Barbados Atlantis Submarine Tour

The Atlantis Submarine tour is one of the most thrilling Caribbean experiences. We have done the Atlantis tour off St. Thomas in the past and I am sure the Barbados submarine is comparable. Also a great thing to do with children!

Beaches: Bottom Bay in Barbados

barbados-beach.jpgIt takes the know how of a local guide to find this beach. In getting there you'll see few signs, and after a myriad of twists and turns in the road, if you find Bottom Bay on the first try you'll feel like Kreskin on a good day. Fortunately for beach lovers the remoteness of this beach is in direct proportion to its beauty - which is a good thing as it hasn't been overrun with tourism. Fortunately, no hotels have been built here, however, housing developments are creeping ever closer to the bay. So far it is still an undeveloped area, with the beach predominantly used by locals. Framed by cliffs on all sides, a grove of strikingly tall palm trees sprout skyward from the sand. There are steps cut into the rocks creating a pathway leading down to the beach, which as you near the water, you'll find your feet sink into the enveloping golden sand. The beach is on the Atlantic side of the island, so the surf can get very rough. Back on top, along the rim of the cliff looking down onto the beach, you can peer out into the open sea, yet still be below the summit of the graceful palms. Tip: Bottom Bay is on the located on the southeast coast east of Sam Lord's Castle.

Barbados Airport Information

Arrivals is smooth, and Departures features a good range of stores and eateries, as well as plenty of comfortable seating. Meanwhile you will walk to the tarmac-parked aircraft, rain or shine - No jetways or buses here.
Outside the terminal: There are a couple of banks, a variety store, a fast food restaurant and a bar serving up coffee and sweets.

Inside Arrivals: There is a bank (open 6:30am-9pm daily) where you can change into Barbados dollars, a tourist board office, and a store offering sun lotion etc., that won't likely stay in operation long, and most peculiarly, a duty-free store. Yes, you can buy some alcohol on arrival and bring it to the hotel with you! There are lots of skycaps here to assist with heavy luggage.
