There's nothing quite like sitting back, rum (obvs) cocktail in hand, and watching the sunset across a beautifully secluded beach.
Isabel, Original Traveller
Barbados is very much an island of two halves – the glitz and glamour of the west coast versus the wilder, more rugged east coast.
And whichever of these options floats your boat for your Barbados honeymoon, we at Original Travel have the inside track on the best places to stay and things to do. If complete R&R is the order of the day then you've come to the right place; the Caribbean's laidback vibes (with a distinctly English twist in the case of Barbados) and picture-perfect beaches will make the stresses of the wedding process melt away. And if you do fancy injecting a bit of adventure into your honeymoon then there's plenty by way of water-based activities, from sailing to snorkelling and deep sea fishing, to keep you occupied. One thing that tends to fly under the radar about Barbados is the quality of the food, with some seriously good restaurants dotted across the island; everything from fine dining in luxurious hotels to delightful local eateries.
While most consider our winter to be the best time to visit Barbados (perfect for a winter wedding) it is something of a misconception to say that the summer months should be entirely ruled out due to the hurricane season. Granted, you should avoid September and October when the weather can be quite stormy but from April to August much of the Caribbean remains gloriously sunny. What's more, you'll get much better value for money during these times - needless to say we'll give you the inside track on getting the best deal.
