Barbados Holidays

Barbados holidays are always high on the list of travel destinations for people in the U.K. with its warm sunny climate and cool winds. The people are friendly, the lifestyle is laidback, the beaches are beautiful and the climate is fantastic. The blue ocean is very inviting and people on Barbados holidays can’t help having great fun on the tempting soft sand and in the warm water. Picturesque towns offer vibrant colours, great atmosphere and surprisingly good shopping. It’s the perfect place to lazily soak in the sun and relax to beautiful sunsets with delicious Mount Gay sugar cane Rum.

Balmy Barbados is an independent democratic Island Nation located in the western Atlantic Ocean. It lies to the East of St Lucia, north of Trinidad and Tobago and close to Dominican Republic.

This beautiful island country that was ruled by the British for over three centuries gained independence in 1966 and still maintains Queen Elizabeth II as its head of state. For a long time it was famous as one of the largest centres for Sugarcane production. Recent years have seen it become a major investment hub. British sailors who first arrived in Barbados, went on to Florida en route to the present day United States. Like Barbados, holidays to Florida are amongst the most popular among British holiday makers.

This petite West Indian country has an area of 430 sq. km. and a population of about 300,000. Approximately 90% of all Barbadians (also called Bajan) are of African descent, with European and Asian minorities. The official language is English and its local dialect is called Bajan. Recognised regional languages are Hindi and Bhojpuri. Most Barbadians are Christians, with Hindu, Jewish, Muslim and other minorities.
