Things to do on your honeymoon in Barbados

Barbados is undoubtedly one of the best places in the Caribbean to venture to with your loved one. From intimate, private beaches to must-see historical sights, Barbados is the place to come for a luxury, memorable honeymoon.

Start your holiday off by exploring some of what the North side of the island has to offer. We recommend beginning your trip by visiting the Arlington House Museum, this will give you an insight into the history of Barbados and prepare you for the rest of your trip. It is also worth visiting the St Nicholas Abbey plantation house, situated in the parish of St Peter, this is one of the oldest sugar plantations in Barbados

Where to stay with your family in Barbados…

The Hilton Barbados Resort is the ideal combination of luxury and leisure. With ocean facing accommodation on the headland of Needham’s Point, this resort is the perfect escape for the entire family. Located only five minutes from the island’s capital, Bridgetown, everything is easily accessible should you wish to venture out from the bubble of your resort. There is also a kids' club to keep the little ones occupied whilst you indulge in the luxuries of the health and fitness complex and spa treatments.

Things to do on your family holiday in Barbados

If you happen to be in Barbados towards the end of July and the start of August then the Crop Over Festival is not to be missed. The Carnival, which takes place once a year, is in celebration of the end of the local sugar cane harvest and is the perfect place to immerse yourself in Caribbean culture. The carnival is vibrant, colourful and showcases a selection of art, music, craft and dance.

 Head to the picturesque Crane Beach in the south-east of Barbados, it is home to pink hued sands and jagged limestone cliffs, littered with palm trees. You can also spend some time surfing here or if that’s a little too challenging for everyone then why not give the boogie boards a go? It is a guaranteed afternoon of fun for the whole family. If surfing isn’t your thing but you wouldn’t mind watching, then head over to Bathsheba beach on the east coast. Home to some of the most famous surfers in the world, this is any surfers paradise. Surfing or not, the scenery here is enough to make anyone want to visit.
