Barbados Things To Do and
Tourist Attractions

Barbados' attractions and the variety of things to do both are among the Caribbean's best as certainly the most culturally rich. As one of the first islands settled, Barbados is credited with starting Caribbean tourism. What it offers for visitors is different from most islands, including underwater and underground in addition to what you can see.

Oh, and also the things you can't see. Barbados is home to one of the most legends regarding "restless spirits" and we don't mean what comes in a rum bottle. Instead, we're talking about the moving coffins at Christ Church.
