Top 10 fun things to do in Barbados (Part 2)

Drive around island
After a couple of days dedicated to remaining horizontal, listening to the lapping waves as you lie on the beach, it’s time to explore what this magnificent Caribbean island has to offer! Renting a car in Barbados is really easy. Rental companies can deliver to the airport, to your hotel or you can pick it up from their offices.  This is the best way to see the island to allow you to go at your own pace and being able to make random pit stops to enjoy the view or just for a good looking rum or food shack! Alternatively to explore in style, we can arrange a private driver for you.

Deep sea fishing
For those who love the adrenaline rush and battle of reeling in a big game fish; Barbados has some of the most varied and exciting deep sea fishing. Off the shores of Barbados, you are likely to catch the infamous barracuda, Tuna, Wahoo, Dolphin (don’t worry it’s Dorado) as well as blue and white marlin! December to April are the best times to catch the big game and most Barbados fishing packages include transport, refreshments and equipment.

Rum tour
Rum is a major part of the Caribbean culture and way of life. Even visitors to the island will discover their new favourite drink at happy hour - A rum punch! Rum is one of the biggest exports with two household hold names – Cockspur and Mount Gay. Did you know that Mount Gay Rum is the oldest rum in the World? We highly recommend visiting the Mount Gay Rum distillery which offers a great insight into the history, how it is made and a some free tasters throw in!
The signature tour is $10 which allows you to take a look round the distillery with children but we would suggest the Cocktail tour at $50 USD which includes a rum cocktail making class and transport back to your accommodation (no children allowed). The tour guides have infinite knowledge that they love to share with you along with a healthy dose of Bajan humour and charm!

Explore over 150 shipwrecks and colourful reefs that are full of life as you scuba dive in Barbados. The most popular diving sites are ‘The Stavronikita’ and Carlisle Bay where you can come face to face with the feisty barracuda, beautiful rays and giant eels as you explore the depths of the Caribbean sea!

Harbour lights show

For a colourful, energetic and fun filled night of entertainment, we recommend the Harbour Lights Beach Extravaganza. With great food and fantastic entertainment, the dinner show at Harbour lights is a brilliant night for all ages. Spend the evening dancing in the sand to the live band after watching watching performances from stiltmen, fire eaters, acrobatic green monkeys and limbo queens! A fun night out for all of the family.
