Holidays to Maxwell serve up one of the finest beaches on Barbados’ south coast. And you’re minutes away from the fishing town of Oistins and bubbly St Lawrence Gap.
Beach break dreams look something like a Cruise & Stay holiday in Barbados. And Maxwell, on the south coast of this beautiful Caribbean island, is everything you could imagine.
Lazy beach days
Slow down and dedicate some time to serious relaxation at the start or end of your cruise. Maxwell’s powder-soft, white coral beach is a tranquil spot, offering a few restaurants and local arts and crafts stalls. Once your appetite for sunbathing and loafing has been satisfied, perhaps some watersports will tempt you from your sun bed? Maxwell is one of the best spots for windsurfing, and you’ll find a hut on the beach that will provide all the gear and help you need, whether you’re a beginner or a dab hand.
Bars, food, shopping...
To up the tempo, you don’t have to travel far. Nearby St Lawrence Gap features fine restaurants and lively bars where you can dance till dawn. Just a handy 25-minute walk west from Maxwell, The Gap – as it's called by those in the know – is not just about the buzzy nightlife. Take a stroll through the Shopping Village for gifts and souvenirs, where the shops are replicas of traditional Bajan houses, painted in pretty pastel colours. Cameras at the ready...
Freshly fried seafood
Fifteen minutes' walk east of Maxwell is the town of Oistins, home of the famous Oistin’s Fish Fry every Friday. Tasting delicious fried or grilled fresh ocean fare like fresh tuna, swordfish, marlin, mahi-mahi and flying fish is a real Barbados must-do. Dance alongside the locals, enjoy the calypso music and soak up the relaxed but lively atmosphere on a warm Barbados evening. And of course, don’t forget to sample the renowned local rum during your Cruise & Stay getaway.
Spectacular cave system
Tear yourself away from the hot Caribbean sun and visit Harrison’s Cave, a 30-minute drive away from Maxwell, on the east coast of Barbados. There, you'll find a jaw-dropping cave system of waterfalls and emerald pools, framed with impressive stalactites and stalagmites that have developed over thousands of years. An electric tram will take you deep down to a hidden waterfall that pours into an otherworldly underground pool.
