North Point, Barbados
Vacationers, fashion photographers, and jet-setters alike are repeatedly drawn to the allure of Barbados and its rainbow of colors. While the general theme of the island is barefoot and relaxed, a level of sophistication and history remains for those who enjoy a touch of glamour. Bustling cities meet sunset beaches here, offering the best of both worlds. From the island’s pink cottages to its blue lagoons and scented coconut groves, Barbados is a paradise for the senses.
Surfing, horse racing and the national sport of cricket dominant the game scene, while the area’s extraordinary golf courses make for a fantastic leisure activity. Music is a large part of Barbados’s culture, so plan to unwind to the sounds of live, homegrown Calypso and Soca tunes.
Prepare to sip a bevy of rum punches, as Barbados is home to one of the oldest distilleries in the world – Mount Gay Rum. Infused with local seasonings like basil and mandarin, an array of flavors awaits every taste bud.
The yearly Crop Over Festival is a site to see in Barbados. The festival takes place from July to August and includes musical competitions, food & drink, and a costumed parade.
