Attractions and Places to Visit in Barbados

Barbados is a country located in the Lesser Antilles region of the Caribbean. The island was under the control of England (later the British Empire) from 1627 up until independence in 1966. Visitors to the island can explore this fascinating period of history in Bridgetown, the capital of Barbados. Alternatively, arrange a car hire from a well-respected company and take a road-trip around the island, you are sure to enjoy the uninterrupted sea-views. If the weather is good then stop the car and go for a swim. A particularly impressive sight is Mount Hillaby, the highest point in all of Barbados, and a well worth a visit.
