So you have a few vacation days left and you’d like to visit the Caribbean. Barbados is one of the most, if not the most fun-filled island in the Caribbean. Barbados known mainly for it’s sandy beaches, has much more to offer for a girl’s/guy’s weekend or couples looking for either a laid back vacation or one filled with excitement. Luxe offers suggestions for a quick weekend get-away from Friday to Monday.
Enjoy Oistins Fish Fry
Located on the South Coast of the island, every Friday night, this cluster of food huts cook freshly caught fish, prepared either grilled or fried. Vendors also serve other meats seasoned to perfection, along with rice, potatoes and a Bajan favourite, macaroni pie.
Embrace the local atmosphere with its mixture of music consisting of dancehall, reggae, pop and oldies, while sipping on the popular and locally brewed Banks beers or Mount Gay Rum.
Kick back on a Catamaran
On Saturday, jump on one of the many fine catamarans that will sail you along the West Coast of Barbados. The friendly captain and his crew will take you to swim with the turtles and view sunken ships. Enjoy Bajan food and free drinks on board, take in the sun on the deck and learn about the island’s West Coast. With many types of sailing experiences available, ask Luxe to assist with which boat would suit you best.
Take in the East Coast
With the West Coast being completely picturesque and the South Coast being the activity hub of the island, the East Coast is the rugged un-spoilt haven. Showing its natural side, the East Coast faces the Atlantic ocean and such is perfect for surfers. However, for those who aren’t surf pros’, this coast still has a lot to offer; from long serene walks, picnics, off roading and watching the sun rise; be sure to take a trip to this side of the island on Sunday.
