Beautiful Barbados

Image via Wikipedia : ....."It certainly has those features in abundance but what really shines are the cuisine (especially fish), the rum and the friendly people. We knew Barbados had world-class restaurants like The Cliff, a torch-lit, surfside masterpiece (a favourite of Elton John and other high rollers). But this small (just 430-square-kilometre) southern Caribbean island of 300,000 boasts more than 1,000 rum shops - small, often dilapidated shacks where locals and visitors gather for potent rum drinks, dollar-fifty Banks beer (the local favourite) and tasty Bajan food such as chicken and macaroni pie. At the tiny John Moore Bar on the resort-heavy west coast, we sat on rough benches enjoying outstanding rum punch while watching fishermen a few steps away clean their catch and listening to local men debate the affairs of the day."

Barbados: The Good-Time Caribbean Island

Image via Wikipedia HuffingtonPost: "Barbados is the good-time Island. This easternmost Caribbean isle is south of the hurricane belt (good weather), has average 84-88 degree temperatures (warm sun), and is inhabited by friendly people (fraternizing with locals is a joy). Tony resorts (from boutique to big) are plentiful, cultural sites abound (steeped in history), a variety of sports are accessible (you don't watch, you participate) and superb restaurants (world-class) mean you'll have a good time in Barbados."

Readers' tips: the Caribbean on a budget |...

The Guardian : "On the south coast of Barbados is a lovely little guesthouse called Dolphin Inn, run by a helpful Austrian woman called Iris. It is light, welcoming, roomy and, best of all, great value for money on an expensive island. An en suite double costs between £28 and £35 per night, and there's also a kitchen, dining area, living room with TV and verandah. It is just a stroll away from beautiful, secluded beaches and the bars and restaurants of St Lawrence Gap. Using the kitchen and taking the local 'reggae' buses helps to reduce the costs further. Make sure you visit the small beach near the Graeme Hall nature sanctuary; we watched two turtles swimming in the sea there."
