Barbados: Rub shoulders with other A-listers on a Virgin Holiday
Get your best pair of sunglasses ready. Rum punch in one hand, snorkel in the other, you’ll be on superstar form in this white-sanded paradise.
Monday 28 April 2014
Walk the beach
Barbados' coral reef-studded beaches attract celebs from all corners of the globe. Sink your toes into post-card perfect white sand. Marvel at the emerald seas (there is such thing.)
Sink into scuba
The closest you'll get to dunking your head in a giant tropical fish tank, peering through the ridiculously crystal clear waters of Barbados is like watching Finding Nemo in HD. From Hawksbill turtles to Sea Horses, you’ll be treated to an underwater experience like no other.
Party in St Lawrence
Shake what your mama gave ya. In St Lawrence, the party stops when you say so. A place where bars and nightclubs rub shoulders with old rum shops and karaoke dens, the locals will be queuing up to see your particular take on rhythmic gyration. How low will you go? That is the question.
Stay active all year round
There is always more to do in Barbados. The range of activities and events on offer is unparalleled and exceptionally diverse. Go swimming with the turtles or take a leisurely stroll through a beautiful botanical garden. Enjoy the musical but colourful spectacle that is the Crop Over Festival (July – August) or for those with sophisticated palates, why not head to the Food, Wine & Rum Festival (November) and indulge your senses. These experiences all combine to make the Barbados visitor experience one of the most envied in the world
