We decided to go on a catamaran trip which involved snorkelling and lunch, we booked a Cool Runnings trip based on a recommendation from a friend.
We were told by a local that we should definitely head to these Bottom Bay but it seemed quite tricky to get to. We didn’t want to spend over $100 for a car hire, so we tried to figure a way of going by bus. Where we were based we could get a bus to Oistins, a town further south and then get another bus to Sam Lord’s Castle, from there we were to walk 20mins.
On our last day we decided to hire a car and explore with ease, we headed straight to Bathsheba, it was a 40 min drive across the country. With our google maps already loaded onto our phones, we were able to see a clear route to avoid the bus routes and hit the highways.
When you go abroad as a Brit, you generally expect your pound to stretch quite far. However in Barbados I was shocked that the majority of restaurants are SO EXPENSIVE. I was shocked.
Barbados is the first ever Caribbean island I’ve ever been to! I’ve always dreamed of the tropical hot islands with the bliss beaches, so I was super excited to go.
