Do you have a favourite beach? This sunset shot was taken on #Speightstown beach in #Barbados by LP author @CarolynBHeller. Many #Caribbean islands have nice beaches, but where #Barbados differs is what lies behind the azure-water and white-sand. No matter your budget or style, you can find a place to stay that suits you, whether cheap, funky, restful or posh. Away from the luxury resorts of the west coast and the well-developed south coast, however, is where you’ll find what makes the island special. Central #Barbados has a rolling terrain of limestone hills and amid this lush scenery are fascinating survivors of the colonial past. The wild Atlantic-battered east coast is a legend with surfers; those looking for action will find wind-surfing, hiking, diving and more. Away from the glitz, it’s still a place of classic calypso rhythms, an island-time vibe and world-famous rums. #LonelyPlanet #Travel #ComeExplore
