Outwardly, Barbados is a fusion of Bajan fare fragrances and Oliver Messel-designed houses, yet venture further in and you’ll discover a laid-back surf scene and a child-friendly carnival spirit.

Return to destinations


Like much of the rebel spirit peppered through British culture, Barbados rebels against the natural curved formation of the Caribbean’s other islands, as though even from its prehistoric formation it insisted on standing out from the crowd. It’s also undeniably influenced by Anglo-tradition, from crumbling heritage forts to the homesickness cures of afternoon tea on beachside terraces, to even driving on the same side of the road.

The sun may be warmer and the rum somehow sweeter, but there’s still a sense of familiarity that runs through these streets that make it seem like a small yet welcoming extension of home. And just like home, Barbados may be small, but its character is titanic.
