What to do in Barbados

The capital of Barbados is Bridgetown, home to the island's airport and commercial centers with shopping, restaurants, bars and designer stores. Here you can find a busy and varied nightlife, with music and drinks at ease.

Of course, the main attraction of the island is the numerous beaches of white, fine and soft sand along with a calm, turquoise blue sea, ideal for families with young children. Some of the most popular ones are Accra Beach, Sandy Lane Beach, Bath Beach, Maxwell Beach and Bottom Bay.

In addition, other worthwhile tours are cultural and historical tours along the island, such as visiting Mount Gay or Saint Nicholas Abbey. Both are renowned distilleries in Barbados, known as the birthplace of rum production on the island. Or perhaps visit the National Museum of Heroes or the Sir Frank Hutson Sugar Museum that recount the history of Barbados over the last few centuries.
