Barbados is a British West Indian island in the eastern part of the Caribbean. It’s also the birthplace of rum. Additionally, many famous singers such as Rihanna, Rupee, Alison Hinds, Cover Drive are from this island. To frequently travel to this region for relaxation is one of my proudest traditions. There are beautiful beaches, friendly people, botanical gardens, great food, music and culture festivals, surfing, snorkeling, hiking, a submarine tour and horse riding in Barbados!

Here are my top 10 vacation activities to do in Barbados:

1. Grand Kadooment also known as, Crop Over.

Snorkeling is another great option if you want to do more than relaxing on the beach. Don’t get me wrong, Barbados’ beaches are breath-taking! It offers pale creamy white colored sand and crystal clear blue waters but it’s time to live it up! With snorkeling, you’ll see plenty of tropical fish, the famous hawksbill sea turtles, corals and more!

It was told, that Barbados was the only country he visited outside of colonial America. The house is also a museum, that gives an insight into the lives of Barbadians/Bajans 250 + years ago. The ground floor of the house is furnished with the original items since 1751. The second-floor displays mid-eighteenth century items that are both visual and audio. It’s a great place to visit and learn all about Barbados.

9. Kite-Surfing
