Attractions Sports

With its year-round temperate climate and abundant tropical vistas, Barbados plays the consummate host to many a sports enthusiast.

Well known throughout the Caribbean for sports tourism, Barbadians are avid sportsmen and sportswomen, who demonstrate a passion for a wide variety of activities, including horseracing, polo, water sports, road tennis, golf, track and field, and, most especially, cricket.

This proud history and love of sport has led to the creation of a number of world-class facilities throughout the island, and has encouraged many overseas competitors from Europe, America and other Caribbean nations to come to Barbados for international tournaments or to test their skills with a good match against our local teams.
