Barbados

The Caribbean’s ‘Little England’, Barbados is charming, famous for its easy-going calypso culture, hip-swaying music and vibrant nightlife, all fused with age-old English customs and traditions. The capital, Bridgetown, is a great place to explore the melting pot of cultures that have given Barbados its own unique identity. Initially settled by West Indians, the town takes its name from a rickety bridge built over the river.
Barbados has also come to be recognised as the true birthplace of rum. Visitors to the Mount Gay Rum Distillery can learn about the refining, aging, blending and bottling process of their popular rum.
Barbados has no shortage of spots to soak up the sun, with over 100 kilometres of beautiful beaches. Crane Beach, on the island’s east coast, is often named among the world’s top 10 beaches.
Whether it is a day relaxing on a beautiful white sandy beach, a nice rum punch or a day out fishing, Barbados is certainly a place to forget the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Cricket

Cricket is the national sport and watching a game, whether it be live or on television, is a great way to immerse yourself in the culture. There are a number of teams in Barbados and it shouldn't be too hard to find a game, even if it is an 'international' featuring the West Indies Team.
