With an all-year-round tropical climate and relaxed atmosphere, Barbados is the ideal Caribbean destination for some fun in the sun. Bradt's Barbados offers extensive coverage of the famous and lesser-known sights, from the glamorous celebrity-studded Platinum Coast to the wild and untamed remoteness of the Atlantic east coast. In-depth advice on accommodation is included, from luxury villas to local guesthouses, and where and what to eat from gourmet beachside restaurants to Barbados street food and rum shops. Also covered are details of events that capture the culture, fun, music, food and drink of Bajan life, such as a Friday night 'lime' or 'fish-fry' and sports, festivals and the much-loved Barbados carnival. Whether it's beaches or duty-free shopping along Broad Street, nightlife or cliff-top hikes, traditional villages or local rum distilleries, Bradt's Barbados has got it covered.
