Barbados also has a thriving foodie scene and a rich cultural heritage that makes it a perfectly unique honeymoon destination. The finest hotels, spas and eateries in the Caribbean sit on the fashionable west coast of the island, while beyond there’s a treasure trove of rolling sugar-cane fields, museums, blossom-filled botanical gardens and historic houses to explore.
The capital, Bridgetown, together with its Garrison, is a UNESCO World Heritage site, offering an outstanding example of British colonial architecture. In the north, Speightstown, formerly known as ‘Little Bristol’, boasts a cool, contemporary vibe with a thriving café, arts and restaurant scene – the ideal place to sample fresh seafood and local cuisine. Honeymooners will marvel at the island’s natural wonders during a visit to the Welchman Hall Gully national park, rich with birdlife and chattering vervet monkeys.
