A fantastic destination for winter sun, the Caribbean island of Barbados is an ideal beach holiday for couples and families. Pair its gorgeous coastline with some fantastic food and brilliant adventure activities and you’ve got the perfect Caribbean escape.

You’d better get used to living life in the slow lane, as holidays in Barbados move at a pleasingly relaxed pace. Spend days lounging on the beach or by the luxury hotel pool, snorkel with colourful marine creatures in the calm seas or stroll among lush gardens to find shade from the sizzling sun.

Bajan Culture in Barbados

This is a destination that celebrates its heritage and culture. Get into the swing of things on a night out in Bridgetown. You’ll hear tuk bands playing infectious rhythms as you sip rum cocktails and eat the boldly flavoured cuisine.

Your guide to Barbados holidays

Out & About
Traditional dishes Barbados

Traditional dishes Barbados

Bajan cuisine is bold, with influences from Africa, Portugal, Britain, India and even Ireland. Try some of the top dishes on your holiday to Barbados.

  • The Barbadian national dish is a must-try. Made up of cornmeal and okra served with fried flying fish in a spicy gravy, it’s a comforting, filling meal.
  • The unofficial national dish here is macaroni pie, which has cheddar cheese and added ketchup and mustard for punchy flavour.
  • A classic Saturday Bajan lunch is pudding and souse. Enjoy pickled pork with steamed sweet potatoes cooked with onions, salt and pepper.
  • Don’t miss cutters, the perfect beach snack. Essentially a sandwich filled with either egg, fish, cheese or ham, cutters are constructed using moreish salt bread and Bajan hot sauce.
  • For dessert order conkies. This sweet cornmeal-based patty is steamed in a banana leaf and contains sweet potato and coconut.
Food and drink in Barbados

Food and drink in Barbados

With food from around the world on offer, including its own Barbadian or Bajan cuisine, you’ll eat well on your Barbados holiday.

  • An essential foodie experience in Barbados is at Oistins Friday Night Fish Fry, where party vibes and plenty of rum make for an entertaining evening out. Try fresh tuna, flying fish and more.
  • You can hardly avoid trying rum here, as cocktails come laced with the stuff and distilleries abound. Visit Mount Gay, the oldest, or Foursquare for tastings and tours.
  • For a refreshing tipple in the middle of the day, don’t miss a taste of mauby – an unusual drink made of mauby bark, cinnamon and aniseed.
  • With its English heritage, afternoon tea is a must on your Barbados holiday. Try a sweet feast at the regal Fairmont Royal Pavilion hotel.
  • While lots of the best food in Barbados comes from its beach shacks and bars, fine-dining at The Cliff is a must. Breathtaking views over the ocean are paired with fresh seafood and expertly prepared meat dishes.
