A honeymoon in Barbados is will make your tropical island dreams come true. In fact, it’s one of our favourites. The Caribbean sea lapping against the white sandy beach shores are the things that honeymoon dreams are made of of.

Along with the plentiful picture-perfect beaches, this island in the southern Caribbean packs a punch culturally despite its small size. On a honeymoon in Barbados, most couples will base themselves at a luxury resort or hotel on the west coast of the island. You can laze away the days by the pool or on a picture-perfect beach at an all-inclusive resort. But so much awaits outside your hotel, and you don’t need to look too hard to find it!

Hire a car and explore the rich history and beautiful scenery of Barbados. Stop by the UNESCO World Heritage Site capital city, Bridgetown. Visit historic plantations and learn about Barbados’s colonial past. Stop at off-the-beaten-track beaches or hike trails with spectacular views.

For night owls and party lovers, the birthplace of Rum is an obvious choice for a honeymoon. Explore the bustling nightlife of St Lawrence Gap and Holetown. Gastronomy fans will love the abundant restaurants sharing the freshest catch of the day. Try local dishes like flying fish and cou-cou (a mix of cornmeal and okra).

A honeymoon in Barbados is perfect for water lovers, too. With over 50 beaches, there is a spot to suit every couple on this friendly island. Go snorkelling, scuba dive to a shipwreck, see giant sea turtles and take a catamaran cruise. Enjoy the many water sports on offer, from sea kayaking to jet skiing. The south & west coast beaches like Crane Beach have gentle turquoise waves and soft powdery sand. You may prefer the wilder east coast like Silver Sands beach where you can go surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing.

Whether you’re looking for to kick back with a rum cocktail in a state of pure relaxation or if you want to get your adventure on, with its stunning beaches, luxurious resorts and vibrant culture, a honeymoon in Barbados will be unforgettable.

Consider adding another Caribbean island gem to your honeymoon itinerary for a beautiful island hopping honeymoon. Saint Lucia and Antigua are convenient add-ons but you can also visit some smaller Caribbean islands like Martinique, Dominica, Guadalupe or St. Vincent (to name a few). You could also explore other islands on a Caribbean cruise. There are also direct flights to and from Barbados to many North American cities, so consider a romantic road trip in the USA. A stopover en route in cities like Toronto and Montreal in Canada or New York and Miami would be wonderful additions, too.
