Barbados- Is It Worth The Trip?

Of course I would say yes. It is my island. I love it…..and we can always use foreign currency.

In fact you might argue we really need some right now.

But that is not your concern.

What you rightfully need to know if you are considering a holiday visit, or even a business trip, is: “Is it worth it?”


Tourists, including me, wonder about things. We tend to ponder and wonder and otherwise worrry about the stuff of a vacation. Needlessly sometimes, but sensibly most times.

You might be wondering about your planned Barbados trip in terms of the following questions:

I wonder what other visitors did saw and experienced on their holiday to Barbados?

I wonder what I could do on a short stay in a Caribbean island?

I wonder if it would be worth the time in flights and effort?

I wonder whether the financial cost would be redeemed by value, pleasure, fun, happy memories, adventure, or plain rest.

I wonder whether it would be authentic?

I wonder if I could learn something new?

I wonder if I’ll meet someone interesting?

What makes the fish bite??

How to know whether it would be worth it?

All things considered, and foregoing any one-off mishaps that may occur on any holiday, what is the motivation?

Sun Sea Sand and Simplicity. And Serenity. Easily said, but……..

You dont want to ‘bite off more than you can chew”!

You don’t want to be an ignorant fish in the tourist sea.

Have a look through this blog and you will find much of what you need to motivate inspire and convince you that Barbados is worth it.

Just to be absolutely sure check other tourist opions and views, some re-blogged here in our blog, and others around WordPress and the internet.

Now don’t be lazy. You will have plenty time to laze about when you arrive on the island 🙂 where you can stretch out and relax and take a stroll or leisurely tour.

Some visitors are cruise passengers who decide to give Barbados a look on their liner’s stop off at the island, and I bet they don’t regret it.

Seen one Caribbean island seen them all? Don’t think so.

When you are done lazing about and feel up to it try flyboarding, bike-hikes or get on a surfboard.

Or why not head out to a golf course, play tennis or cricket. Maybe watch the local lads at rugby?

And as the day draws to a close, dine extravagantly or simply.

Dance the night away, listen to local jazz musicians or curl up in you holiday home with a book as you listen to the surf lulling you to sleep.

Discover the unique beauty; the quirkiness of some of the islanders; the small island culture…and get outside yourself.

Let your hair down.


Stop and wonder as you wander the lovely places and beaches of this appealing little island.

Now you know some of what you’ll be getting for your hard earned cash.


Visit Barbados. It is worth it.
