More about Barbados

MORE ABOUT BARBADOS

Sitting on its Caribbean throne, Barbados remains the undisputed paradise. Allow us to list the obvious bits first: powder white beaches; swaying, coconut laden palms; azure waters (we prefer to call them ‘really, really clear’ waters). But there’s an unseen side to Barbados, which we’re keen to show you – from clapboard shacks serving the real stuff (rum. We’re talking about proper rum) to sections of untrodden beach studded with ancient mahogany trees, the calls of green monkeys, and the best grill bars in this part of the world. We’ve got the best of Barbados.

Private ocean tours in Barbados

LIFE IN THE SLOW LANE

Detours make for long delays (of course). And Barbados is all about the lo-fi, slow-mo detour. Take your time, and we’ll take you on a private tour of these still surprising islands – with a stay in a tropical cove, the street scene of the island’s capital, Bridgetown, and the best surfing at the Soup Bowl. We can nudge you around these waters in a private catamaran, or introduce you to the island’s best chefs and the amazing things they do with local ingredients. Cou Cou and flying fish will become a new favorite. We’re sure of that.

QUIET IN THE COVE

Slow down the pace of life at Cobblers Cove, a dreamlike marriage of 1960s colonial-inspired architecture and wildlife-rich, vibrant gardens, with a sun-drenched deck that hangs over the inviting ocean. Not bad for a day’s sleep.
