Bridgetown Barbados

The largest city and the capital of Barbados, Bridgetown is renowned not only for it rich cultural and historical heritage and its welcoming, laid-back atmosphere, but for its breathtakingly beautiful surroundings as well. Add the delicious fusion cuisine that makes the Caribbean such a favorite with foodies, and you will see why Bridgetown, Barbados, is such a wonderful place.

Established in 1628 by Charles Wolverstone and 64 other settlers, Bridgetown became a city in the middle of the 19th century and has been growing and flourishing ever since. The tropical climate alternates wet and dry periods, with temperature that stays level the year around. The city is divided by the Constitution River, and it has some of the most beautiful beaches and most beautiful palaces in Barbados. The area boasts some of the best diving spots such as Animal Flower Cave with its coral floor and amazing beaches such as Bottom Bay, while the city has a lot to offer to those who prefer more urban attractions, such as the opportunity to view a horse race in the city’s historic racing venue, called Garrison Savannah Racetrack.
