere. But what makes Barbados even more special, and the reason so many visitors keep returning to the island, is the people.

Barbadians, called Bajans, are warm and friendly, always ready to greet you with a sincere smile. You will feel it’s your home. You will want to come back again and again to Barbados. It’s a unique Caribbean paradise, surprisingly sophisticated, friendly, fun and always naturally charming!
