Coral Magic in Barbados

Unlike many of our neighbouring Caribbean islands which are volcanic in nature, Barbados is a coral-capped limestone island.

Various corals can often be found washed up on the beach and these make interesting souvenirs (and very effective paperweights). Remember never pick live coral from the reefs.


Beachcombing is a wonderful activity for the entire family - be on the look out for tropical shells, sea fans and of course the various corals.

Much of Barbados' water supply is naturally filtered through our limestone base before being treated. Barbados water is safe to drink from the tap. (There is also a desalination plant on the island that converts sea water into drinking water).
