Barbados Family Holidays

The island of Barbados has been a favourite with us Brits for decades and remains one of the most family-friendly destinations in the Caribbean today. Every resort we sell has bags of experience when it comes to welcoming families to their plantinum-blonde beaches and palm-flecked gardens and the warm welcome you'll receive from their staff is unrivalled.

We think it's impossible for children to get bored on a Barbados family holiday. A bold statement we know, but for starters the kids' clubs are packed with arts and crafts, beach games and organised movie nights that will keep young imaginations busy. Beyond the resorts, the island itself is similarly loaded with fun things to do for both young and the young at heart. Kids are bound to be fascinated by the tangle of British history that remains here, while there are plenty of undiscovered nooks and crannies to explore on a luxury holiday in Barbados, not least in the 1.5 mile-long Harrison's Cave (although we wouldn't recommend you letting them stray too far in there).

Elsewhere, the lush scenery makes for lovely family hikes, while the water sports you can enjoy are effectively endless. And after all that, the parent's can take advantage of the resort's babysitting service and escape to one of Barbados' fine rum distilleries. There are often plenty of excellent Barbados family holiday deals to sweeten your escape, even around popular times including Christmas and Easter.
