Did you know that Bajans were among the first to produce rum? Or that the grapefruit was bred in one of the island's gullies? Russell Streeter does. He also knows where the most tranquil beaches are, where the turtles swim and nest, and where you can savour the best fried fish.

In this information age, it can be challenging sifting through all of the data and finding what’s really useful. So instead of trawling through the Internet, this insightful and colourful book will help you to navigate the best that Barbados has to offer.

It includes details of:

  • 38 beautiful beaches to relax on;
  • 39 engaging attractions;
  • 24 fun activities to keep you out of trouble!
  • Lists of major tour operators with contact details;
  • Summaries of the major scuba diving sites around the island;

Plus over 30 full-colour pictures, a short guide to local cuisine and a list of major annual cultural and sporting events

All this for less than the cost of a good meal!

This book doesn't include every beach, rum shop or building that the Queen or George Washington ever stayed in. There are no details of hotels or restaurants - because Trip Advisor is the best place for such information.

Instead, it's your personal tour guide to some of the best that Barbados has to offer.

There's more to Barbados that the beaches. With this book you can feel like a 'regular' even on your first trip!

Its 166 square miles of forests, cliffs, fishing villages, wildlife, nightlife, and beaches are surrounded by miles of coral reef teeming with an incredible array of sea life and shipwrecks. Some of the best sailing in the Caribbean is here, with southeasterly trade winds to carry you across the water. This is a land rich in history and culture, with an abundance of wildlife, beauty and nature. There are few other guidebooks on the island and most are badly out-of-date. With 500,000 tourists visiting per year, Barbados is a major attraction with very little guidebook competition. We detail the best diving spots, all types of accommodations, dining, tours, local lore and festivals, services. Extensive background on the history, government and economy of the island. The author has been a regular visitor for over 20 years. Filled with inside information on which festivals are worth your time, where to find the best Bajan music, classes that will teach you the local cooking and artistic styles, None of the other guides take the perspective that we do, immersing you in the local culture and in the active things to do on the island.
