NEW UPDATED EDITION FOR 2019

New edition features a quick guide to the Top 5 beaches and attractions

This insider’s guide reveals the island’s best-kept secrets, so you can feel like a “regular”, even on your first trip, and find activities for the whole family!

  • Find the best beaches, away from the crowds...
  • Learn the stories behind the sights
  • Plan your holiday before you leave home - and make sure you pack the right stuff!
  • Benefit from local knowledge
  • Make the most of your hard-earned vacation
  • This book is small enough to fit in your pocket

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 book will help you to navigate the best that Barbados has to offer.

A great resource for anyone traveling to Barbados. I purchased it in preparation for my 4th trip there and found it to contain lots of great nuggets of information. Great to have the inside track from someone who lived there!

- RM Brown, Amazon.com verified purchase

Like most people I was expecting "more" initially. It's a very small paperback, and arguably not "worth" the price. But actually I think it IS worth the price as it's written with no advertorial bias and simply provides a rational and ordered list of things to do including reviews of the main sights/tourist attractions and the many different beaches. As a first timer to Barbados I found it very useful for helping plan what to do during our stay. One thing it's missing is a decent map, but there are plenty of these available on arrival, in bars/restaurants, or as App downloads on your phone. And there's no restaurant review but TripAdvisor covers this just fine. As a first timer to Barbados I found it very useful for helping plan what to do during our stay.

- AJ London, Amazon.co.uk verified purchase

It was really helpful when visiting the island. Info is accurate and personally presented which makes it a pleasant read as well as helping you see the best on Barbados. After all, it is not everyday you get the chance, so you want to make the best of your visit.

- Madame, Amazon.co.uk verified purchase

This colourful book features:

  • 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.

The new edition takes on board much of the feedback (good and bad) that readers have provided over the past 4 years, whilst keeping the goal of being your personal guide to 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!

Barbados (Travel Adventures)
 
Product Description:
Here is the new 6th edition of this remarkable travel guide. We travel to grow – our Adventure Guides show you how. Experience the places you visit more directly, freshly, intensely than you would otherwise – sometimes best done on foot, in a canoe, or through cultural adventures like art courses, cooking classes, learning the language, meeting the people, joining in the festivals and celebrations. This can make your trip life-changing, unforgettable. All of the detailed information you need is here about the hotels, restaurants, shopping, sightseeing. But we also lead you to new discoveries, turning corners you haven't turned before, helping you to interact with the world in new ways. That's what makes our guides unique. Barbados is fascinating, a mixture of Africa and Britain in the Caribbean. The easternmost of all the Caribbean islands, Barbados is uniquely situated to avoid virtually all hurricanes. 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. Today's traveler is eager to explore--not just sit on a beach. "[Adventure Guides] aim to deliver content... Moderately-priced and truly user-friendly, they are packed with information that other series rarely cover." Library Journal. "Bursting with relevant and exciting information... " Booklist.

  • HACKETT
Product Description:
Ligon's True and Exact History of the Island of Barbados is the most significant book-length English text written about the Caribbean in the seventeenth century. [It] allows one to see the contested process behind the making of the Caribbean sugar/African slavery complex. Kupperman is one of the leading scholars of the early modern Atlantic world. . . . I cannot think of any scholar better prepared to write an Introduction that places Ligon, his text, and Barbados in an Atlantic historical context. The Introduction is quite thorough, readable, and accurate; the notes [are] exemplary! --Susan Parrish, University of Michigan
