Barbados has been a consistent favourite with British visitors and is also known as 'Little England'. It is blessed with the best sunshine record in the Caribbean, hundreds of soft white sand beaches, and some of the most elegant hotels. Barbados is also an island of great natural beauty and beyond its white sand beaches and turquoise seas you will find colonial plantation houses, landscaped gardens and hidden caves to explore. For nature, hiking, plants, culture and natural history Welchman Hall Gully in the parish of St. Thomas is a must. For those who enjoy something more active, there are an abundance of facilities available in Barbados that suit all ages and abilities. Enjoy a sunset catamaran cruise along the west coast, play a round of golf, do a bit of duty free shopping in Bridgetown or pay a visit to the Kensington Oval to watch a game of cricket. The people of Barbados are renowned for their friendliness and everything here is geared to help the tourist relax. Barbados is a must on any holiday to paradise.
