Hotels [edit]

Hotels in Barbados are generally quite expensive and of high level. Some budget guesthouses are located in the place called Saint Lawrence Gap on the south end of the island. It is better to book a hotel in advance, as it may be hard to find a room just after you arrived to the island.

Brandons beach may be useful to the passengers of cruise ships, as it is located just to the north of the port.

South and West of Barbados are best for beaches. East of the island is interesting only for waves.
