No two days need be the same on a villa holiday in Barbados. The city of Bridgetown is the cultural epicentre of the island. Boasting UNESCO World Heritage Site status, the streets teem with candy-coloured colonial houses, craft markets and the excellent Barbados Museum.
Beyond the capital, discover the island’s sweet side on a sugar plantation tour at St Nicholas Abbey, enjoy a jet ski ride around the coast, or soak up Barbados’ best panorama at Highland viewing point.
The ultimate treat for animal-lovers is a catamaran cruise to snorkel alongside sea turtles. Most excursions include lunch and, if you’re lucky, a rum punch or two! Prefer dry land? Meet the monkeys at Barbados Wildlife Reserve or lose yourself in a riot of colourful flowers at Andromeda Botanic Gardens.
