Rest on pirate island. Barbados


Bearded island (Os Barbados) – got from explorers to its name, according to legend, because of the surprisingly lush vegetation of Fig trees that cover this amazing land. The island of Barbados, without exaggeration, be called one of the most picturesque and beautiful places in the Caribbean. Calm deserted lagoons with shining bright tones of turquoise water and a soft pale pink sand of the wide beaches are unreal. They look like sprinkled with powdered sugar candy in fairy tales.

Beauty serenity

On the beaches there is such serene peace, that everyone who is in this Paradise, inadvertently tries to chat in a low voice, because any loud sound just seems blasphemous in this pastoral picture. Here you can experience the full unity with nature, and even small crabs running about their business as if trying not to rustle the sand, and at the sight of the people they tactfully go in different directions.

It should be noted that in Barbados, the standard of living is quite high. It is possible that for this reason the locals are so peaceful and friendly. In addition, on the island, which is a dominion of the British Empire, absolutely everyone speaks perfect English, which is very pleasing tourists from all countries.
