Why go to Barbados

A cocktail of swaying coconut palms, sugar-soft sands and calm turquoise waters, holidays to Barbados are the stuff of glossy mags and smug holiday postcards.

High glamour rules the Caribbean west coast, where swanky Barbados all-inclusive resorts and private villas ooze sophistication next to dreamy white sands and gentle seas. If you're after some serious pampering, it's the place to be.

The wind-battered Atlantic east coast is a different story, with steeps cliffs and roaring waves that draw flocks of surfers, boogie boarders and water-sporters from all across the globe.

A paradise with proper tea
