about Barbados

It has been described as an English shire county with palm-fringed tropical beaches and year-round sunshine but the island defies comparison. 300 years ago Barbados and its sugar plantations, was considered of greater value to the British crown than all the North American colonies combined.

Today it is a thriving island nation, peaceful, law abiding, progressive and an unspoiled jewel in the Caribbean. The West Coast homesand restaurants have become the playground of the rich and famous. Many own their own palatial houses and real estate prices outstrip those of even Malibu, The Hamptons or St Tropez.

Yet the East Coast remains the most scenic with verdant hills of sugar, banana and mango plantations, picturesque Bajan villages, and deserted beaches that stretch as far as the eye can see.

Barbados enjoys daily scheduled airline services from London and New York with British Airways, American Airlines, BWIA and Virgin and numerous non-scheduled daily flights from Manchester, Gatwick and many other destinations.
