Bridgetown Airport

Airport Car Hire

Barbados is an ever-popular Caribbean destination and is particularly popular amongst Brits as it is a former British colony. Barbados is still a dependency of the Crown, at least until November 2021 when they plan to become completely independent and remove the Queen as their Head of State. If you're wondering what the best things to see and do on Barbados are, here's a quick list: 

  • Scuba-diving. You can do all kinds of water sports in Barbados, but nothing beats the amazing scuba diving opportunities that you find here. From training courses for beginners to challenging dives for pros, the ocean and its flora and fauna are fascinating to explore. Many of the best dives are located near Bridgetown, in Oistins and in Speightstown. 
  • Andromeda Gardens. There are many botanic gardens in the highlands of Central Eastern Barbados, with Andromeda Gardens arguably the most spectacular ones. Go on a long walk and explore the fascinating species of plants, flowers, birds, and animals that live here, many of them endemic to the island.
  • Harrison’s Cave. Famous for its mysterious caverns, stalactites and stalagmites, and accesses by a subterranean tramway, Harrison’s Cave is one of the most impressive landmarks of Barbados. Located in the uplands of Barbados, Harrison’s Cave is just around 30 minutes drive northeast of Bridgetown
