Photo Diary: A Weekend In Barbados

By La Shell Reid Hoilett

I visited Barbados a couple times before but I went to visit my Uni friends which meant my trip was full of partying and maybe some beach. This time around, I saw the island with different eyes. I got a chance to appreciate it for it’s sheer beauty and amazing weather. I’m a beach person, so quite honestly, the beaches were all I needed to consider this trip a success. We found one close to where we stayed and my heart was at peace. It was calm, empty, the waters crystal clear and there was a guy selling a U shaped jam tart that was sent straight from the Gods. I needed nothing else.

But alas, my husband and our friend made sure we saw more of the island. And so we did. There’s nothing I can say that can do the island justice, so I’d let the photos speak for themselves. This treasure can only be discovered truly and fully in person, but until then, lemme help you out!

Can we just say hello to these beaches? I spent most of my time on one or the other. My favorite was Carlisle Bay. It’s on the southwest coast of the island and it is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!

We drove and explored the north coast a little bit. It’s very country and seems like a different island. The sea is quite rough on that side. We checked out Bathsheba, the Animal Flower Cave and an old sugar mill.

We spent a lot of time on the boardwalk as well. The water there is rough as hell, but it didn’t stop this gentleman from spearfishing.

On our last night we had dinner at Tapas which is on the boardwalk. The food and drinks were so good! Definitely recommended. There were so many other things we didn’t get to do, but we’ll save them for next time!

    Stunning photos! The one with the big rock is absolutely gorgeous, I’d love to go there some day cause I’m a beach person myself too but it may be out of our budget at the moment (we live in Europe so it’s quite expensive to get a flight there from where I am), if you got any tips on doing Barbados on a budget let me know cause I’d be very interested!
