If you want swaying palms, warm crystalline waters, and powder-soft white beaches, Barbados holidays are for you. At Co-operative Travel we have bargain holidays to Barbados’ most popular resorts, including Bridgetown, Christchurch, Accra Beach and Crane Bay, to name just a few.
While most people book late deals in Barbados for the perfect beaches, the island has far more to offer than just sand, sea and sunshine. A sparkling island that resounds to the song of calypso music, a Barbados holiday offers culture and natural beauty too. A coastline of stunning silver beaches, coves and caverns is home to many varieties of marine life, while inland is a lush landscape of sugar cane plantations, Jacobean mansions, and picturesque candy-coloured houses. Wherever you go, the warmth and hospitality of the Bajan people shines through.

St James is an area on Barbados’s stunning west coast, where the main area of Holetown provides visitors with a glitzy shopping and dining experience, plus an electric nightlife. By day, St James’s white-sand beaches are where you’ll discover a brilliant blue sea and a coast dotted with tropical palm trees. St James Parish Church is another popular highlight of the area, with its charming Gothic architecture and stone inscribed to King William.
At the south of Barbados, the little town of Hastings is edged by some of the island’s most beautiful beaches. Hastings Beach is great for families, as the sea is warm, shallow, and perfect for paddling, despite there being some rocks. The beach boardwalk is a perfect spot to enjoy for a walk at any time of the day, while up on the promenade you’ll find all the facilities you’ll need for a full day on the sand: a children’s playground, fast food, showers, toilets, and a bandstand.
“The Gap” as it is known locally is a small street at the south of Barbados, where the businesses and people comfortably contrast with each other. Million-dollar properties stand beside budget accommodation, quiet bars and party nights have a few steps between each other, and street vendors sell food near restaurants serving fantastic fine dining. Go to the west side if you are looking for The Gap’s vibrant side, and the east side if you are looking to relax.
The parish of St Peter lies on the west coast of Barbados, and offers important historical sites, charming fishing villages, plus great hotels and restaurants. Speightstown is the home and rum plantation of St Nicholas Abbey, which is open to the public. The area is known for its amazing diving and spectacular beaches, and the Barbados Wildlife Reserve is not to be missed either, with its Barbados Green Monkeys, deer, peacocks, and more.
