Barbados is surrounding by banking and fringing reefs which provide a great habitat for a variety of eels, reef fish and the heavily protected hawksbill turtles, which you can see on most dives. The island waters are also home to several wrecks which are well worth a visit. The SS Stavronikita is a 365ft freighter sitting in about 37m of water. Sunk in 1978 it is still fully penetrable with big blast holes in the side making it quite light whilst still being an excellent wreck dive. On the shallower side there are several further wrecks ranging from 17m to 11m in depth, the newest of which is the Bajan Queen, an old party boat which was only sunk a couple of years ago. A good place for new wreck divers to start exploring. All in all, Barbados has a good range of diving for beginners to experienced divers.

What isn’t there to do on this island. It is really geared up for visitors with island tours, catamaran trips which include lunch and a free bar, horseriding, golf, surfing and a range of other water and land sports. For those who want a bit of a walk around, there is the nature reserve where you can see the local green monkeys or for the more adventurous, take a quad bike ride on the East Coast with it’s stunning views coupled with the excitement of riding the bikes along dirt trails.
The island also has a wide range of restaurants, bars and clubs – there really is something for everyone here!

International flights arrive at Barbados’ Grantley Adams Airport daily.

Crop Over is the major festival on the island. Events range from the Calipso festival to the main Carnival where one of the main roads is closed off to allow the floats and “jumpers” to travel through. The road is lined with market stalls, bars and food stands, it's really good fun.
