Hi, welcome to watchmojo.com. Today, we’re going to be talking about Barbados. Barbados is one of my favorite places to visit. It’s hot and very, very sunny. You have to be careful, I’m not kidding you.
I was sitting on the beach actually last year in Barbados and a man came up to me and he said, “Little red head, you better go inside or we all going to be having lobster for dinner.” True story, but it’s a really fantastic place to visit. Everybody there is really open and welcome and I want to share with you a few fun facts about Barbados.
What a lot people don’t realize is that during the Second World War, a lot of people not just Jews but intellectuals were being targeted and other minority groups were fleeing in Nazi, Germany. And States had essentially just said, no more we’re not taking anymore people. And so a lot of people were able to survive the war by getting on trader ships that were going to the West Indies to places like Trinidad and Barbados, so as a result there’s really a fantastic culture there.
Barbados is a fantastic place to visit because it’s one of these little Caribbean Islands that makes you feel like you’re far away but at the same time it’s rather high skill.
Let’s talk about night clubs in Barbados. I think the best one is Harbour Lights. It’s actually in Marina Villa on Bay Street St. Michael. And the things that are great about Harbour Lights is that it is right on the beach, so you’re in the night club but you’re right on the beach at the same time and they play great music, great drinks and it’s a great vibe. And it’s just—it’s a fun, fun place to go there.
Obviously if you’re in Barbados you want to check out fish. It’s their major food, their major export and you want to check out the place called Champers, but if you’re a little bit more worry about weird food then you can check out Bubba’s which is totally American ice cuisine.
Here is something that you must do when you’re in Barbados, not hugely expensive. You can take different catamaran rides and why these catamaran rides are so fun is that you put on a boat and first of all it will take you on a tour of the entire island. You just stop at different beaches and they let you get off and swim and they let you get off and see these different beaches. And they also give you the option of snorkeling if you want. And when I was there we went swimming with these giant turtles that they were bigger than us.
Another great that you have to check out is Acra which is a beach splash resort where a lot of people, a lot of the locals go and that they will have beach passes and be able to use the facilities but if you’re not in town you could go and actually rent a room there. It’s really beautiful right in the water.
The last thing I would tell you about Barbados is just to take a good long walk to a Bridgetown, it’s not very big. Bridgetown is kind of their city center. A lot of their buildings are pink and really it’s a sort of almost festive looking, but nice and I really found when I was there. I was really surprise at how many up skill stores there were and how many different sorts of people you run in too. So, Barbados is really interesting and I would definitely check it out. And people—locals when you’re there. I think you’re really enjoy it, bye-bye.
