The 10 best things to do in Barbados

Famous for posh resorts and sugary sands, Barbados is perhaps best known as the birthplace of rum – and Rihanna. Just 21 miles long and 14 miles wide, the most easterly island in the Caribbean (known as “Little England” for its still close connection to the U.K.) offers a refined vacation, but also one of the priciest in the region. When you visit “Bim” (as locals call it) you’ll want to make the most of both your time and your money. Our suggestion: Put these 10 things on your to-do list and you’ll leave not only with a broad appreciation of the island but also a few dollars still in your pocket.
