From refined English history, stately plantations and luxury resorts to West Indian street feasts, buttery beaches and championship surfing and golfing, Barbados will leave you wanting for little but a repeat visit.

Barbados is numerous islands wrapped into one: Whether you seek soft beaches with calm water, rustic beaches with powerful surf, refined sophistication and white-glove afternoon tea, or the up-tempo, festive feel of a Caribbean street party, Barbados has an offering for you.

This meld comes courtesy of cultural history and geography: Barbados is the easternmost of the Lesser Antilles islands and, as such, enjoys the graces of two oceans. The island fronts the relatively calm Caribbean Sea on its west side - home to many of the destination's resorts and best swimming beaches, including Mullins Beach and Paynes Bay. The rougher Atlantic Ocean abuts its eastern end, with prime surfing spots, including Bathsheba/Cattlewash. And a windy convergence of the two bodies of water is found on the island's southern shores, where smaller hotels - and legions of windsurfers - await.
