Barbados

Barbados sits on the eastern edge of the Caribbean facing the Atlantic Ocean around 100 miles due east of St Lucia. It is amongst the most popular destinations in the region and the most British, it's colonial ties dating back to 1627 and maintained following independence in 1966. Barbados is home to many of the Caribbeans finest hotels and resorts set upon its enviable white and pink coral sand beaches. The majority of these are located within the West Coast parishes of St. James and St. Peter and in Christ Church parish on the south coast. Tourism facilities are more densely concentrated and livelier in the central and southern districts and increasingly more private and secluded to the north of Bridgetown, the islands's capital. Popular attractions in the south include the St. Lawrence Gap area, awash with restaurants, bars and nightlife and the small town of Oistin's, noted for the Friday evening outdoor fish fry and barbecue tradition when it seems like the whole island is in attendance. Relatively compact in size with an extensive road and highway network, Barbados is easy to explore at leisure by hire car.
