When you think of the Caribbean, we think of beautiful white sandy beaches, palm trees, a peaceful atmosphere, and small cultural towns. What we have described pretty much sums up Barbados. We love Barbados and its capital Bridgetown, it is one of the safest Caribbean countries, most beautiful and one of the most accessible.
It is also home to many beautiful beach resorts, including the Fairmont, Sandy Lane and many more, making it a haven for celebrities. Although the Caribbean is not the cheapest place to visit, it is definitely worth the cost. What many people don’t realise, is that airlines offer some great deals to Barbados, and you can get cracking deals on beautiful villas and hotel rooms due low season.
