Northpoint, Conneltown BB27003, Barbados
Like most place in Barbados, the Animal Flower Cave is nearly impossible to find. There are no street signs anywhere on the island (seriously) and directions are usually given with instruction like "turn left at the second red rum shack." Most...
After a delightful tour of the Mount Gay Rum Distillery, we walked our tipsy selves back through Bridgetown, stopping at every stall to inspect the local fruits and veggies. One thing we don't find nearly as often in Puerto Rico is soursop (sugar...
I had taken part in the whole sea turtle experience before; snorkelling with them, watching a mother lay her eggs, holding disoriented hatchlings--I thought I had seen and done it all. Until Barbados. The moment I came face to face with that...
Bay Street, Bridgetown, Saint Michael, Bridgetown, Barbados
This is simply the best bar in Barbados ! We had a wonderful time, quite relaxing, with an amazing bar. For a cheap price ( I think it was like 12$), you get shuttle service, a free welcome drink, and a chair with an umbrella. The beach is...
Henrys, Bridgetown, Barbados
There's simply no better place to get Caribbean spiny lobster on Barbados than Lobster Alive. Fact. Why? Because practically every lobster sold in every restaurant on the island comes through this one unassuming location. The problem is that due...
Bay St, Bridgetown, Barbados
I am a HUGE bread pudding fan and have tried many different kinds, but I truly think that the one I had at Brown Sugar in Barbados was the best ever. The picture barely does it justice, and I will admittedly say that the presentation wasn't the...
Pebbles Beach, Bridgetown, Barbados
For a delicious and simple fish fix, this is the place to go! With 3 menu items (cheese, egg, marlin), there aren't many options, but it works! I recommend getting all 3 on 1 sandwich. The price is cheap at $5 US, and the food is fresh. Although...
Brown's Gap, Bridgetown, Barbados
Mauby tastes like Christmas. Traditionally found in the drink form, this creative little local health food shack turned it into a vegan ice cream. And wow was it delicious! Hints of nutmeg and spices, but sweet and tasty. This little family run...
The Boardwalk Main Road, Highway 7, Bridgetown, Barbados
On my most recent visit, I arrived at Tapas just after the lunch rush. The hustle and bustle had just died down — leaving me and my traveling companions free to enjoy the sounds of the waves coming ashore just beyond the dining room and more...
Rockley, Bridgetown, Barbados
It was my sixth visit and my quest remained elusive: where to get a decent cup of coffee on an island that was British for a very long time (and always had a large contingent of Brits visiting). Seemingly the only place in the world that Starbucks...
Worthing, Christ Church, Barbados
Located on the island's unassuming south coast, down a street that doesn't even have a name (which isn't uncommon in Barbados) sits a little beach bar called the Carib. Wander up to the wood deck and smile at the Bajan waitress pulling double-duty...
Gun Hill, Barbados
This was my 5th trip to Barbados. Everytime I say, I've done it all, time to go somewhere else, and yet I return. On the flight down I read about the weekly hikes lead by the Barbados National Trust. We showed up at the old sugar mill ready to be...
Lemon Arbour, Barbados
Lemon Arbour began as just another one of the many rum shops that can be found all over Barbados, but as its reputation for spectacular local dishes grew, so did the actual shop. Now, Lemon Arbor has become the place to go on Saturdays for an...
Too often us intrepid experiential travelers can get caught up in the whole effort of trying to do it all. "I must explore this off-the-map place!" "I have to try this exotic dish!" It's easy to forget that sometimes the best way to get to know a...
Tent Bay, Bathsheba BB21054, Barbados
Perched on a hill across the street from the famed Bathsheba Rock, Sea Side Bar is the perfect place to stop to refuel on rum punches, Bajan staples and “old talk” while exploring Barbados’ unique east coast. Like many rum shacks, Sea Side Bar is...
