Escape to.. Beautiful Barbados

Not really feeling the pumping vibe for Carnival this year? Or maybe that has already been ticked off your list and you want a new adventure. Imagine a relaxing day, laid up on a white, sandy beach on one of Barbados’ golden coasts? Now, why imagine when that can be you and your friends soaking up the sun with a refreshing glass of rum punch?

In March, there is lots to do in Bimshire.

Although the nights may be slightly cooler, on a Friday night the heat is turned up with loads of live-music at bars along the south-coast Boardwalk, St. Lawrence Gap and in Holetown on the west coast. On March 2nd there is the famous Sandy Lane Gold Cup Thoroughbred horseracing event attracting top breeders from across the globe. This is an event you do not want to miss. Even if you watch from the outside track, the energy is spectacular… pretty comparable to the horses. If you do decide to partake, we would suggest some elegant attire and maybe a hat fit for the races.

 Barbados from the sea is simply stunning. There are a number of catamarans which you can charter either with others or on your own. The Cats all serve either a scrumptious bajan lunch or sunset cruises with cocktails and canapes. Both sails allows you to go for swims with the turtles or just a nice soak in the sea.

 A trip to Barbados isn’t complete without experiencing the magic of Oistins Fish Fry. If you’re looking for an awesome local experience, the best fish including lobster, lion fish and seacat all grilled right in front of you, cold beers, live music and local stalls selling trinkets and souvenirs, you’ll want to add this to your itinerary for your upcoming trip.
