Beaches Near The Cruise Port in Bridgetown, Barbados

If you're visiting Barbados as part of a Caribbean cruise, one of the best ways to spend the day on the island is at one of our wonderful beaches.

Unlike many of our neighbouring Caribbean islands which are volcanic in nature (and hence have black sands), Barbados is a coral island with white sandy beaches.

The cruise port is located on the west coast of the island on the outskirts of the capital city Bridgetown. On this tranquil west coast the turquoise waters gently lap the shores, creating ideal conditions for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and jetskiing.

Vujaday Barbados Finale - Samples & Review


This video show a sample of the final night of the Vujaday Music Festival Barbados - It showcases Francesca Lambardo and Lee Burridge two of the international all star cast of renowned DJs.

You can actually see him tune to what they like and respond to their response instinctively.

Francesca added a smokey hot feel to her rendition of FEVER. Fever bubbled with a sultry tone for an impromptu birthday celebration with its own firework candles sparkling while champagne bubbled to the beat.

The stage lit up the night with its "pyrotechnic display of exploding lights bubbling across the screen".

Music Mastery at Red Door Lounge, Barbados

International rhythms & local culture blend in musical mastery as the latest hits, best classics, and greatest mixes fill the air at Red Door Lounge on the trendy west coast of Barbados.

Here's what some guests had to say about their experiences at the club:

The music at Red Door was definitely one of the best sets I have heard at an overseas bar with a great mix of old & new songs to change it up, "every song was a banger".
Music is great we danced all night!
dancing to the dj was a lot of fun
I’ve been to bars in countries around the world and this place is definitely among the best!
Love this place. Great drinks and great music. Want something to do on a Friday night? Look no further. Looking forward to going back!

Enjoying Barbados As A Family

With hectic schedules and digital distractions, it's easy to drift apart as a family, to lead separate lives, and even, despite all the activity around you, to feel alone.

The Caribbean island of Barbados is one of the best destinations for your next family vacation, with lots of activities and family-friendly events to experience, diverse dining options, and accommodation for every budget.

Best wishes for a wonderful family getaway on our beautiful island.
