This beautiful island has so much more to offer than a beach holiday. The scenery in the interior is often stunning. Enjoy an island drive and seek out the old plantation houses and sugar mills.
Sunbury House is furnished as it was 200 hundred years ago; St Nicholas Abbey (a house, not a church) offers a fascinating film show and demonstration of how sugar cane was processed on the original steam powered machinery; Codrington College is a wonderfully tranquil spot approached through a spectacular avenue of royal palms.
Visit the extraordinary, wild East Coast and walk along miles of sand while the Atlantic rollers batter the reef.
Explore the tropical gardens – Huntes Gardens, Andromeda Gardens and Welchman Hall Gully are 3 of many.
The capital, Bridgetown, is about 30 minutes drive away and offers many interesting glimpses of its long history as well as being the starting point for a variety of yacht, boat and deep sea fishing trips and the Atlantis submarine.
Further afield, St Vincent and the Grenadines are a short hop in a light aircraft, as is St Lucia and other West Indies islands.
