There is a multitude of reasons to love Barbados. The history, the charming people, the tropical weather, the laidback lifestyle, the Caribbean island vibe, Cropover Carnival and even the hot sauce but what struck me the most? Why the beaches and food off course! That’s all I need to say. That’s all I want to say.
Barbados has some of the most scenic beaches in the world and it has become quite the culinary haven, from local joints to fancy restaurants. With tourism being the country’s main income, there’s no wonder they have upped their variety and service to draw more international tourists to the island.
No words are needed to describe how breathtakingly beautiful these beaches are in Barbados but I was in love with the idea of free wifi on the beaches. Yes on the beaches! Barbados sure is doing something right there…I can only imagine how many vacationers upload photos instantly to their social media just to make all their friends jealous!
Here’s are a few reasons to add Barbados on your bucketlist!
Beautiful sunset over Dover Beach, it does not get better than this!
Scenic peaceful views at the beach.
The mesmerising waters of Dover Beach on a typical sunny day.
Crane Beach was voted one of the best beaches in the world, it truly is unforgettable.
Letting loose on Worthing Beach.
No bathing but taking in the lovely views up north in Speightstown.
Relaxing on Turtle Beach…such beautiful waters.
I’m a spicy food sort of person and Bajans seems to love it that way too. Although there were quite a variety of restaurant choices, we wanted to try the local foods – all tasty, delicious and left us wanting more!
First time having fried Flying Fish sandwich and wrap (with hot sauce off course) during lunch at Dover Beach Hotel. Both superb and delicious.
Local fried fishcakes (made with salted fish in the batter) are popular all over the island, served with hot sauce and I was I heaven! :)
A day well spent at The Crane Hotel. L’Azure served a scrumptious local style chicken soup and grilled chicken with pineapple salsa sandwich. All complimented by the picturesque view of Crane Beach.
The Chinese food was equally amazing, we had it twice. Huge portion sizes though from this lovely Chinese restaurant in St Lawrence Gap!
Surprisingly fantastic Mexican food at Café Sol and Margarita Bar in the St Lawrence Gap area. One of the best Mexican I’ve ever had in fact.
BOGO Drinks at Café Sol and Margarita Bar…note the selection of hot sauces to accompany dinner!
Waffles made and served with love at Bliss Café, the homemade juices were a favourite of ours too!
