An awe-inspiring coastline, perfect temperatures and the friendliest people in the world makes the affectation 'The Gem of the Caribbean Sea' appropriate as Barbados being the perfect choice for visitors. It’s no wonder UK holidaymakers return to this paradise over and over again. Without question, it’s an island of contrasts – sleek and modern in many ways, yet clearly still bound to the customs, traditions and religious influences of England.
