by Travelbag on 12 February 2016, 14:02PM

Whether you’re in Barbados for a long trip or a short getaway – make sure you check out some of the best things to do on the island.

Intro1


1. Oistins Fish Market

Visit the Oistins Fish Market on a Friday or Saturday night and enjoy the excitement and buzz of Barbados’ most popular market place. Enjoy rubbing shoulders and partying with locals to the sweet strains of Calypso music coming from the dance hall in the middle of the markets. Bajans dance arm in arm to music from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Of course all that dancing builds up an appetite, so head for the food and beverage stalls and enjoy traditional Bajan fare such as fish cakes, Jug-Jug (guinea corn and green peas) fried fish and Pudding, all washed down with a cool Banks Beer.

2. Flying Fish & Cou Cou


Sample the delicious local Bajan fare of Flying Fish with Cou Cou (a popular corn meal and okra dish) at the Atlantis Hotel and the Waterfront Café.

Intro3

3. Mount Gay Rum Tour


Enjoy one or more cocktails with expert shakers at the Mount Gay Rum Barbados distillery, and discover the colourful history of Mount Gay Rum. Learn how the world's finest rum is made and enjoy tasty Bajan cuisine in the Verandah restaurant overlooking the sea. Watch as the Distiller shows you how to create this precious spirit, and become a rum expert yourself as you explore the subtleties of flavours that will tickle your palate.

Intro4

4. Island Safari Tour


Visit the highest cliff on the island where Jim Hackleton, devastated by unrequited love, rode his horse off the edge and crashed into the sea below killing himself and his horse. Professional guides take tours through the gullies, forests, remote bays and road with coastal views exposing the hidden secrets of Barbados. Embrace the nature, history, culture and folklore of Barbados at captivating places of interest.

Intro5


5. The Crystal Room in Harrison’s Cave


With an abundance of stalactites, stalagmites, streams, lakes and waterfalls, leading speleologists consider the Crystal Room Cave to be among the finest showcases of its type in the world. The Caves are located near the geographical centre of Barbados, in the parish of St. Thomas and are a natural phenomenon in the tropical world. First mentioned in historical documents in 1795, 55 the caves were virtually forgotten for nearly 200 years, until Barbadian Tony Mason and Danish speleologist Ole Sorensen rediscovered them in 1976.
