Barbados is still very British and commonly referred to as “Little England.” Afternoon teatime is observed in some circles, cricket is the national passion and polo is played all winter.
The island’s natural beauty and scenic variety are magnificent with natural caves, rocky cliffs with blowholes by the sea, sugarcane fields and some remote scenic beaches. Those seeking a week of relaxation on beautiful beaches, perhaps with a little nightlife and history mixed in, will likely be pleased with what Barbados has to offer.
The resorts are luxurious, and the restaurants provide fine dining. Even duty-free shops are often more upscale than those on other Caribbean islands.
Bajans are some of the best-educated people in the Caribbean. English is the official language, but a dialect with its own syntax, special meanings and some African words is also spoken.
