Because Barbados is an island, a mass of land fully surrounded by water, there are only two ways to get here: by air or sea.
Barbados is a favourite stop for cruise ships, so that's a rather popular way of getting here. For ideas of what to do while travelling to Barbados for one day on a cruise ship, see our shore excursions page in the Barbados Vacation category below.
Barbados is the most easterly island in the Caribbean island chain. St. Lucia is the closest country to us. We are southeast of the United States of America, west of Africa, southwest of the United Kingdom and northeast of Venezuela.
If a cruise ship isn't really your thing, you can still enjoy travelling to Barbados by sail or motor boat from any of our neighbouring islands.
During the winter months, our bays are often full of people who are sailing around the world and who have come for a little stop-off in paradise.
