Travel to Barbados and you’ll discover beaches where you can stick your toes in the sand and work on your tan. You’ll even discover that Bridgetown is a Unesco World Heritage capital. But Barbados offers you more than a typical beach destination. You can go off the beaten path and have a unique experience.
Go to Oistins for a Fish Fry
Do you like seafood? If you do, you’ll want to travel to Oistins, a coastal town in the southern portion of Christ Church parish. Not only can you dine on the day’s catch, but you can enjoy calypso, reggae, and pop music spun by a local DJ. You can also check out vendors’ stalls for handcrafts and souvenirs.
See a Movie at the Drive-In
Sadly, drive-in movie theaters have become a thing of the past in certain areas of the world. Luckily, Barbados still embraces the charm of them. If you’re traveling with the family, check out the Globe Drive In in Christ Church. Imagine seeing a family friendly film from the comfort of a car. If the kids get tired, they can fall asleep in the back seat. Bring snacks, pillows and blankets!
Visit the Nidhe Israel Museum
Get a glimpse into the Jewish history in Barbados by visiting the Nidhe Israel Museum, found in a restored 1750 Jewish community center. You’ll find that the museum does an incredible job of documenting the history of the Barbados Jewish community. If you’d like, visit the nearby Barbados Synagogue. It belongs to the Barbados National Trust and houses ‘Mikvah’, a Jewish ritual bath that’s protected by UNESCO.
Go Off the Beaten Path in Barbados
When you travel to Barbados, you’ll discover the richness of the culture, from the cuisine to music. I recommend staying at the all-inclusive Sandals Barbados resort. Why? Because it’s beautiful, and you don’t have to worry about a thing – everything’s included, from tips to unlimited dining at 11 restaurants, and more!
