Barbados is a tropical island in the Caribbean with English as its official language. Enjoy the island’s year-round warm, sunny weather. Average daytime high is 86 F (30 C) and days are generally dry. Even during the wet season, from June to November, any rain showers are typically short-lived; wait an hour and you’ll enjoy some of the island’s 3,000 hours of annual sunshine.
By law, all beaches in Barbados are public. This means you’ll find many points of access to reach the beautiful beaches on every shore along the 60-mile (97-kilometer) coastline. If you’re bringing a young family, visit the tranquil sandy-bottomed bays along the west coast. Move to the south to windsurf and bodysurf in the big waves of Miami Beach. Head east and north to see really big waves crashing onto the rugged coral shoreline. Surfers flock to Bathsheba, but it’s best not to swim here. Be aware that nude bathing is illegal on Barbados beaches.
The sun and fun of Barbados draws many couples for a relaxing, romantic vacation. For an ultra-romantic trip, get married while you’re here! Unlike many other Caribbean islands, Barbados has no minimum stay required for getting a marriage application. If you’re divorced or widowed, you will need certified copies of the divorce decree or death certificate. Hire one of the many wedding planners to take care of all the details so you can relax until the event.
When you’re ready for a break from the sun, explore the island’s other attractions. Bridgetown, the island’s capital, is home to historic George Washington House. Scenic Welchman Hall Gully and Barbados Wildlife Reserve , offering a zoo-like experience, are in the north.
Fly to the island from many international destinations. Grantley Adams Airport is just 10 miles (16 kilometers) from Bridgetown. Use taxis, buses or even helicopter shuttle services to get to points of interest. Alternatively, rent a car from local companies. Remember to drive on the left side of the road.
