October 13th, 2017 by admin | Filed under Blog.

It’s already eminent for a stretches of silky white silt and relaxed bluish shores, though Barbados has so many some-more to offer than sun, sea and sand. 

As good as being a go-to finish for a luxurious, pleasant escape, a much-loved Caribbean island is a informative hotspot, a foodie breakwater and an explorer’s dream come true. Getting there in comfort is easier than ever with British Airways who work 12 flights each week to a island, aptly named a ‘Gem of a Caribbean Sea’. 

While there are positively copiousness of truly overwhelming beaches on a island, Barbados also has a abounding story and informative heritage

Here, we take we on an insider’s debate and exhibit some of Barbados’s many dark treasures…

FOR FOODIES…

From beach bites to uninformed food markets to imagination feasts, there’s nowhere utterly like Barbados when it comes to culinary culture.

For special celebrations or a regretful cooking for two, demeanour no serve than Barbados’s critically acclaimed, Michelin-style foodie spots; The Cliff, famous for a theatrical, shore-front setting, candlelit decks and tasty desserts, swanky Cin Cin By The Sea for a servings of sexy Mediterranean dishes with a Caribbean aptitude and The Lone Star, that is as famous for a finessed menu as it is for a rum punch.

After your meal, have a dance to a live song or crop a locally-sourced humanities and crafts.

For a totally authentic ambience of Barbados, conduct to a northern city of Speightstown to a The Fisherman’s Pub, for their wealthy all-you-can eat Sunday lunch buffet.

FOR HISTORY BUFFS…

Barbados is drizzling with history, from a aged camp houses showcasing Barbados’s architectural past, to a industrial sugarine factories packed with artifacts, to a Garrison in Bridgetown, that was done a UNESCO World Heritage Site a few years ago, and is home to a largest series of 17th Century English iron canons in a world.

For considerable Jacobean architecture, shabby by a attainment of a British centuries ago, check out St Nicholas Abbey and declare a Tudor arches, musical chimneys and forged windows, or because not stop by Fisherpond Plantation Great House and take partial in a grand candelabrum workshop.

St Nicholas Abbey is a good instance of impressive Jacobean design (and produces a unequivocally possess rum on site!)

But Barbados’s attribute with Britain goes distant past a ancestral architecture; it stays clever to this day, with a island even being nicknamed “Little England” for a tighten tie and a fact it’s still a unapproachable member of a Commonwealth. It might come as small wonder, then, that British Airways provides 12 departures to a island each week, creation it easier than ever to keep a tie between a dual countries alive.

FOR RUM LOVERS…

No outing to Barbados would be finish though diving into a island’s world-famous rum offerings (and sipping on a few Dark and Stormies while during it).

Barbados and British Airways: The ideal pairing
