Barbados Romantic Getaways

Bordered by the Caribbean Sea to the west and south and framed by limestone cliffs and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, Barbados is a tropical treat of uber-luxe opulence and friendly folks. Appealing to a diverse clientele from around the word, the easternmost island in the Caribbean is revered for its natural beauty, spirited cricket games that are played every Sunday in neighborhood parks, gourmet dining that is amongst the finest in the world and an impressive array of resorts, hotels and villas that take great pride in hosting weddings. The only island with a Zagat rated restaurant guide and affectionately dubbed Little England, Barbados has long been a favourite of honeymooners from all corners of the globe.

Formed by the collision of the Atlantic crystal and Caribbean plates resulting in a volcanic eruption, Barbados is an island of great contrasts from the serene waters of the Caribbean Sea to the Atlantic coastline that is coveted by surfers and sailors. Meadows of golden sugar cane and historic plantation houses are a short walk from the bustling port of Bridgetown with its full range of resorts, quaint bed & breakfasts, swanky villas and self-contained apartments. From the sweet notes of Calypso to rubbing shoulders with the pleasant locals and sampling traditional fare like fish cakes and a frosty Banks beer, Barbados is chockablock with fun from sunrise to sunset.

For couples who like to time their weddings with an island event, the big tickets are the Barbados Jazz Festival every January and Crop Over that heats up July with music celebrating the end of the annual sugar cane harvest.
