Barbados

A destination offering an array of wreck and reef dives.

Barbados is the perfect destination offering an array of both wreck and reef dives combined with nature, hiking, culture, history and luxury.

Insider’s View

Barbados may be a relatively small island, however, where it lacks in size it certainly makes up for in charm! This quintessential, relaxed yet fun loving island makes for a wonderful diving destination. Offering some of the best restaurants around with bars and nightlife on hand if that is your thing, if not, a nice quiet drink over the looking the ocean is always a perfect end to the day!

With an array of holiday accommodation available from luxurious hotels to self-catering apartments, guesthouses, and beach cottages, there really is something to suit everyone. It is the perfect place for divers, groups, friends, couples, for a diver holidaying with a non-diver and with first-hand experience I can assure you this gem is awesome for families with young or older children!

Barbados is home not only to some exhilarating wrecks, the most famous SS Stavronikita but also to some of the heathiest Caribbean reefs. The reefs of Shark Bank, Maycocks Bay and Bell Buoy are well preserved and attract some very welcome creatures including sea turtles, rays, lionfish, reef squid numerous parrotfish and much more.

On non-dive days why not take in a day at the races enjoying the Garrison Savannah racetrack, partake in a fun afternoon tantalising your taste buds at the Mount Gay rum distillery in Bridgetown or explore Harrison Cave.
