Barbados is brimming with stunning beaches, vibrant towns and historical sites. From St Nicholas Abbey to Bridgetown and the fish market at Oistins, the island has plenty to explore. The ideal way to get around the island is by organising Barbados car hire at the airport when you arrive.
A good time to visit the island is from November to February, when the temperature is fairly mild. However, Barbados can be a year-round destination as the weather is almost always pleasantly warm and you are usually guaranteed plenty of sunshine.
Barbados offers such a huge list of attractions, beaches and 'must see' sites that the best to do it all is via hire car. The capital Bridgetown offers shopping and history whilst the nearby resorts of St. Lawrence Gap and Worthing boast sandy beaches and entertainment. Try to catch a cricket match whilst you are in Barbados and take a trip to Oistins Fish Market, both typically Barbadian affairs.
Use car rental in Barbados to help you discover the entire island, from the sandy beach of Crane in the south to the resorts of Speightstown and Holestown in the west. Drive inland to explore the historic sugar plantations of Sunbury and St. Nicholas Abbey, where you can try the local rum. If you want to try some water sports, then drive to the east coast for the surfing at Bathsheba.
International flights arrive on the island at Sir Grantley Adams Airport (BGI). This a good place to arrange car rental and it's a short drive from the airport to both Bridgetown and the southern coastal resorts. Hiring a car in Barbados frees you from using public transport and allows you to travel around this Caribbean gem at your own leisure.
