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.

 

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

Relax you’ve got a plane to catch

On a Virgin Holiday you can fly direct from Gatwick 7 days a week and Manchester 2 days a week on award winning Virgin Atlantic.

Our v-rooms are exclusive to Virgin Holidays

Wave goodbye to crowded airport terminals and start your holiday in style. At both Gatwick and Manchester our v-rooms mean you can rock up and chill out in total style before your flight. The v-rooms are stylish private airport lounges that belong to us. And they're just for you. Food, drinks, Wi-Fi, papers, stuff for the kids - you want it, you got it. And almost everything is free (except alcohol).

Discover more from a Stay & Cruise holiday with Virgin Holidays Cruises

Make more of your holiday by adding a cruise to your stay in Barbados. Wherever in the Caribbean floats your boat, we’ll find the perfect cruise holiday that’s just right for you.

Virgin Holidays Concierge Service makes the most of your time away

Before you jet off, the Virgin Holidays Concierge Team in resort will give you a call before your holiday so if you’ve got a special request, want to pre-book a trip or just want a little more information – just ask!

With its sun, sea, white sands as well as hospitable culture and traditional food and drink, Barbados makes a lasting impression on visitors. If you can force yourself to put down the rum punch and drag yourself away from the poolside lounger (yes, we know its an effort), you can discover the local flavour of the surrounding villages.
