Destination Barbados - need advice

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone.

Wife and I are planning a last minute trip to Barbados, and could use some advice on the following:

- Best beaches - knowing there will be cruisers in port - we much prefer beaches there are more deserted

- Best local food. We love roti, goat water, johnny cakes etc, and would much prefer to eat local than a fancy restaurant serving steaks from the States.

- Best watering hole. Dive bars, local "establishments" of sorts.

- Good live music. We are well beyond our clubbing days, but a good reggae band playing at dusk while downing rum and cokes would be nice....

- Must do's?

Thanks and will provide full trip report upon our return!
