About The Barbados

Location

Barbados is the most easterly of the Caribbean islands, approximately 4hrs from Miami, Florida.

The Island

Unlike most of the other Caribbean islands, Barbados is not volcanic, but predominatly coral based. The island water supply is sourced from underground springs, and is filtered naturally by limestone, and then treated by the local Water Authority. What this means is that this is one of the few places in the world where there is absolutely no need to boil or filter the water. It can and should be enjoyed directly from the tap. Due to the nature of its formation, Barbados is a relatively flat island, with its highest point, Mount Hillaby, measuring in at 1,089ft. However, this also attributes to the development of spectacular underground limestone caverns and caves, the most popular being Harrison's Cave.

Most of the culture and heritage of the island is linked to the growing of sugar cane, which is the island's main agricultural product. Initially a British colony, built by African slaves, english is the official language, but is frequently substituted for a dialect called bajan. The nationals are referred to as either Barbadians or Bajans.

Although Barbados may not be very visible on an atlas, it is recognised as the Number One Developing Country, boasting a stable 350 year old government, a high standard of Health Care as well as a strong socio-economic infrastructure. Education is available up to tertiary level, virtually free of cost to all nationals. The exchange rate between the US dollar and the Barbadian dollar is: $1 US = $2 BDS

Barbados achieved independence in 1966 and is governed by a democratic government, with elections being held every 5 years. Three political parties exist; The BLP (Barbados Labour Party), The DLP (Democratic Labour Party) and the NDP (National Democratic Party)

Of the many industries that have arisen, the main money earners are Agriculture and Tourism followed closely by Offshore-Banking and Infomation Technology Sevices.

Activities and Sports

There is much to satisfy your thirst for adventure and sport in Barbados. Cricket is the national sport, and many international Test Cricket matches are played at the infamous Kensinton Oval.

Golf has become a major sport in Barbados with the building of several world class 18 hole golf courses such as Royal Westmoreland and Sandy Lane Golf courses. Other well supported sports include polo, water polo, squash, lawn tennis, table tennis, hockey, surfing, windsurfing, rugby, track and field events, marathons, netball basketball, horse racing,Tae Kwondo, Judo and Karate. For those wishing to experience the natural wonders of the island, there's scuba diving on numerous reefs, complete with ship wrecks, nature trails, cave tours, submarine dives, and helicopter tours.

At night, dine at gourmet resturants serving both local and non local cuisines, then dance the night away at one of numerous night clubs around the island. Transportation is never an issue as the island is serviced by both a private and public transportation system as well as hundreds of taxis.
