Fancy a bit of English flair with your Caribbean holiday? Then Barbados has your name on it. It's idyllic for a diverse yachting vacation, offering great shopping, colonial buildings and one of the Western Hemisphere’s oldest synagogues.
And that’s before you even get to its phenomenal beaches, scuba diving and designer golf courses perched next to the ocean.
Located in the eastern Caribbean, Barbados is an independent island nation within the British Commonwealth, and so has a strong English flavour. You can even take afternoon tea and watch some cricket (the national sport).
But don’t despair if cricket is not your thing: you can watch some horse racing, indulge in duty-free shopping in Bridgetown, play golf on any of the four ocean-side designer-planned golf courses, take in live music, or dance the night away at sizzling night clubs with top DJs… And when you need some downtime, taste some delicious coconut turnovers (a cross between are bun and a snack cake, and a favourite in Barbados), go fishing, swim, dive, or even learn to surf in Oistins (in the southern portion of the parish of Christ Church).
If your tastes lean to jewellery and gem shopping, then head to Broad Street in Bridgetown, the Bond Street of Barbados. Here you can pick up prized Colombian emeralds at excellent prices at Colombian Emeralds International.
