When you opt for a holiday in Barbados, you get much more than just a break on exotic sands. It may be a small island in the midst of the Caribbean Sea, but it has so many different facets that will both surprise and excite you. When you book one of the Elegant Resorts luxury Barbados holidays, you open your mind to the magic that the Caribbean possesses; from the smooth, warm sands that sink between your toes to the azure waters that lap up on the shores, relaxation is key here, no matter what you choose to endeavour.
First thing’s first when booking your Barbadian break – you need to choose where on the island to stay. The west coast, for example, is where you will find many of the luxury resorts and first class restaurants, but if you’re looking for a more authentic and rugged side to Barbados, the east coast is the place to be. The eastern shores are popular with the hip and cool – the surfers with their sunkissed bods and the sunbathers who wear the best shades on the market. If you’re hoping to partake in some surfing, before chilling out with an ice cold drink at one of the beachfront shacks, head for the east for a while. Meanwhile, the south coast is where the glitz can be found, offering a whole host of top notch nightlife opportunities for you to enjoy after dusk.
If you can peel yourself away from your chosen resort, there are plenty of excursions and sights to see while you’re there that will help to introduce you to the island’s beauty and heritage. Bridgetown, its capital, is well worth visiting, with its various cultural offerings, boutiques and eateries ready to welcome you. The Jacobean mansions, including St Nicholas Abbey, are also worth exploring.
Whether it’s water-sports, golf, local culture or fine fare that takes your fancy, Barbados is a melting pot of adventure, beauty and tranquility. See for yourself with a well-rounded luxury trip to this stunning Caribbean island.
