Barbados in the Caribbean

Barbados is the most easterly island of the Lesser Antilles. The 430 square kilometer coral island, pushed out of sea by volcanic activity millions of years ago, is circled by coral reefs with its stunning underwater world which fall in a series of “terraces” in the west and go into an incline in the east. The north shore of the island is lined with jagged coral cliffs which collide with the relentless breakers. Within the Barbados coral core there are many caves and underground lakes which provide an excellent supply of drinking water.

The adventurous East Coast

The east coast of Barbados is rugged and untamed, a paradise for nature lovers. Here you find unspoiled beaches, massive limestone bolders, fishing villages far away from any hussle and bussle. Bathsheba in the center of the east coast is home of the famous Soup Bowl inviting Surfer’s and beach walker’s alike. In November, when the rollers are raging, the Barbados Independence Surf Festival takes place, bringing top surfers from around the globe to the island to claim one of the crown jewels of international surfing.

The calm West Coast

 Different from the untamed beaches on the East Coast are the beaches on the West and South coast are calmer. The area around Silver Sands on the South Coast is best for Kite Surfing. Near the shore find stand-up-paddler in their zone.
The West Coast of Barbados is also known as the ‘Platinum Coast’ or ‘Gold Coast’ and is great for snorkeling or swimming with turtles.

The lively South Coast

 The South Coast is known for its wide beaches, simpler accommodations and most notoriously the lively nightlife. The west and south coast is popular for scuba diving as well.
