when one lands in Bridgetown for their first trip to Barbados, where is the best place to head for when departing the airport? Given arriving from a long flight, we probably want to head for a close, but nice, town to stay for the night before we plot our travelselsewhere.
Coming into Bridgetown via cruise ship. From what ive seen it seems best to go to Rockley/Accra beach. Where else should i go or just keep it simple with the limited time ? Any comments about maybe renting a bike at the port and riding to the beach ? Is there a way to walk from the port to the beach ? How much would a cab be or is there a way to catch a bus going here ? Thanks....
Travelling to Barbados in early November for 1 month with my husband. As surfing features heavily on the "things to do list", can anyone suggest a good location/place to stay. Probably somethig that's self-contained would be good as may want to do some cooking. Doesn't have to be fancy. Clean & simple in a nice location. Any other little tips would be welcome too as we have never been in this particular region of the Carribean.
Is there any bus from BGI Airport to St. Martins? If not, how long would it take to go there on foot?
I'd like to see Foul Bay while waiting for a flight. I will have approx. 2 hours of free time. Is it enough to go there, spend some time and come back to the airport?

my fiance and I are going to spend our honeymoon in Barbados next June lets say from 10th to 24th.
is June fine or we run a risk of severe rainy days?
is it better north or south side?
We are planning to join Barbados next february for 2 weeks of holidays (or 1 month if we decide to stay after our first experience). We would like to surf most part of our time, the other part discovering the island and its wild nature. We would like to rent a studio or be in a guest house on surfers bay or surfers point or locations very closed to these places. The ideal will be in the front of the beaches and ocean but our budget for accommodation is restricted. We are looking for something simple, natural and not expensive.
Is there anybody who has a previous experience and can give us some ideas?

A girlfriend and I are planning a trip to Barbados in September. Neither of us know the island. Where should we look into staying? There are so many great sounding cities that we don't know where to start. We'd love to be on, or very close to, the beach.
We're going to Barbados in early November for a Wedding.
The wedding is taking place near Crane Beach on the south coast. We'd like to rent a villa or apartment not too far away but have heard different things about how windy the south coast might be and the safety of swimming in the sea.
Can anyone confirm or clarify this? There seem to be lots of places to rent near Sam Lords but don't want to stay there is we can use the beach or swim in the sea.
Off for 11 days in October 2012
Any suggestions of an itinerary -
Any suggestions on accommodation for a family of 4 - rooms that sleep four or a good beach.
Any suggestions of great activities for kids and costs
Thanks in advance lee
i'll be arriving via cruise ship on Dec 29th at 8am and departing at 5 pm. My preliminary plan is to go to Accra Beach . Is it easy to catch a bus to get there ? How far is Accra beach to Ostins area ? can you walk this distance and are there sidewalks etc or do i have to bus it ? Is it worth going all the way to Crane beach instead for the day ? Is there something else that is so spectacular that i should give up my beach time and do instaed ? Thanks for your input as it is appreciated.....:)
I'm traveling alone and planning to spend 1 week at St. Vincent & Grenadines or Barbados predominanlty for diving in March.
Which of the 2 would you recommend?
And which of the 2 do you recommend beside the dives.
Thanks in advance,
My wife and I are planning a one-week trip in mid-April to either Barbados or Belize. I hope somebody who has experienced both can give me some guidance. We enjoy a diversity of interests, including beach-time, but do not want to spend the entire time on the beach. The way I see it, Belize provides the jungle and Cayes, while Barbados has beaches, history and a more inviting city in Bridgeton. Also, we are not strict budget travelers, but would like to know how the costs compare. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Hi - I arrive Bridgetown next Friday to stay in Barbados for a week and I am only looking for a simple, inexpensive room for a short stay while I get my bearings before travelling to the north of your island. I am flying in with Redjet from Georgetown, Guyana where I am on a 2 year voluntary placement with VSO-Guyana working with Amerindian communities in the far south of the country. I am English/from the UK. Thanks. Melvyn Jones
I was fortunate to go back to Barbados last month so I managed to shoot 9 more beaches.
The map is there to help you and decide where to go - but there's lots of other sites to choose from. I've added Brownes, Brandons, Brighton, Crystal Cove, Pal Bay, Drill Hall, Maxwell, Sandy Beach and myself ;)
Hope this helps,
