Barbados is tailor made for honeymooners. If it’s romance and relaxation you want, then look no further. Alternatively if you want to up the pace a little, you won’t be disappointed. Barbados boasts beautiful white sandy beaches, coral reefs, stunning sunsets and luxury accommodation. With its British colonial heritage and vibrant Bajan culture, it’s a melting pot of Caribbean and British flavour. Flights to Barbados are regular and good value (see http://book.flythomascook.com/cheap-flights/to-Barbados-Caribbean/ for some real bargains) which means you have more room in your budget to spoil yourselves once you get there.
With its history, Barbados does of course have some stunning architecture to be seen throughout the island. There are deserted beaches on which to relax and soak up the Bajan sun, along with some of the most luxurious hotels and romantic restaurants in the Caribbean. For those who prefer to be a little more active there’s golf, hiking, snorkelling, fishing, scuba diving and horse riding, plus a long list of excursions to suit every taste. These are some of our favourites:
Swimming with Turtles
These beautiful creatures are an absolute joy to be around. Graceful and inquisitive, they let you swim alongside them and even stroke them as they glide through the water. You can choose to visit the turtles on a catamaran trip which includes lunch and a few stops to allow you to snorkel over ship wrecks and relax on the beach.
If peace and tranquillity is what you’re looking for, look no further than the botanical gardens at St Joseph. Here you’ll find over 50 acres offering stunning views, flora and fauna. Maybe you’ll even be lucky enough to spot a green monkey.
Private Beach Dining
For the ultimate in romantic dining, why not consider a candlelit table for two on the beach, listening to the waves lapping at the shore while feasting on a delicious a la carte meal. Or perhaps a picnic on the beach is more your style. Your hotel will provide you with everything you need to create your perfect al fresco meal, from champagne and strawberries to seafood and salads. All you need to do is pick your perfect spot to enjoy it.
As you can see Barbados makes a great choice for your first holiday as husband and wife, offering you the chance to really indulge yourselves in every way.
