This trip's all about taking it easy on one of Barbados’ best beaches. Plus, you get the added bonus of ticking off some of the island’s most iconic sights before reaching the sand. To start, you’ll board an air-conditioned coach at the port, and pass through the capital of Bridgetown. Keep an eye out for the parliament buildings, the historic statue of Lord Nelson and the famous Independence Square as you go. Another of the town’s must-sees is the spectacular Garrison. This 18th-century British stronghold boasts the finest iron cannon collection in the world and counts itself as a World Heritage Site. After arriving at Carlisle Bay your time’s your own to spend how you like. Bring your own snorkel gear and explore spooky shipwrecks, go for a swim, or just relax under a palm tree and watch the world go by.
