Barbados offers an opportunity to experience a Caribbean lifestyle influenced by its traditional British history.The first settlers arrived in1627, and the island still retains its British Parliamentary system. It has a reliable infrastructure, and offers the comforts and safety of most Western countries.
Since the island is roughly triangular in shape, the 3 coasts offer a totally different ambience. The east coast bordered by the Atlantic ocean, is wild, rugged, beautiful, isolated, and unsuitable for swimming in most areas. The south coast, has heavy surf, and is more industrial, commercial, and has numerous fast food outlets, and local markets. The west coast, known internationally as the Platinum Coast,borders the blue Caribbean Sea, which is normally calm and suitable for all varieties of water sports.
As Barbados lies outside the hurricane belt, usual weather is blue sunny skies and white puffy clouds, normal showers being of short duration. Average daily high 30C. Sea temperature's a constant 80F.
Newly added an "invisible screen" on the balcony, so the sun is never too hot!
