Commonly known as ‘Little England’, Barbados retains strong ties with English culture. The sun shines 340 days of the year in Barbados, and the famously friendly locals only increase the island’s glorious ambience. A honeymoon in Barbados means being in one of the most popular sun destinations in the world for northern hemisphere tourists. A gorgeous tropical paradise the island itself is actually an enormous coral reef that was formed over a million years ago. This unique geography results in a breathtaking coastline, and some of the best snorkelling, surfing and diving action in the world.

About the activities:
The majority of Barbados is ringed by coral reefs and this provides an inimitable environment for diving, snorkelling and surfing. Cricket is played everywhere, annual festivals are a vibrant explosion of colour and sound, whilst the fishing and cycling are rated as some of the best in the Caribbean.
About the culture:
Barbados tradition draws from its West-African heritage, as well as a strong British colonial influence. Barbados is home to an UNESCO World Heritage-listed capital city in Bridgetown and the people are gentle, warm and kind hearted. The Barbados culture is relaxed and informal, the perfect setting for any laid back honeymoon getaway.
About the climate:
December – March: There’s nothing better than Barbados in the summer! You can expect warm weather, flawless beaches, and minimal rain. The temperature at this time of year will often reach 30 degrees, but will dip to a pleasant 23 degrees at night time. This makes it a brilliant time to visit this beautiful honeymoon destination!
April & May: As the beginning of the summer in Barbados, there really is no better time to visit this stunning destination. If you’re seeking hot weather and romantic beaches, then you won’t be disappointed by the weather in April or May. For these warm months, the sun will often shine for 10 hours a day, and reach high temperatures of 30 degrees!
What we love:
Harrison’s Cave: a rabbit warren-style cave composed of waterfalls, pools and stalactites and stalagmites. A honeymoon in Barbados is as amazing as it sounds.
