Barbados-Anything I should not miss out on?

I'm going to Barbados for the first time mid September. Please give me suggestions on what's fun, nightlife, good restaurants, etc. Anything I should not miss out on?

Thanks, I did check it out and you're right it has good info. I guess I was hoping to hear about a great "cannot miss" place from someone who's been there.

OK, can't miss for sightseeing. Flower Forest and Andromeda Gardens are two of the most spectacular tropical garden/forest sights anywhere. One visitor noted in their guest book, "If I owned Paradise and Flower Forest, I'd rent out Paradise and live in Flower Forest," Harrison's Cave, the wildlife preserve, and two beautifully maintained old plantation houses, Francia Plantation and Sunbury Plantation. Mt.Gay rum factory. East coast road.

Don't miss the Fish Fry in Oistens on a Friday night. It's great fun.

Do a search for Lois on this site. She is the expert on Barbados and puts together a tip sheet for Barbados. If you e-mail her she will send it to you.

The best restaurant on the island is the Lone Star, with The Cliff being a close second. Both are on the west coast, right on the water. I agree that the Oistins Fish Fry is a great time.

If you are looking for "outdoors" stuff, there is some very good golf (Sandy Land & Royal Westmoreland) and good snorkling/decent diving (High Tide Watersports is a good dive outfit).
