 Editor's Review
Anyone can speak Bajan, they say, just use English with a big smile. Barbados is certainly one of the friendliest islands in the Caribbean – and that’s saying a lot. It covers 166 square miles … and over 70 of these are beaches. The teardrop shape means there’s no north coast but the other three offer bay after bay of the softest, clearest-gold sand imaginable. Mango Bay, Almond Beach, the unsurprisingly named Sandy Bay and countless more, offer amazing ocean views, terrific marine sport, and many of the finest hotels in the Caribbean. But just supposing you’ve had enough sun & sand for a while, what else to do? How about an observatory (for an even closer view of tropic skies); the green monkeys and iguanas of the Wildlife Reserve; a Flower Forest; a tram ride through an immense limestone cave; the world temple of cricket, Kensington Oval; the laidback-yet-buzzing capital Bridgetown, centre for many of the Festivals. It’s almost always festival time in Barbados, from ‘Fish’ to ‘Jazz’ … or maybe an impromptu combination at a Friday Night Fish-Fry. But be warned, ‘Crop-Over’, which celebrates the end of the sugar harvest, lasts three whole weeks.
