Caribbean Vacation Spots: Holidays in Barbados

Posted by on Apr 5, 2013 in Exotic Locations | Comments Off on Caribbean Vacation Spots: Holidays in Barbados

Sometimes, you may feel you need a break from work or from the kids. Sometimes, you want a change of pace. That is why Virgin Holidays will help you take time off from your busy schedule to a Caribbean getaway for you or your partner. Barbados is a culturally rich island and is well-renowned to be a beautiful Caribbean vacation spot. A very flat coral island, Barbados is the most easterly of the Windward Islands and has a varied landscape of calmly rolling countryside in the middle of the island, gorgeous sand beaches on a hidden west coast (a popular hotspot for famous people), a wild and windswept but beautiful Atlantic east coast, a hilly northern region, and a bustling southwest coast – the most populated and alive  tourist area on the island and where Bridgetown, the capital, is located.

The best time to check out Barbados is during the holiday season. Virgin Holidays have this Barbados Holidays package, which will include information on the best hotels, eateries, and entertainment centres on this attractive Caribbean island. For example, if you are looking for a fancy restaurant to take your wife (or husband) to check out, go to The Cliff.

The Cliff

The Cliff is very  relaxed and seductive Daphne’s, the ever-popular  Lone Star, and modern Cin Cin on the west coast – all fancy eateries overlooking the sea and frequented by celebrities. The romantic settings are awesome but can be extremely expensive. Attract your taste buds at the Fish Pot Restaurant.

Lone Star

Here, you can opt for tasty appetisers such as grilled king prawns or tempura fried soft shell crab and delicious  main courses such as braised lamb shank or roast rack of elk.
