Barbados

This is the Caribbean with an English twist. Tea time on Barbados is a serious daily event, but you don’t have to enjoy a “cuppa” to take to the sea. You will, however, need to know how to pronounce the name of the island’s signature dive, the wreck of an ex-Greek freighter, 110 metre/365 footStavronikita, although most divers simple call it the Stav. There’s also the 50 metre/165-foot long Pamir and wrecks of the Berwyn, C-Trek, Fox and Eilon in Carlise Bay. The wrecks host everything from sea turtles to seahorses. Above the water, Barbados is well manicured and exudes a civilized, structured and laid back air. Cricket is wildly popular, as are sports in general and you’ll find plenty of opportunities to kayak, hike, surf and fish. Nightlife is equally diverse, with live calypso and clubs, restaurants with a sophistical appeal and even dinner shows. And, don’t forget to sample some of the local and famous rums, such as Mount Gay.
