Barbados is unique, melding English traditions and Caribbean style. Often called "Little England", the island is home to centuries old stone buildings and churches. If not for swaying palm trees, you might be convinced you were in a London neighborhood. The people of Barbados are nicknamed "Bajuns". They are proud of their English heritage and enjoy cricket and afternoon tea. People still wear light jackets for dinner, observe traditional English manners and speak with more of a British accent than the pure "West-Indies" accent found elsewhere in the Caribbean. Bajuns are outgoing and welcoming to visitors from around the world. In fact, one of the reasons so many people enjoy going to Barbados is the overwhelming feeling that their hotel is part of the "neighborhood" rather than just a resort.
The beaches of Barbados range from long, narrow strands of sand lapped by calm waters to rockbound, cove-type beaches that are scenic but pounded by high Atlantic surf.
Cuisine on the island is drawn mainly from African and English influences but one can discover a great variety of establishments featuring Italian, French, Spanish, East Indian and Chinese culinary treats.
Visit a quaint windmill, stand in awe 800 feet above the Atlantic in a 17th century Abbey, or sample some of the best rum in the Caribbean.
Let the gentle trade winds take you to Barbados ...just beyond your imagination.
