Barbados is a tropical island and as such is home to an incredible number of some of the world’s most beautiful beaches.
The west side, which is the calm Caribbean side of the island, is home to some of the most beautiful, picture perfect, white sand beaches that you’ll find anywhere with turquoise water that gently laps the shore.
The east coast, which is the Atlantic side, features beaches that are quite wide and wind-blown. Here you find surfers enjoying the waves which can be wild.
The south side also has many beautiful sandy beaches. The shorelines protected by coral reefs. Many of these beaches are very lively so many of the watersports are active here.
The north side of the island has very high sandstone cliffs that rise out of the sea. If you explore a bit you’ll find a few sheltered coves.
There’s nothing more breathtaking than a Caribbean sunset. The intense colours of the skies and the incredible reflections on the majestic Caribbean.
