This month, we were lucky enough to Travel to the beautiful island of Barbados. This Caribbean paradise is full of so many hidden gems, we wanted to share just a few we found with you:
EAT at The Lone Star
The Lone Star Hotel & Restaurant, which is situated on Barbados’s west coast on the most beautiful stretch of beach you've ever seen. Formally a garage, it now has a collection of stunning rooms, suites and a 3-bedroom private villa, but best of all is the restaurant. The restaurant is popular, so if travelling during peak season make sure you book! Burn off lunch by snorkelling with turtles in the crystal clear warm waters off the beach in front of the hotel.
DRINK at Nikki Beach
Nikki Beach Barbados, is the first luxury beach club property on the island and sits on one and a half acres of unsurprisingly gorgeous beachfront. Offering mind-blowing views of the Atlantic Ocean and the turquoise water and sandy beaches we all know and love Barbados for, it also boasts everything you come to Nikki Beach for: music, dining, fashion shows, film, art, vibrant pool scene, and of course beach access, which here includes oceanfront seating for up to 200. Absolutely not one to be missed!
PARTY at Fish Friday at Oistins
Every Friday after sunset, the coastal village of Oistins goes crazy for fish. Local housewives and fishermen celebrate the weekly catch by frying and grilling their fresh catch of the day along the waterfront. All are welcome and for around $15 you can have a feast with a beer thrown in. The fun goes on to the open-air beat of reggae and calypso all night long. Young, old, men and women come out in a real show of old-fashioned community living, welcoming all who're up for a party. You’ll have the beach to yourself on Saturday morning if you manage to wake up before noon.
SHOP at Butterfly Boutique
Located in the popular shopping district of Holetown, this treasure trove of resortwear, swimwear and accessories is not to be missed. Nestled just behind Limegrove Shopping Centre, you'll find a beautiful selection of pieces to take you from beach to bar and in to the night. You may even find a Marble Swimwear set in there over the weeks to come. Watch this space!
SWIM with turtles
The snorkelling in Barbados is some of the best we've ever seen. Take a boat tour, or simply grab a mask and snorkel and dive right in! The amazing coral reefs scattered along the coast line mean that, even if you're not lucky enough to spot a turtle, there's still so much to see.
