Barbados is a great place to vacation if you are looking for beautiful beaches, sophisticated dining, outstanding golf and a little taste of Britain in the Caribbean. It is actually the most British of all the Caribbean islands and is commonly referred to as “Little England”. It has a unique location in the Caribbean because it is a full 100 miles east of the Lesser Antilles chain. The island itself is the top of a single submerged mountain of limestone and coral, and is relatively flat. On this slice of paradise you will be sure to find plenty of scenic beaches, rocky cliffs, natural caves and miles of sugarcane fields. The locals are known to be very welcoming, friendly and hospitable.
