When you are feeling adventurous, venture out and experience the culture, architecture, beaches, sights, and sea views. It is your holiday. Do what makes you happy. However, with so many fun things to do in Barbados, a little planning is always a good idea. Here are some suggestions.


You can explore Barbados by land or sea. Whether a walking tour or a coastal trip by bus or boat, it is easy to experience the best of what the island has to offer.

Barbados Coastal Tour

A guided tour is an excellent way to see Barbados. The local guides are knowledgeable and funny, making it a worthwhile experience. As you take in the sights and information, you can make plans to revisit the places you love the most. For example, a bus tour of the island takes around 7 hours and visits the following areas and local attractions:

  • Animal Flower Cave: The cave’s pretty name comes from sea anemones or animal flowers, as Barbadians call them. Explore the natural sea cave with a stunning collection of stalagmites and stalactites.
  • Soup Bowl: This legendary surf spot boasts some of the most exciting waves in the Caribbean Sea. So, it is no wonder that it attracts surfers from around the world. If you’re part of the surfing scene, soak up the beach vibe and enjoy sunbathing or swimming.
  • St John Parish Church: Take in the grand architecture and gorgeous view. This 17th-century church is one of the oldest in Barbados, located in the northeast corner of the island.

Alternatively, you can explore Barbados by boat and spend 5 hours or more cruising around the island. As well as soaking up the rich history of the area, you’ll have a chance to swim and snorkel or even spot turtles.

Unsurprisingly, some of the most Instagrammable beaches happen to be in Barbados. Blue skies, pristine white sand and crystal-clear waters perfectly capture the natural beauty of this Caribbean Island. Some of the best Barbados West Coast Beaches include:

  • Gibbs Beach: This secluded area is one of the more tranquil beaches on the island – the perfect spot if you want to spend a low-key day by the sea. It is also within easy reach of our rental villa, Salt Life.
  • Holetown Beach: The sparkling emerald green water is warm and clear. You also have restaurants and bars nearby. And the spectacular sunsets often complete a memorable day at the beach.
  • Batts Rock Beach: If you are staying in our Barbados villa rental in St James, hop on the bus to this beach. It is the perfect spot for cruises, snorkelling and swimming. You should also try out the Le Cabane restaurant with its gorgeous ocean view.

You can make the most of your beach time with a range of watersports. Exciting things to do include jetblading, scuba diving, jet skis, water-skiing, and swimming with turtles. Snorkelling in Barbados is also a must-do activity. The blue, clear waters have great visibility. Explore under the ocean and see tropical fish, mantarays and colourful coral formations.

Gibbs Beach

Codfish cakes, cou cou, fried flying fish and macaroni pie. You are in for a treat.  There is no shortage of restaurants in Barbados. The high-quality food is a celebration of locally caught fish, spicy marinades, bright dishes made with fresh ingredients, and decadent desserts. And all these flavours, textures and colours blend beautifully to create an eclectic selection of mouthwatering dishes.

If you want to enjoy gourmet food with a view, head to The Cliff restaurant in St James for a luxurious fine dining experience.  Top chefs and friendly staff welcome guests to this top Caribbean restaurant. At sunset, you can enjoy a selection of cocktails on the terrace overlooking the sea.

For more relaxed mealtimes, check out the many cafes and bars along the west coast of the island. Cafe Bar Carizma in Holetown is popular. Its sister cafe in The Chattel Village specialises in desserts. Children love their homemade waffle cones or pop in for afternoon tea.

You can also sample the local cuisine in Speightstown at the Orange Street Grocer café with gorgeous sea views. These are just some of the many places to eat in Barbados. Ask the locals for recommendations, too. They’ll point you in the direction of the best Caribbean food in town. Plenty of street food vendors serve up local delicacies at affordable prices, too.

The rum shop scene is thriving too. These relaxed bars are perfect for an afternoon or evening drink. Barbados is proud of its world-famous rum. And with good reason. This famous tiple has been lovingly perfected over the centuries to produce a flavourful spirit that packs a punch. The Barbados rum industry on the island is diverse and vibrant with many distilleries, including Mount Gay Rum Factory.

Beach life and downtime in the sun are an integral part of Barbadian holidays. However, it would be a shame to miss the opportunity to explore the towns near your luxury villa. So, set aside a few hours or more to explore the busier places.

  • Bridgetown: The capital of Barbados is a bustling port city with a vibrant atmosphere. You can easily spend a day walking around this UNESCO World Heritage Site exploring Bridgetown and its Garrison. You can also check out a golf course while you’re in the area.
  • Holetown: Get a sense of traditional Caribbean life in this friendly seaside town. The town’s main street has shops, bars and restaurants to suit all tastes. You can also admire the colonial architecture, soak up the culture, and enjoy an evening of live music or nightclubbing.
  • Speightstown: This coastal town in the northern part of the island is not far from The Hollies private villas. The town has thriving local markets and great restaurants serving authentic Bajan cuisine. Enjoy family-friendly beaches, striking architecture and St Peter Parish Church, one of the oldest churches on the island.

There are some beautiful, smaller fishing villages to explore, too. These quaint places will give you an insight into traditional island life. For example, Fitts Village is a great place to spot traditional Bajan fishing boats and visit the fish market. The beach is beautiful, too.

Enjoy the Best of Barbados

To sum up, there is something for everyone on holiday in Barbados. The laidback Caribbean atmosphere and warm climate gives the island a holiday vibe all year round.
