Island oasis at Barbados vacation home rentals

A Caribbean paradise with beaches that belong on a postcard, Barbados is an island lover's dream, with soft white sand that warms your toes and palm trees that sway in the gentle ocean breezes. Whether you prefer to spend days on the shore soaking up the sun and shopping at local markets, or out on the turquoise waters, surfing, sailing and snorkeling, there are plenty of fun-filled activities for your Barbados getaway. When the time comes to pick your Barbados vacation rental, you'll find everything from beachside villas with pools to homes in the historic heart of Bridgetown, the capital city, with its gorgeous colonial architecture.

Things to do

Tourist attractions near vacation rentals in Barbados

Though the picture-perfect coastline certainly is a big draw to this island paradise, don't forget about the rainforest attractions to be found inland. Hunte's Garden is a favorite spot to admire lush plant life in grounds designed by a local horticulturist. Along paths lined with palms and rare exotic plants, you might encounter hummingbirds and monkeys, so keep your camera handy. You can also spot monkeys and watch them munching on bananas at nearby Welchman Hall Gully, which has a kid-friendly adventure park with zip lines, tight ropes, rope swings and a treehouse in the midst of a natural rainforest setting.

Activities

Things to do near vacation homes in Barbados

Water activities are in high supply in Barbados, with the 33-kilometer-long island surrounded by the gorgeous blue of the Caribbean and Atlantic Oceans. Bathsheba Beach is a popular spot for surfing, while families head to calmer spots like Dover Beach for swimming and playing in the waves. Snorkeling and scuba diving are big here, and you can hop on boat tours that take you to the best underwater shipwrecks and reefs where vibrant tropical fish can be found. Traveling without kids? Take a romantic sunset cruise and watch the sky change to shades of pink and orange over the glistening waters.

Weather

Local weather for the trip to vacation homes in Barbados

With sun-soaked days that stay in the 70s and 80s year-round, there's no bad time to visit Barbados, though most people tend to opt for a stay during the dry season, which runs from December through April. If you plan to visit in winter, you'll want to book your Barbados vacation rental early to ensure your dates are available, as crowds tend to be higher during this time. Even though hurricane season lasts from June through November, Barbados' eastern Caribbean locale lowers the risk, making late spring, before the summer rains set in, a great choice for a quieter stay.

Natural features

Underground adventures in Barbados

From the sandy beaches and fish-filled tropical waters that ring the island, to the lush rainforests inland, Barbados brims with stunning nature. The island has an oft-overlooked natural feature too, in the form of its limestone caves. You can visit one, Harrison's Cave, and join tram tours and eco-adventures that show off its underground features, including clear streams, pools, waterfalls and stalagmites. Animal Flower Cave on the coast is a sea cave with colorful walls and pools for swimming. After spending a day adventuring in the dark, it's just a quick hop back to your Barbados vacation rental and the warm sunlight the island is known for.

Food and drink

Must-try foods in Barbados

Barbadian cuisine is a mix of African, Portuguese, Indian, Irish, Creole, and British influences. Traditional meals consist of meat or fish marinated in herbs and spices, and hot side dishes. The national dish of Barbados is cou-cou and fried flying fish with a spicy gravy, which is available in most eateries near vacation rentals.
