Swim with turtles!

swim-turtles-barbados

Home to the cute and sociable Hawksbill and Leatherback Turtles. They like to stay in the same places and follow a steady routine so remember to ask the locals where to go to swim with them. Or you can take a Sail boat day tour.

Six acres of begonias, bougainvillea, hibiscus, cacti and many more exotic flowers and trees in Andromeda Botanic Gardens!

Go Caving! 

If you’re looking for a nice break from the beautiful beaches, this is definitely a great idea.

Harrison’s Cave

It’s an immense underground cave stream system with large caverns, crystallized limestones and deep pools of crystal clear water. They offer tours for all ages.

Fish frying

The Oistins Friday night Fish fry is a must for those looking to experience an authentic Bajan experience.

Every Friday around 6 pm, locals and visitors go to the historical town of Oistins to eat freshly cooked seafood (tuna, swordfish, marlin, mahi-mahi, flying fish, crab, lobster), sample the local rum and listen to music (sometimes even Live music). It’s a great place to have an informal evening.

Rum tasting

You can taste the local rum all around the island but if you want to learn all about their signature rum, visit Mount Gay.

They’ll tell you all about the historic origins of the brand and their distillation, ageing and blending techniques. Plus, free tasting at the end of the tour!
