Barbados is well known for its stunning beaches, but that doesn’t mean surfing and relaxing in the sand are the only ways you can enjoy this breathtakingly gorgeous island. There are several outdoor fun activities that allow you to get a nice tan while experiencing all that this place has to offer. Listed below are six of them:
Let’s Go Kayaking
Want to venture out into the ocean and explore the area without getting yourself wet? Then kayaking might be an ideal option for you.
Kick start your tour at Surfers Point (situated at the southern tip of Barbados) and travel over magnificent coral reefs, while observing the amazing underwater life. If you’re lucky enough, you’ll bump into a group of sea turtles. Don’t forget to say ‘hello’ to them and take a lot of snaps! These gentle and docile creatures are very friendly and enjoy interacting with new visitors that come their way.
Scuba Diving For The Adventurous
If this is something you’re looking forwarding to ticking off on your ‘Holiday To Do’ list, Barbados is the perfect vacation spot to do it. The stunning barrier reefs located a mere two miles from shore and home to Hawksbill turtles and hoards of beautiful fish, serve as the perfect location for scuba diving.
Now you’re probably saying to yourself…
‘Hang on, this place isn’t really known to be a cyclist’s paradise…’
Well, while that might be partly true, race bicycling and mountain biking happen to be hugely popular activities among the natives. So the next time you step outside of your hotel, team up with an experienced local guide and spend the day soaking up the delights of this incredible island, comfortably seated on a bike (image by tejvanphotos).
Fishing For Fish
Are you a fishing enthusiast?
If so, you’ll be pleased to know that the warm waters of Barbados makes for a fantastic fishing experience. From Barracuda to Tuna, you’ll be spoiled for choice.
On the other hand, if you prefer to take a fishing tour instead, get in touch with High Seas Fishing Charters or IOU Charters – two of the island’s popular Game Fishing Operators.
Get Ready For Some Hiking
There’s more to this destination than sandy beaches.
By stepping off the beaten track and traveling on foot, you’ll be able to explore the many incredible subtleties of Barbados and gain a fascinating insight into life on the island.
Who Else Wants To Go Paragliding?
This is not for the faint of heart, that’s for sure.
If, however, you happen to be an adrenaline junkie and the thought of flying thrills you to bits, make a beeline to the Tourism Department and book a paragliding trip – it’s guaranteed to be a ton of fun!
