Best Time To Visit: All year, but November to June offers warm, calm sailing conditions with little rain.
Key Cruising Areas: Barbados is the perfect start for a Caribbean cruise. Explore the Leeward islands or the further Antilles.
Don’t Miss: The Caribbean is famous for its rum, and nowhere less so than Barbados. As well as an essential element of tropical cocktails, rum is a part of the history and culture of the island. Visit the prestigious 300-year-old Mount Gay distillery for a glimpse into the history of this industry, with tasters!
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: Barbados may be the best place to eat in the Caribbean with many dining options including high-end restaurants. The excellent Cliff restaurant is dramatically perched above a glittering cove, with beautiful décor and exquisite food. Try the shrimp ravioli, but save space for one of their famous desserts.
