Why to visit Barbados in 2016, by Jenny Basham, Carrier's Reservations Manager for the Caribbean, Mexico, USA & Canada.
Barbados celebrates 50 years of independence this year, and I could give just as many reasons as to why this remains one of my favourite Caribbean destinations. Yes, many involve the local cuisine – I love how there are endless ways to enjoy the best of Bajan food. Delicious lobster at the Friday fish fry at Oistins Bay Gardens, seared tuna with superb sunsets at fine-dining institution The Cliff, and now, a playful a la carte menu courtesy of new younger sister, The Cliff Beach Club. Every November, the Barbados Food & Wine and Rum Festival pays homage to local and international culinary delights with cooking demonstrations, world-class rum, polo, shopping, beach entertainment and parties. Thanks to the big anniversary, 2016 promises to be the best yet with a full programme of exciting events and activities planned.
