Food & Drink in Barbados

Food doesn’t get much fresher than it does on the vibrant island of Barbados, with an incredible array of fish caught each morning and a colourful spectrum of fresh tropical fruit picked straight from the trees and plants that cover the island. There’s also a fantastic street food scene to be found on the island; some of the more daring travellers out there may want to sample one of the more quirky Bajan dishes - grilled pigtails!
For a memorable open-air dining experience, ‘Oistins Fis Fry’ offers a family friendly environment where diners can enjoy the sounds of authentic calypso music while they enjoy an array of seafood, hot off the grill.

Things to do in Barbados

Barbados has so much more to offer than its incredible beaches and produce. A trip inland gives travellers a taste of the Bajan lifestyle, exploring fascinating sugar plantations during an organised hike from the Barbados National Trust or tasting rum straight from the source at one of the island’s authentic rum shacks.
There’s no shortage of seaside activities to be enjoyed on the island’s many breathtaking beaches either, with the crystal clear waters providing a tropical playground for swimming, kayaking and snorkelling enthusiasts, while those who prefer to keep their feet on dry land can enjoy a day of relaxation, kitesurfing or take advantage of some truly incredible golf courses!

Useful info for Barbados Holidays

Direct flights to Barbados typically take around 9 hours, a small price to pay for the idyllic climate and crystal clear waters that await you!
The local currency used on the island is the Barbados Dollar (BBD), however, visitors may want to hold off shopping for branded clothes and electronic goods on the island, as they are often imported and therefore come with a higher price tag.

It’s also worth noting that any ‘camouflage’ patterned clothing or accessories cannot be brought into Barbados as it is strictly reserved for military use. It’s worth ensuring you don’t pack camouflage clothes or accessories for yourself or others in your bag, as they will likely be confiscated before entering.
