The most easterly of the Caribbean islands, Barbados delivers cerulean blue waters, ample white sand and sun, a thriving culinary scene and proper, distilled-to-perfection rum. A nuanced upwardly mobile café culture yields friendly fun infused with a slightly button-down vibe, due in part to the island’s British roots. At just a shade over 150 square miles, Barbados manages to be quaint yet expansive, with more luxury properties per square mile than any other island in the Caribbean.Contact us
In Barbados, the water is everything. The west and south coasts offer one stretch of fine, white coral sand after another, many with cosmopolitan beach clubs. Catamaran boating on turquoise bays brings snorkeling with sea turtles, sunset cruises and superb scuba diving along the coral reefs. The quieter east side of the island is perfect for surfers braving the Atlantic waves, sunbathers relaxing and luxuriating in the sun, and kids frolicking in the tide pools.
The UNESCO World Heritage-listed capital city of Bridgetown offers keen insight into the island’s history. Make time to meander down the colonial-era streets, along the busy marina and through Cheapside Market – the food stalls on the second floor are a must-do. Speaking of food, culinary exploits are legendary across the island, from high-end fine-dining to beach-chic barbecue hotspots.
Mix with the locals at the iconic “rum shops” that dot the roadsides. As Barbados is considered the birthplace of rum, you would be remiss not to sample it at least once. Start at the premier distiller Mount Gay, which has an entertaining and informative tour and tasting programme. Then, venture out to award-winning Foursquare Distillery, considered one of the best makers of rum in the world, or the equally renowned St. Nicolas Abbey plantation house, museum and rum distillery in Saint Peter, its Jacobean mansion one of only three in the Western Hemisphere.
If by chance rum or lounging at the beach is not your passion – you can head to the sports pitches, of course. Cricket is not the only game in town, either. Champagne in hand, you can cheer on the ponies on one of four polo fields, home to international tournaments and a royal connection – Prince Charles and Prince Harry have played polo in Barbados many times.

I have been working with Tully Luxury Travel for years and love their attention to detail. They seem to know exactly what their clients needs are. They are very knowledgable about their products and are keen to share information from industry people and current clients. A special thank you to Cheri and Maychelle for working closely with us on our recent trip down the Mekong River. Your expertise, patience were beyond my expectations.
We've only just moved to Tully Luxury Travel within the last year, after using a local agency in the past. We find Diana to be prompt, efficient and professional. Her knowledge of, and experience with, booking cruises makes our travel adventures much more pleasurable. We'll definitely be staying with Tullys.
They took time to help us on choosing the best cruises at the right price and made sure all our bookings are in neat order. Would recommend to anyone and will be using again. Louise and Stephanie sure look after you.
They are great and Cheri is a delight. Have used Tully for a number of years. Have recommended them, to a number of friends and will continue to do so.
