Crane Beach

Crane Beach

The sands are pink, the wind is strong, the water is a mix of turquoise and cerulean and the only sound is the waves crashing against the rocks – welcome to one of the most beautiful beaches you will ever lay eyes on. Head to the top of the cliff at the beach’s north end for the best views, and don’t even think about sticking a filter on all that natural beauty.

Bath Beach

Plush resorts have a habit of spoiling the natural majesty of the world’s best beaches, but thankfully this stretch of sand on the island’s east coast has yet to be noticed by a global hotel chain. The remote location means you’ll probably have to drive there, but the unspoilt, idyllic scenes that await are well worth it.

Remember that woozy coastal scene you pictured when you drifted off at your desk the other week? This is as close a match as you’ll find; golden sands, rocky outcrops and dinky beach shacks – it’s all there, and together it’s guaranteed to make your deskbound pals back home utterly jealous.

St. Margarets

Mount Hillaby

Mount Hillaby

The highest point on the island at 343m above sea level, from this vantage point you can see captivating views of the Barbados countryside and coastline. Don’t forget to strike your best ‘intrepid explorer’ pose as you take the short hike up the hill and have your picture taken next to the Mount Hillaby marker.

This is one of those secret views that locals take for granted. The UWI is on a hill, therefore the back gate grants an unspoiled view of the west and south-west coast. Among the many landmarks that can be seen are the Bridgetown Port and the Kensington Oval cricket stadium, all with a border of matchless blue waters and a rainbow of quaint little houses dotting the land.
