Barbados is one of the worlds most beautiful places with its wonderful turquoise sea and golden beaches. The islanders reflect this being so friendly, sophisticated, kind and considerate.
Every day is summer as the island has all year round sunshine and blue skies. Walk along the beaches and enjoy the cool breezes, breathtaking sunsets and long, balmy, star-studded nights. This is the reason this beautiful Island of Barbados is called the Gem of the Caribbean.
The island was colonised by the British in 1966 and hs now gained independence. From this the island has a long rich history dating back to the original inhabitants of the island. The locals enjoy life with their rhythmic side but are also very keen sportsmen. Annual Sporting events are out of this world and local football teams are keen to play against teams from the UK for the experience.
