Trip Ideas Adventure

For those who aspire for more than just a day spent upon flawless white beaches and beneath perfect blue skies, Barbados offers a number of exciting diversions to satisfy even the most adventurous soul.


Offshore, the ocean beckons with the call of a chartered deep sea fishing excursion or a diving expedition to explore the shipwreck capital of the Caribbean. Closer in, the “white horses” provide ample surfing opportunities, including kite surfing and wind surfing along the southern coast, plus world-class board surfing at Soup Bowl in Bathsheba and all along the eastern shore. And inland, the diverse terrain of the island offers a number of activities to enjoy, including zip lining through a dense tropical forest, discovering the water-carved caverns of Harrison’s Cave or hiking among the flora and fauna of Welchman Hall Gully, Flower Forest or the Barbados Wildlife Reserve.

life lessons: swimming with the turtles


Home to a healthy population of hawksbill and leatherback turtles, Barbados affords locals and visitors with the chance to witness these magnificent creatures up close in their natural habitat. These protected reptiles are very sociable and can be seen playing and feeding along the inshore reefs. For the best view, a sailboat tour or snorkeling picnic offers the perfect opportunity to swim out among these spectacular animals.
