Cliff Richard: Barbados... it's my No1 ....

The Sun |Travel: "SIR Cliff Richard has been going to Barbados for almost as long as he has topped the charts. He loves the place so much he bought a villa - to the delight of Tony Blair, who has holidayed there. Here, the singer tells us what's great about the island - and gives tips on how to make the most of it.

I'VE owned my villa on Barbados for the best part of ten years and never grow tired of coming back to escape the British winter."

The east coast of Barbados is just a short drive but a world away from the hectic tourist areas

On the wilder side: "It is best to explore Barbados by car - a rental is easily arranged in advance for pickup on arrival at Grantley Adams International Airport. That accomplished, my wife, Mary Hughson, and I headed east from the airport on the main road - in the opposite direction taken by most tourists.

After reaching the deserted lighthouse atop a cliff at Ragged Point on the southeast corner of the island, we swung north along the Atlantic coast, where rolling waves crash onto windswept beaches. We were headed to the small, east coast community of Cattlewash and the region's largest beach. From there, we planned to explore along the East Coast Road (or Ermy Bourne Highway), occasionally veering inland to check out tropical destinations."

Barbados is perfect place to take a ride on the wild side

The Examiner "Our guide on Barbados, Tammy, called the dune buggy ride a great back massage. It was more like Darth Vader in a race car.

At least that’s what my husband Larry and I looked like as we donned full-face racing helmets and reflective sunglasses, seated ourselves 10 inches off the ground in a two-person mini-buggy, and lurched down dirt paths along the North Point of Barbados. It was the perfect location for a hotrod experience. Waves crash along shore and reefs as North Coast meets Atlantic Ocean. It’s one of the most thrilling experiences you can have on this Caribbean island."

Bajan heroes save visitors

Nation News "WHEN VICTOR LEWIS looked the visitors in the eyes last Wednesday, he held their hands and said: 'Make sure you spend the rest of your lives together, because you could have just died together.'

Lewis, a regular sea-bather at Bathsheba, St Joseph, saw the two people out to sea in distress.

What Lewis didn't know at the time was that these two were newlyweds, and were only two days into their honeymoon.

'They were on the beach with another couple who genuinely could not attempt to save them and I saw this white lady running for help, while the man stayed in the shallow water encouraging them to hold on."
