Things to do in Barbados
If you like your meals to be accompanied by stunning views of the ocean during your Barbados holidays, Champers in Christ Church is a must-visit. The food is almost as sensational as the coastal panoramas which are waiting to greet you. For something a little quirkier, try Surfer’s Café in Oistins, where the food, but not the location, is straightforward. Sampling the local seafood is one of the finest things to do in Barbados, so if you’re in Bridgetown, be sure to order one of the specialities at Cuz’s Fish Shack. For something a little different, the Sahara Arabic Grill is also worth a visit. This part of the world also boasts some of the best cuisine across the globe, with world-class restaurants and rustic beach bars showcasing a medley of flavours and delicious dishes. Influenced by the food and traditions of England, Portugal, Spain and West Africa, you’ll find fusion food like no other. Sample traditionally cooked Pepperpot, a hearty spicy pork dish popular with the locals or try Bajan Candied Sweet Potatoes for an authentic taste of Barbados – delicious!
With cuisine this varied and delicious, an luxury hotel in Barbados with a stunning menu can help you through the dizzying amount of dishes on offer. If you’re keen on luxury and Caribbean food, look no further.
You're just a short flight away from Caribbean rum and the best nights of your holiday. Pick from a range of hotels, next to places where the nights come alive, or where you can sip the rum in peace before heading out to town. The nightlife on Barbados has something to suit all ages, tastes and budgets. Evening cruises are perfect for those occasions when all you want is a relaxing meal and some spectacular scenery. As the sun goes down, there is no finer way to see the real beauty during your idyllic Barbados holiday. Evening entertainment at some hotels will capture all the local Bajan flair in a luxury setting. Live music provides the background to many great Barbados evenings, so be sure to settle in to a comfortable seat with a cold drink and get ready for some tunes. Bay Street in Bridgetown is home to several venues, many of which specialise in reggae and calypso. Good times are always on the menu here. You will also find a great selection of dinner shows to give your evening meals an entertaining twist. Venues include Lobster Alive and Harbour Lights, both of which are in the St. Michael area.
