Top Things To Do In Barbados

The top things to do in Barbados will surely make your trip in this island in the Caribbean an interesting and unforgettable one.  Located east of Windward islands, Barbados was also referred to as the “Little Britain” as it has been a British colony for a long time.  The island of Barbados is known for its pristine beaches, rich marine life and probably the mystery revolving around the mysterious moving coffins in the cemetery of the Christ Church Parish cemetery.

Fun Things To Do In Barbados

But whether there’s a truth to that legend or not, there’s plenty of interesting things you can do in Barbados, even if you’re just staying for a day.  Here are some of the top things to do on Barbados holidays:

Catamaran Cruises.  Swim with the turtles, or discover the underwater paradise of the island’s rich coral reefs in a Catamaran cruise.  The cruises may include transportation to and from the harbour as well as a buffet lunch and drinks.  But if you’re on a strict budget and you only want to experience snorkelling with the turtles, there’s an economy version of the usually expensive Catamaran cruise where buffet lunches and drinks are skipped.  Either way, you can have an awesome and unforgettable experience swimming with the turtles.

Go caving.   One of the top things to do in Barbados is exploring the famous Harrison’s Cave.  The cave is known for its crystallized limestone and pure, sparkling waters which are partly responsible for the formation of the cave’s stalactites and stalagmites.  But do not touch the stalactites and stalagmites!  A single smear will take hundreds of years to disappear from the stalactite or stalagmite’s surface.

Sample the local cuisine.  If you’re only touring Barbados for a day, then sample their local cuisine while you still have a chance.  Taste local dishes such as flying fish and cou-cou, breadfruit, macaroni pie and a whole lot of others.

Enjoy the beach.  Beach bums and lazy vacationers may not like the prospect of indulging in strenuous sports and activities, so hitting the beach may be a better option.  Barbados is blessed with miles of white sand beaches with azure waters where you can just sit back, relax and soak in all that Barbados sun.
