Barbados Islands Yacht Charter
Barbados is a coral island, which has pushed out of the sea by a volcanic activity years before. Barbados is rich with island life and culture and has more white sanded beaches, nightlife and nature than you can ever digest.
The main city, Bridgetown, is one of the most intriguing in the hemisphere and has been named a Unesco World Heritage site for its hundreds of old colonial buildings and rich history.
The name Barbados comes from a Portuguese explorer, named Pedro Campos in 1536, who originally called the island Los Barbados -The Bearded Ones, upon seeing the appearance of the island’s fig trees, whose long hanging aerial roots he thought resembled beards.
The south and west coasts in Barbados have the kind of dreamy sand that you fly for hours to enjoy. Barbados’ west coast has lovely tranquil beaches that are largely hidden by the majority of the island’s luxury hotels and walled estates. Known to some as the Platinum Coast, it gets this moniker either from the color of the sand or the color of the credit cards.
