Are you looking to for a unique travel destination? Well, make travel plans to the most eastern island in the Caribbean sea and get ready to head over to Little England  for a visit to the beautiful island of Barbados.

Known as the land of the “Flying Fish”, Bajans incorporate this fish in their national dish.

Of course, it is no secret that the waters surrounding Barbados are crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. Discover the turquoise beaches and white sand on this gem of an island.

Worry not; Barbados has perks for all kinds of travelers. To the explorer, come visit the technicolor botanical garden, picks from Hunte’s Garden, Andromeda, or the Flower Forest.

Wouldn’t it be lucky to spot green monkeys and love birds? How about some delicious Bajan cuisine? With plates stacked high and mushroom clouds of smoke pluming in the sky, you are in for a treat for the start of the weekly fish fry on Fridays.

Come infuse your taste buds with the delicacies of jerk chicken, flying fish, or even mahi mahi, lobster, and rum. Ready to get your groove on?

You’re in luck. Find the sounds of reggae, ska, and calypso, expect a night filled with music, dance, and activities.

History buffs have an abundance of things to discover. Did you know the island has a deep history?

Yes! Plan your sightseeing with a visit to the Jacobean mansion. Love cricket? See it in action at Kensington Oval, or see the plantation grounds on the heritage railway.

After exploring to your heart’s content, you will most definitely enjoy your stay. For the brave adventurers, you won’t feel left out.

With more than 80 silvery white sand beaches, and bath-water like temperatures, the surf is always up. With breathtaking scenery and tons of thrilling activities, (swimming with the turtles), needless to say, beautiful Barbados has an overall good vibe in store for you.

Between glittering blue sea and lily-like sand, Barbados poses as a Caribbean paradise. The vibrant and colorful culture makes this island a gem above the rest.

However, while preparing for your visit to this slice of paradise, be mindful of your fashion choices.

Check this fashion faux pas. It’s totally illegal to wear camouflage in Barbados!

camouflage is exclusively reserved for the defense force.

Not a fan of public transport? Well, Barbados has a great transport system.

Thanks to clearly labeled bus stops and scheduled busses, the task of public transport is a breeze.

When it comes to libations, you will find the national drink, Cockspur rum.

Don’t forget to drink in moderation because the rum and the unassuming rum punch does pack a serious blow. So, pace yourself while drinking. It’s better to be safe than sorry!

The people, the people! Of course, very friendly Bajan people will greet you and are always ready to help and welcoming. So, get ready for a cold drink and a long chat.

Regardless of whether you travel with a group, are a solo traveler, you will enjoy yourself. There is so much to see and do on this little island. In pristine Barbados, you will find your slice of a Caribbean paradise.
