Barbados

4.3
Little England
Plan a vacation on the small Caribbean island of Barbados and experience its rich history and vibrant culture. Affectionately called "Little England," the island retains a noticeable British influence in its lively culture, visible especially in sport, religion, and the charming British style buildings with a Caribbean flair. On a tour of Barbados you can lounge on sandy beaches, participate in world-class surfing, roam the World Heritage-listed capital, or explore the lush island interior. When on the island, don't forget to sample its world-famous rum and the signature local dish, the flying fish. To arrange what you want to do in Barbados, use our Barbados trip planner.
