Barbados is a unique island that combines a beautiful landscape of beaches, coral reefs, tide pools and caves with the remnants of its colonial past. From the first settlement in 1627 to independence in 1966 Barbados was under British rule, and it is often referred to as the Little England of the Caribbean. This wonderful combination of stunning landscape features, old colonial influence and the more flamboyant local culture mean that Barbados is perfect for both relaxation and exploration. To complete the experience of Barbados visit its capital, Bridgetown, to sample the local rum and experience the friendly nature and colourful dialect of the Bajan people.
