Clockwise Barbados | Destination

You can explore your way entirely around the island of Barbados in a single day, enjoying extraordinary beaches, historic architecture, and landscapes varying from gently rolling to dramatically rugged — as in our “clockwise” itinerary

Just outside Oistins, Miami Beach shows why the sandy shores of Barbados’s south coast are so popular with bathers: warm turquoise water, gentle waves breaking on white sand, and a skyline of pine trees swaying in the breeze.

The historic parish church, a whitewashed Georgian structure dating from 1837, sits atop a hill near the village of Fairfield.
