1. Awesome Beaches

On the west coast of Barbados is the Caribbean sea. The east coast, however, meets the Atlantic ocean. One small island with the best of both worlds is two for the price of one. And who doesn't love a good deal? Beach bums looking for a relaxing day of sun bathing and water wading can chill on the mild beaches of the west coast. Surfers can head to the east coast where conditions are windy and waves are wild. The sand in Barbados is really white, and thanks to naturally clean, coral-filtered water, the water is an electric blue.
