Barbados in November – Winter Sun Island Paradise

The Caribbean has always been a popular choice among holiday-makers that love sun and sea jaunts away. Constant sunshine, cocktails, gentle waves of a stunningly clear blue sea lapping against the sand, and an occasional cooling breeze is an appealing holiday option.

So when friends of my wife, whose work in yachting had led them to regularly visit the Caribbean, suggested we consider it for our November break we investigated further.  As this fell at the latter end of the Hurricane season, they recommended somewhere in the South Caribbean which would be less likely to be troubled by storms.

Why choose Barbados?

One of our reasons for choosing Barbados was that it is a direct flight from the UK (Thomas Cook Airlines offer return flights from £399.99) – and surprisingly only seven and three quarters hours away. British visitors will also appreciate that they drive on the same side of the road as us (left side) – which makes hiring a car a fairly comfortable experience.
