Is April lively in Barbados?

We are in the process of planning for next years holiday and would like to go to the caribbean - probably barbados. Is April a quiet or lively month there? Last year we went to Antigua in May and whilst we like peace and quiet there was absolutely NOTHING going on. Even the bars and restaurants (those that were open) were empty. Any suggestions please.

April is usually the time of our annual Barbados trips (have done it during late Nov also). We stay on the south coast (more active than the west coast), and yes, its usually lively, but not packed where you cant get a dinner resrvation or a spot at anyone of the great bars on the strip at St. Lawrence Gap!

We just returned from Barbados & it the nightlife was pretty quiet but I would not say dead. We did find a few hopping places - it seemed like each night a different bar/restaurant was the hot spot. If you have any questions let me know. We stayed at CausaRina.

Carole, I, too, just returned from Barbados - we stayed in St. Lawrence Gap. The nightlife wasn't really happening for us. I prefer live bands, but didn't find much. Of course, there are bars and restaurants all up and down the strip (be very careful walking- roads are extremely narrow and no sidewalks). Great food (albeit expensive). If you have any specific questions email me - [email protected]

The following event is quite big in Barbados during April:

De Congaline Carnival is a nine-day carnival. The Congaline Village is the heart and soul of De Congaline Carnival and provides a daily exhibition forum and marketplace for a myriad of free entertainment and local arts, crafts and culture. It is dubbed the "World's Greatest Street Party" as it culminates in a one-day T-shirt band parade. 2001 marks the eighth year the festival was being celebrated.

Also during April there is an "Oistens" festival

Oistins Fish Festival celebrates the life and contribution made by this fishing town to the overall development of the island. The programme includes fishing, boat racing, fish boning competitions, a Coast Guard Exhibition, food stalls, arts and crafts, dancing, singing and road races.

So you should find something to do, but it depends upon what you are looking for.
