The buzz of Bridgetown

Bridgetown is a capital that simply bursts with colour. Vibrant Caribbean yellows and blues adorn its whole downtown area. Shimmering yachts and cruise ships tower in its marinas. There's a ceaseless hustle between the UNESCO-endorsed blocks of old colonial buildings, each more photogenic than the last. Bridgetown holiday rentals are your ticket to it all. Come for duty-free shopping and hedonistic parties, for drams of potent Bajan rums and enthralling cricket showdowns. Beaches are never too far either, with the island's white-sand west coast and surf-washed south coast just a short bus ride away.

Things to do

Cricket bats and colonialism in Bridgetown

Colossal cannons and grand colonial architecture greet guests to the Barbados Museum. It's the best place to head if you're eager to unravel the complex history of Barbados and the greater region – it's got a whopping 500,000 artifacts in its exhibition rooms. More local tradition is on offer with the Cricket Legends of Barbados experience. That's an odyssey through the island's best-loved sport, replete with bats and pads and cork balls going back to the 1900s. Then there's the Washington House, a gorgeous colonial home where the footsteps of American presidents still echo through the hallways.

Activities

Rummaging around Bridgetown

Bridgetown is certainly one of the Caribbean's most heritage-rich cities. One huge cut-out of the capital is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. It's awash with Neo-Gothic parliament buildings and grand statues honouring Nelson. A local guide can help you navigate all the monuments and streets, before leaving you to stretch the credit card down lively Broad Street and Swan Street. You'll find everything from duty-free jewellery to multicoloured Bajan saris between the two. After all that, perhaps a jaunt to the beach is order – the sunsets of nearby Brandons Beach are unmissable.

Weather

Bargains and beach weather in Bridgetown

The heritage of Bridgetown never sleeps. That's great news if you're eager to bag one of the coveted Bridgetown holiday rentals in Garrison or the UNESCO-tagged heart of town. You can even come during the hot and humid summer months to avoid the crowds and get your fix of local history – anytime between June and November should be good. If you're coming for the beaches, it's a good idea to hold off until the end of the rains. That comes with the start of winter, in December, ushering in dry days and loads of sun until around March.

Natural features

Beautiful Bridgetown

Bridgetown is divided by the 2 courses of the Constitution River, also known as the Careenage. It wiggles through the middle of the old city and spills out into the Caribbean Sea just north of Brownes Beach – often the first taste of quintessentially Bajan white sand and see-through sea for folk staying in Bridgetown holiday rentals close to the coast. South of the city is where the island's famous windsurfing and surfing beaches begin in earnest – head to Maxwell and beyond for the swells. North is home to picture-perfect stretches of tropical sand, fringed by palms and resplendent coral reefs.
