Beautiful Barbados

The Banks Beer Brewery located at Collymore Ro...Image via Wikipediatelegraphjournal.com : ....."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."
