Island oasis at Barbados holiday lettings

The very name "Barbados" conjures images of white-sand beaches and palms stooping low to kiss a coral-coloured Caribbean Sea. Great expectations are not always realised, but Barbados is very much the paradise it's said to be. From the surf-washed inlets and colonial treasures of Bridgetown in the south, to the magnesium-white sands of the north-western coves, this one's a serious looker. Throw in mojito-sloshing beach bars and taste bud-tingling fish fries, along with Barbados holiday rentals that'll have you feeling like a jet setter, and it could just be too much to resist.

Plumes of waxy palm leaf and wild ferns, elegant lilies and forests of orchids await adventurers who delve so deep into the heart of Barbados they discover the world-famous Hunte's Gardens. It's a verdant and wonderful place that showcases the beauty of the Caribbean tropics. After that, a tipple at the Mount Gay Rum Distillery could be calling. It's billed as the world's oldest commercial rum distillery, offering potent concoctions of sugar-cane booze to all who pass its way.

Activities

Fun things to do near Barbados holiday homes

There are countless ways to enjoy the wonders of Barbados. You could be whizzing over the cerulean waters of the Caribbean Sea on a catamaran, or diving into turquoise lagoons to swim with sea turtles. You might be languishing on a lazy beach somewhere, with a bottomless rum punch in hand. You could be getting the adrenaline flowing with ziplines atop misty jungles. Barbados holiday rentals in Bridgetown have a whole other range of possibilities on the doorstep to boot. Think cricket showdowns with the Windies and fascinating walking tours past colonial churches.

Weather

Climate during your stay in Barbados holiday homes

More than 3,000 hours of sunshine a year means Barbados is up there with the most-coveted getaways in the tropics. Those looking to escape the cold winter are in luck. The best days to come and laze on the beaches and soak up the rays typically start in December and last all the way to March. After that, things can get a little more humid and rainy. The months from May to November are known for occasional downpours and balmy temperatures, but there are also far fewer people vying for the best Barbados holiday rentals.

Natural features

Lose yourself in tropical Barbados

Barbados ranges from a rugged, rock-carved north-eastern shore to a soft and sculpted western shore. One is on the Caribbean Sea, hosting rare green turtles and coral reefs, sparkling white-sand beaches and tropical palm groves. The other is craggier, with wave-buffeted cliffs and secluded coves. Head inland and lose yourself in pockets of tropical jungle. Misty and overgrown, there are sections of the island that are dressed in teak, palm and fern, hiding swinging monkeys and rare orchids.

Beaches
