What's more...

Cruise & Stay

Many cruise lines commence and or end their Caribbean voyages from the island of Barbados. Making cruise and stay a superb option to extend your holiday pre or post cruise to sample island life.

When To Go?

Whilst known as a winter sun destination and certainly if you’re looking at holidaying over the Christmas period you’ll need to book early. We’ve also travelled in the summer months where prices are much cheaper with the odd rain shower or two.

Manchester Departures

The only Caribbean island to be served by a direct flight from Manchester. With both Aer Lingus and Virgin Atlantic serving the route.

The Whole Family

It’s a perfect destination for multi-generational holidays. From grandparents to grandchildren there really is something for everyone.


All beaches in Barbados are for public use, there are no private beaches including the famed West Coast of the island. Which means that you can visit any beach you like. Just remember not all beaches have facilities but our team can recommend where to explore.
