Love & Romance in Barbados: Five Romantic Things To Do

Island Safari

Take an Island Safari tour aboard a comfy Land Rover to view the highest cliff on the island where, as island legend tells it, Jim Hackleton rode his horse off the edge crashing into the sea after his true love rebuffed him. Professional guides take adventurous tourists through the gullies, forests, back roads and remote bays explaining the folklore and foliage of the island.

Sunset Tee Time

Renowned for its many green courses, teeing off at sunrise is a favorite pastime of twosomes spending quality time together. Championship courses include the 18-hole Barbados Golf Club with two lakes and coral waste bunkers, The Royal Westmoreland, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., that sits on some of the island's priciest real estate and the swanky Sandy Lane Resort where a trio of greens invite with two 18-hole Tom Fazio courses and a nine-hole links course.

East Coast Drive

Take a drive to Bathsheba on the east coast to frolic along miles of untouched beach on the rugged Atlantic shoreline. For surfers, The Soup Bowl comes alive when the swells from the northeast break over a shallow reef to create the perfect barrel or 'tube' those surfers live for. Also on the east coast, vistas atop Cherry Tree Hill are tres romantic when the sun slips behind the horizon.

Barbados Beaches

Barefoot and blissful, sultry sunset beach strolls under millions of glistening stars set to a chorus of tree frogs is simply spectacular. Wide and wind-blown, beaches along the east coast are pounded by the Atlantic Ocean and popular with surfers. On the calmer west coast, Mullins Beach, Church Point and Paynes Bay invite sunbathers and swimmers. Unbroken stretches of white sand on Accra Beach, Casuarina Beach and Silver Sands are ripe for topping up a tan, reading a novel, spotting celebs like pop diva Rihanna who grew up near Accra Beach or taking a dip in the refreshing waves.

The Cliff Restaurant

Fall in love again at The Cliff Restaurant perched above the lapping waves of the Caribbean Sea and lit by fiery lanterns that burn brightly above the tables. The recipient of umpteen culinary awards, the multi-tiered eatery is popular for Chef Paul Owen's menu that salutes the flavors of the Caribbean, Europe and Asia. A favorite of hip-hop A-listers like Jay Z and Beyonc', the ultra-trendy restaurant boasts an impressive wine cellar and a sprightly cocktail lounge that is perfect for people-watching and martini sipping.
