Planning a getaway with that special someone? Barbados is without a doubt one of the most romantic places on earth, with its white sandy beaches, clear turquoise waters and breathtaking sunsets. Here are just a few of the romantic things you could do while in paradise.
1. Catamaran Cruise
Sail around the West Coast of the island as you lounge on the open deck of a catamaran sipping Rum Punch and enjoying a delicious local buffet lunch. Sail in the morning for a chance to swim with the turtles and snorkel around the ship wrecks, or sail in the evening – just in time to catch that sunset.
2. Private Dinner on the Beach
Relax and dine with your toes in the soft sand as you enjoy the gentle sounds of the ocean caressing the shore, and a good glass of wine while you watch the sunset. Birthdays, honeymoons, wedding anniversaries, or just because, you and your loved one can indulge in a romantic dinner experience on the beach. Prepared with the freshest ingredients, your meal is served by your own personal waiter in a peaceful, dreamy atmosphere. Private dinners can be arranged with the Concierge at Sugar Bay.
3. Visit the Heart of Barbados: Harrison’s Cave
Journey underground to see what Mother Nature has been up to for the last thousand years. Stalactites and stalagmites, cascading waterfalls and crystalline waters can be seen while travelling on a cool electric tram. If you’re looking for a bit more of an exploration and don’t mind getting dirty, gear up as a knowledgeable tour guide takes you on an excursion of a lifetime with the Eco-Adventure Tour. Creep and crawl through cavern passages like the first explorers did, and get up close and personal with the formations.
4. Stroll the South Coast Boardwalk
Take a break from the sun lounger and take a leisurely stroll down the newly refurbished boardwalk – a wooden walkway along the South Coast where you can jog, amble, walk or just chill out. The fresh air and breaking waves are the best cure after a night out, and the cafes and restaurants dotted along the way make for a refreshing stop.
5. Rent a Car for an Epic Adventure
Renting a car is fairly easy to do in Barbados, it’s the driving on the left that might take some getting used to if you’re not familiar. Gear up for an island expedition traveling through the heart of Barbados, making your way along the beautifully rugged East Coast to Bathsheba, and making a stop at the Animal Flower Cave at the top of the island in St. Lucy.
6. Dancing the Night Away
St. Lawrence Gap (or affectionately known as The Gap) is a hub of nightlife with restaurants, bars, and nightclubs on the South Coast. Also on the South Coast is Harbour Lights, with their energetic Club Nights mixing free drinks with the hottest local and international music to provide the ultimate party fusion. You can also take a trip to 2nd Street in Holetown and visit Red Door Lounge for a blend of delicious cocktails and live music on select nights.
7. Couples Massage
Sometimes there’s nothing like a bit of pampering on your holiday. After all the adventure, why not indulge in a couples massage? Enjoy a full body therapeutic massage designed to relax the muscles and ease the tension away. Karma Spa at Sugar Bay Barbados has a variety of stress-melting options to work out those kinks.
8. Movie Night
Make it a date with a good movie, buttery popcorn, and a refreshing beverage. Snuggle up and enjoy Movie Night under the stars at Sugar Bay Barbados. If you feel like heading out, you can stretch out at the cinemas at the Limegrove Lifestyle Center in Holetown.
9. Horseback Riding
Whether it’s on the picturesque beaches or in the green fields of the countryside, horseback riding can be a fun and thrilling experience. Barbados offers a number of riding tours during the day or even at those special times when a full moon is hanging high in the night sky. You can take it nice and slow with an hour’s ride, or up the ante with a challenging three-hour adventure.
10. It’s Better Under The Sea: Private Tour with Atlantis Submarine
See the wonders of the ocean in five-star luxury with the Five Star Champagne Tour. You can arrange a private charter with our Concierge at Sugar Bay Barbados. Float effortlessly across the beautiful Freshwater Bay Reef with its abundance of marine life, spectacular coral formations, sea sponges, marine plants and colorful tropical fish. The friendly crew of the Atlantis is ready to serve you bubbly and tasty Hors D’oeuvres.
Finally, when it’s time to rest, a sun lounger and a bottomless Rum Punch are always within arm’s reach at Sugar Bay Barbados.
