The main Barbadian festival is the Crop Over, a traditional harvest festival that takes place over the summer to celebrate the local culture, music and food. There are many other popular festivals to choose from, such as the International Horticultural Flower Show, Reggae Music Festival, Holetown Festival, as well as The Barbados Food and Rum Festivals and the weekly local Oistins Fish Fry on the south coast.
You are invited to pamper yourself at world class spas, lounge at beachfront clubs like Pier One at Port St Charles, where mega yachts sail to the island-time flow of life. For the adventure lovers, we welcome you to try an island safari, cave excursions, submarine and catamaran tour. The diversity of choices are abundant, from swimming with sea turtles, snorkelling, horseback riding on the beach, simply taking a stroll or just sitting back, relaxing and taking in the paradise views.
A wide variety of sporting activities are also available, including cricket matches, regattas, golf tournaments, polo season, or horse racing with the highly anticipated Sandy Lane Gold Cup.
On the west coast of Barbados, you will find luxury shopping at its best in Holetown, with international brands in jewellery and fashion with local arts and crafts exhibits and house shops.
