Holetown is the oldest town in Barbados, but you'd hardly know it from its modern appearance. Holetown has so much to offer from duty free shopping, restaurants to cater for all tastes and budgets and a lively nightlife found in the first and second avenue, all just footsteps away from the beach
Speightstown - Was the first major port and commercial centre of Barbados. Falling into disrepair and neglected over the years it has now been revived and is the home of a brand new luxury marina development - Port St. Charles - and a number of exciting initiatives. There are excellent hotels and restaurants in the area as well as an art gallery, and some fine examples of original Barbados architecture.
Sandy Lane – Famous for its golf course and jet set millionaires; for a large luxury villa on the west coast of Barbados then this is the perfect location.
Oistins - In the parish of Christ Church, is a major fishing community in Barbados with a modern fishing market and every Friday is known as Fish Friday, this is the best place to walk around the stalls and get the best freshly cooked fish in Barbados.
St Lawrence Gap
St. Lawrence Gap - A 1.3 km stretch of road in the parish of Christ Church, is famous for its fine restaurants, diverse accommodation, lively nightlife and good shopping. 'The Gap', as it is commonly known, is a place where various cultures meet and merge ... it is an experience that should not be missed!
Bathsheba – The Soup Bowl at Bathsheba derives its name from the foamy surf found here and is the site of many local and international surfing championships. This is a great place to surf, with steady big rollers coasting in across the Atlantic Ocean.
The Crane – The Crane Hotel boasts three restaurants all overlooking the wonderful Crane beach, there is also a chattel style shopping village just recently opened.
The Barbados Golf Club
The Barbados Golf Club originally built in 1974, this is the oldest 18 hole golf course on the island. It was completely redesigned (by Ron Kirby of Palm Beach) and rebuilt in 1999 to bring it up to full Championship standard. 6805 yards off the back, Par 72 and a Slope rating of 124 - makes it a great course with plenty of water hazards, beautiful mature trees and a few touches of "links". Plus, there's a magnificent finish to a stadium double green.
One of the great natural wonders of the Caribbean is Harrison's Cave open daily; first tour 8:30am, last tour 4pm; It's a massive limestone cavern with stalagmites, stalactites, rivers, waterfalls and lakes that you can see from an electric tram that weaves its way through the caves. The existence of a cave network was known in 1796 and is believed to have served as a hiding place for runaway slaves.
Barbados is acknowledge as the preferred vacation destination for generations of A-list celebrities from all walks of life and ranked number 1 in the Caribbean for the greatest percentage of repeat visitors.
Thanks to a year round climate of near perfect weather conditions, a salubrious natural environment and a safe tolerant and harmonious society, Barbados has become one of the world's most aspirational destinations.
For an island measuring a mere 14 x 21 miles, Barbados offers visitors a tremendous variety of activities and days can be spent as busy, or as leisurely, as you choose.
There is a refreshing mix that goes beyond the usual visitor criteria of sun, sea and sand' - scratch the surface and discover a vibrant culture and a fascinating heritage with a UNESCO World Heritage Inscription; and, above all, the special flair of the Bajan people, who are considered the warmest and friendliest in the Caribbean.
