Sandy beaches, sparkling blue ocean and authentic cuisine await

After a nine-hour flight, you could be enjoying the palm tree-lined beaches and rum punch for which Barbados is so well-known.

The selection of affordable hotels in St James, on the west of the island, means that even travellers on a shoestring budget can enjoy the pristine sandy beaches, sparkling sea and extensive selection of restaurants.

In contrast Hastings is perfect if you want to experience the island's beauty away from the crowds. This stunning coastal village enjoys white sandy beaches covered with washed-up shells and coral, and backed by numerous palm trees. And for those wanting to stay active, there are plenty of water activities such as snorkelling and jet skiing. Another option is Maxwell Beach, which is a quiet retreat by day but by night has a vibrant party atmosphere. If you're on a tight budget, pack a picnic and enjoy the cool shade of the woodland area near the beach.

Cheap days out in Barbados

With so many stunning beaches, it's often hard to choose where to soak up the Barbados sunshine. Paynes Bay is one of the most popular beaches on Barbados' western coast. The water here is calm and largely free from undertows, making it an ideal place to swim and perfect for snorkelling thanks to the shallow coral reefs. Jet skis and catamarans can be rented and there's a selection of bars and restaurants to enjoy too. Head to Barbados in summer and you can be part of the free Crop Over celebrations with music, dance, art and rum-drinking.

Exploring the island doesn't have to hurt your wallet – just hop on the colourful Bajan Buses and discover the artistic capital of Bridgetown. Or go trekking in the rolling green landscapes and you'll find national treasures like Harrison's Cave with limestone formations and tunnels. Meanwhile, the local corner shops and grand malls of the St James' shopping district offer a chance to get some retail therapy and hunt out a bargain, from jewellery to local artwork.

Other popular holidays in the Caribbean
