If you are looking for a bit of tropical paradise I highly suggest Barbados. The sand is unbelievable! Each time I see the luscious white sand beaches I want to throw my shoes off and dive into the sand. The sand feels amazing and the water is gorgeous.
The beaches on Barbados are tropical paradise. They are some of the most amazing beaches I have seen anywhere in the world. Even standing in the middle of the industrial area there is a slice of heaven on the beach.
One of our favorite places to visit on Barbados is the Banks Brewery. John says this is the best beer in the entire Caribbean. The last time we visited the island we took a tour of the brewery and then enjoyed a nice cold beer on the patio.
I love seeing the monkeys on the island. Our tour guide took us to the golf course where Tiger Woods was married. The marriage might not have turned out so great but there are monkeys there so that part is fantastic. The monkeys come out of the trees and sit and stare at you. Our tour guide fed them a banana. They are so dang cute and larger than I expected them to be.
If you are on a cruise there is a fantastic bar at the Barbados Cruise Terminal. I like to ask for a tropical surprise drink each time I am there. I am honestly not sure what is in the drink but it is downright amazing! Remember to drink them slowly because they are cold, tropical and can be a bit more intoxicating than you expect. The first time we visited Barbados we stopped and had a few drinks before getting back on the cruise ship. Lets just say I was very very relaxed by the time we made it back on the boat!
If you like jerk seasonings check out the stores on Barbados. John brought home a bottle of jerk seasoning the last time we were on the island and he loves it. He said that next time we are there he is going to buy a ton of them to bring home. He babied the bottle of jerk seasoning for months to make sure he savored each and every bite of it.
