Explore Barbados

Taste the real Barbados

Head to Oistins for the Fish Fry, a lip-smackingly good feast of (you guessed it) fish, freshly cooked at a jumble of beachside stalls. Friday night is party night. Head to our blog for more tips on eating in Barbados.

And they're off

Take your family and join the locals for horse racing at the Garrison Savannah. Soak up the atmosphere in the stands, or chill out at the side of the track. If you're looking for ideas for places to stay, we've got you covered.

Go deep beneath the surface

Enjoy a tram ride through Harrison's Cave, a jaw-droppingly spectacular limestone cavern. Just make sure you've got a hand to hold for the bit when they switch the lights off.

Get busy in Bridgetown

There's a lot more to Bridgetown than duty-free shopping. Spend the day sightseeing and hanging out with the locals, then soak up the vibes when the sun goes down. For an offbeat day out, check out our guide to the island adventure safari.

Have a Bajan adventure

Make like an explorer with a National Trust hike through the Barbados most people don't get to see. If you're feeling daring, you can even do it by moonlight. We've got plenty more tips for seeing the best of Barbados on our blog.
