Luxury Holidays to Barbados with Elegant Resorts
Barbados is world-famous for being a jet-set escape, celebrities and the like lured by the promise of warm tropical weather, soft white sand beneath their feet, beautifully clear aquamarine water to swim in and a fabulous collection of luxury hotels, private villas and resorts to reside at on the Platinum Coast. However, this lush Caribbean island, measuring just 21 miles by 14 miles at its widest point, is so much more than its glamorous reputation, seventy miles of pristine palm tree-fringed beaches, Zagat-rated fine dining restaurants, challenging golf courses and designer shopping opportunities; at its heart, the characterful isle has been influenced by a blend of West African and British heritage.
This exceedingly friendly island of Barbados. A place where the whole family will feel completely at home amid warm, tropical surroundings. Reasons to come? So many! The choice of top-class hotels with umpteen facilities to entertain all ages for starters, not to mention the long list of things to see and do. Swim, sail, snorkel and paddle along the shores of the West Coast, known for its sheltered, sandy beaches. For brilliant walks and beachcombing, head to the wild and wonderful East Coast, waves crashing on empty beaches.
Discover the ‘Seven Wonders of Barbados’, including natural attractions like Harrison’s Cave and the Baobab Trees, possibly over 1,000 years old!
For fabulous family outings, rent a jeep and explore. Discover handsome old plantation houses, some open to the public, and British-style churches, with spires peeping out of lofty palms, along with lighthouses, castles, abbeys and brightly coloured chattel houses sitting snugly by elegant villas. Bridgetown and its Garrison, a UNESCO listed World Heritage Site, is definitely worth visiting and there are many other attractions and tours around the island and on the sea to enjoy, too.
