Barbados is famous for its epic white sand beaches and pop princess, Rihanna. If we can drag ourselves away from the sparkling Caribbean waters, we love to explore the island from Ragged Point Lighthouse to wandering the streets of colourful Bridgetown.
Travel Upper Class to begin your break in style with a pre-departure, award-winning cocktail and spa treatment at the Clubhouse at London Heathrow.

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
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.
