Barbados, more than a tourist resort

Canada.com The name alone conjures up those "S's" that we all long for during the long, dark, cold days of winter: sun, sea, and surf. (The other "S" is frankly up to you.)

The island, one of the original vacation paradises, has them all: the brilliant sun that seems to shine every day without fail and offers spectacular sunsets every night; beaches that wrap much of the coastline; and surf, gentle on the west side, pounding on the east, that offers the perfect playground for all - from the very young splashing in the salty sea for the first time, to snorkellers, surfers, sailers and to the very old soothing their bones in nature's mega bath. That's the Barbados of winter dreams.

And it doesn't disappoint.
