Things to do (optional)


Explore the island's beautiful coastline with the best view possible. Catamaran cruises are a wonderful way to spend the day soaking up the warm Caribbean sunshine. Cruises include drinks, cocktails, and a buffet-style lunch. Take a dip, snorkel, and swim with the turtles during the catamaran's stops along the shoreline or simply enjoy listening to the waves or music while you sunbathe on deck.


A favourite surfing destination for many of the pros, the Barbados coastline offers an array of exciting reef and shore breaks that can be enjoyed year-round.

Visit Crane beach

Crane beach is located on the southeast coast of the island and is arguably one of the best in the world. Located below a cliff, it’s much more accessible than it seems and makes for a great afternoon with family and friends.

Visit Farley Hill Park

Farley Hill Park, set within 17 acres above the sea level, provides an excellent atmosphere for picnics. The grounds contain well-manicured lawns, tropical gardens, a play park, and the impressive ruins of the Farley Hill great house.

Visit Hunte’s gardens

These picturesque gardens located on the northeast part of the island provide a unique experience for visitors to enjoy the lush foliage and vibrant tropical flora set within a natural gully. The multi-level garden connected by easy-to-walk pathways, creates a magical setting filled with private corners, beautiful statues, and classical music floating on the breeze.

Visit JuJu’s beach bar

Juju’s beach bar is one of the best spots for a relaxing day with toes in sand and cocktail in hand. It’s a fun hang out for tourists and locals alike, offering a delicious selection of food from the beach side barbecues and cold drinks. The spot is ideal for swimming and boats often moor offshore on weekends providing a bit of a party atmosphere. There is also a nice boutique next door selling women’s beach attire and accessories.

Visit Nidhe Israel synagogue

The Nidhe Israel synagogue, originally built in 1654, is the oldest synagogue in the Western Hemisphere. It has been beautifully restored and is adjacent to the Nidhe Israel Museum, tracing Jewish history in Barbados and its contribution to Barbadian society.

Visit St. Nicholas Abbey

This wonderful plantation house built in the 7th century, has been beautifully restored and stands as one of three remaining Jacobean style mansions in the western hemisphere. You may explore the house, surrounding gardens, and working sugar cane mill and distillery.

Visit the east coastline

The east coastline of the island is on the Atlantic Ocean providing quite a contrast to the Caribbean coastline on the west. With dramatic cliffs, long stretches of sand, and often epic waves, the rugged east coast is a magnet for surfers but its abundance of rock pools make it a favorite with families too.

Visit the George Washington house

This historic plantation house, also known as “Bush Hill House”, was home to a young George Washington and his ailing brother, Lawrence, in 1751. Barbados is the only country George Washington visited outside of the United States.

Visit Welchman gall gully

This beautiful gully, located in St. Thomas, was once part of a plantation owned by William Asygell Williams, who planted exotic trees in the gully over 200 years ago. It is said that the grapefruit, which originated in Barbados, hails from Welchman Hall Gully.
