Things to do while in Barbados

Books could be written on the things to do in Barbados - while only 34 kilometres (21 miles) in length and 23 km (14 mi) in width what it lacks in pure size it makes up in a diverse set of shores and activities and exploration.

The HARP Space Gun - worth the adventure to get there

The HARP Space Gun is something totally off the beaten path with an interesting history, this is just one of the many interesting adventures you can find that awaits you in Barbados. Besides Space Guns and other man made artifacts the natural beauty of Barbados changes dramatically depending on the coast from the rugged East Coast

to the calm and tranquil waters of the West Coast with it's pink sand beaches

West Coast Sunset - Payne's Bay

or the South Coast with it's mix of both calm beaches like Miami (Enterprise) Beach and it's surfing and kiting areas and hidden beach areas like Merrick's Cove  

Miami (Enterprise) Beach 10 mins drive from the Villa

or for evening entertainment life like Surfer's Beach Bar which is 5 minute drive from the villa with it's live music, reasonable lunches and dinners and excellent rum cocktails and ice cold beers

or it's more sports oriented activities like Surfer's Point (where Justin Bieber has been known to practice) or Long Beach there is something for everyone.

Regardless if your idea is sipping a drink on a lounger while reading or  maybe something more active like Para-gliding, Surfing Scuba Diving, Snorkeling or playing a round of golf at Barbados Golf Club at some of the more fancier clubs such as Sandy Lane or Apes Hill - there is something for everyone on any given day.

Some recommendations would be to rent a car (maybe a Mini Moke?)

An old school Moke

for some or all of your trip to explore. While the bus system is excellent it can be at times a little unpredictable but can be an awesome adventure if you ride in one of the many "boogie buses" or the larger more traditional large buses (some of which are now 100% electric) - but if your in no hurry there is a boogie bus stop at the top of Seaview Road a 10 minute walk from the Villa as part of the Silver Sand route.

As for night life - Oistin's Fish Fry, Saint Lawerence Gap, Harbour Lights or any of the more upscale restaurants and clubs are never far away.
