The beaches are breathtaking
Being an island, Barbados is surrounded by miles of coastline that’s nothing but spellbinding. The golden sand glitters under the sparkling sun and the sea is as blue as the cloudless sky. And, with the weather being blissful virtually all-year round you can spend every hour possible in the great outdoors building sand castles, splashing in the balmy waters and running beneath the palm trees.
It’s great for snorkelling
As much of the island is ringed by coral reefs, it’s the perfect place to try a spot of scuba diving or snorkelling.

It’s great for intrepid explorers
If you love nothing more than pulling on your hiking boots and heading off on an adventure, you’ll appreciate the hillier inner regions of Barbados which make for great treks. While much of the terrain is flat, central Barbados offers numerous peaks and troughs allowing you to see the island from many different heights and angles while getting your heart pumping at the same time. Walking tours take place regularly throughout the year and are easily accessible from most resorts.
So there you have it, five great reasons why Barbados is the perfect holiday destination for you and your family. If you do decide to jet off into all-year-round sun, however, book in good time to ensure you get the hotel/resort of your dreams.
