Bridgetown Flight Tips
Flights are most expensive and crowded during Bridgetown’s high season, which lasts from approximately mid-December to mid-April. You can fly and stay for less during the summer months, but keep in mind that many hotels, restaurants and attractions close in early fall and don’t re-open again until December.
Quick Travel Guide to Bridgetown
Barbados is the easternmost island in the Caribbean, and while it stands out among its neighbors for a variety of distinctions, its British heritage is what makes many Bajan experiences so memorable. In the midst of palm trees and cloudless afternoons, you can still find a great plate of fish and chips or take time for a traditional high tea.
Barbados is also set apart from many surrounding islands because of the sheer size of its cruise ship port. The substantial investment in the port has paid off, as Bridgetown is one of the busiest cruise stops in the Caribbean, but even if you aren’t setting sail, you should stop by and browse through the dozens of duty free stores stocked with international bargains and local handicrafts.
For many travelers, the hotels in Barbados are what bring them out in the first place. World-class amenities and unbelievable ocean-view rooms at Cobblers Cove Hotel, the Coral Reef Club and other Bajan resorts are well worth the trip, whether you’re embarking on your dream honeymoon or just getting away to relax and unwind. You can enjoy a memorable vacation without venturing farther from your resort than its postcard beach, but if you discover the urge to explore, you’ll find fun in just about every corner of the island.
