NEW UPDATED EDITION FOR 2019

New edition features a quick guide to the Top 5 beaches and attractions

This insider’s guide reveals the island’s best-kept secrets, so you can feel like a “regular”, even on your first trip, and find activities for the whole family!

  • Find the best beaches, away from the crowds...
  • Learn the stories behind the sights
  • Plan your holiday before you leave home - and make sure you pack the right stuff!
  • Benefit from local knowledge
  • Make the most of your hard-earned vacation
  • This book is small enough to fit in your pocket

Did you know that Bajans were among the first to produce rum? Or that the grapefruit was bred in one of the island's gullies? Russell Streeter does. He also knows where the most tranquil beaches are, where the turtles swim and nest, and where you can savour the best fried fish.

In this information age, it can be challenging sifting through all of the data and finding what’s really useful. So instead of trawling through the Internet, this insightful book will help you to navigate the best that Barbados has to offer.

A great resource for anyone traveling to Barbados. I purchased it in preparation for my 4th trip there and found it to contain lots of great nuggets of information. Great to have the inside track from someone who lived there!

- RM Brown, Amazon.com verified purchase

Like most people I was expecting "more" initially. It's a very small paperback, and arguably not "worth" the price. But actually I think it IS worth the price as it's written with no advertorial bias and simply provides a rational and ordered list of things to do including reviews of the main sights/tourist attractions and the many different beaches. As a first timer to Barbados I found it very useful for helping plan what to do during our stay. One thing it's missing is a decent map, but there are plenty of these available on arrival, in bars/restaurants, or as App downloads on your phone. And there's no restaurant review but TripAdvisor covers this just fine. As a first timer to Barbados I found it very useful for helping plan what to do during our stay.

- AJ London, Amazon.co.uk verified purchase

It was really helpful when visiting the island. Info is accurate and personally presented which makes it a pleasant read as well as helping you see the best on Barbados. After all, it is not everyday you get the chance, so you want to make the best of your visit.

- Madame, Amazon.co.uk verified purchase

This colourful book features:

  • 38 beautiful beaches to relax on;
  • 39 engaging attractions;
  • 24 fun activities to keep you out of trouble!
  • Lists of major tour operators with contact details;
  • Summaries of the major scuba diving sites around the island;

Plus over 30 full-colour pictures, a short guide to local cuisine and a list of major annual cultural and sporting events

All this for less than the cost of a good meal!

This book doesn't include every beach, rum shop or building that the Queen or George Washington ever stayed in. There are no details of hotels or restaurants - because Trip Advisor is the best place for such information.

The new edition takes on board much of the feedback (good and bad) that readers have provided over the past 4 years, whilst keeping the goal of being your personal guide to the best that Barbados has to offer.

There's more to Barbados that the beaches. With this book you can feel like a regular even on your first trip!

  • HACKETT
Product Description:
Ligon's True and Exact History of the Island of Barbados is the most significant book-length English text written about the Caribbean in the seventeenth century. [It] allows one to see the contested process behind the making of the Caribbean sugar/African slavery complex. Kupperman is one of the leading scholars of the early modern Atlantic world. . . . I cannot think of any scholar better prepared to write an Introduction that places Ligon, his text, and Barbados in an Atlantic historical context. The Introduction is quite thorough, readable, and accurate; the notes [are] exemplary! --Susan Parrish, University of Michigan

Absolutely Barbados: One Man's Mission to Discover the Heart and Soul of a Caribbean Paradise

By Julian Armfield

Miller Publishing Company Limited
Released: 2015-05-31
Kindle Edition (198 pages)

Absolutely Barbados: One Man s Mission to Discover the Heart and Soul of a Caribbean Paradise
 
Product Description:
Author and BBC broadcaster Julian Armfield came to Barbados for ten days, met and married a Bajan beauty, and stayed forever. He quickly discovered that life on a vibrant Caribbean island was going to be hugely different to that in a sleepy English village. Narrated in an infectious upbeat rhythm, Absolutely Barbados follows the fiercely curious author around the island as he explores and embraces every aspect of Barbados’ lifestyle, culture and heritage, meeting a host of beguiling characters along the way. Julian’s compelling story will enchant, amuse and enlighten anyone who lives in Barbados, Bajans abroad and all those who come to visit either on holiday or to work on this gem of the Caribbean Sea.

Armfield said: “I was fascinated by the challenge of an outsider becoming an insider and now feel that I am almost a Bajan myself. My hope is that Absolutely Barbados will serve as a reminder to readers of why we all love Barbados so much and bring a smile to people’s faces. The book is pitched at Bajans living here and abroad, visitors and newcomers who come here to work.”
