So you’re thinking of a Girls Getaway trip together, whether it be to celebrate a “Hen Do” or Bachelorette Party, or just thinking of leaving the boys behind and steal away for quality time with your best girlfriends.
No matter the occasion Barbados’ year round summer weather makes it a great place to visit with your girlfriends. Not only is Barbados a safe destination, the island offers options galore for everyone to enjoy; whether it be clubbing, surfing, pampering, cooking, shopping, great food and wine, or simply to rest and rejuvenate on the picture perfect beaches.
Deciding where to spend your time together can make or break your holiday experience. For some, a tranquil setting like Barbados’ West Coast is the perfect location. Others may prefer the livelier and faster pace setting on the South Coast.
How does having your own private beach house sound, with a cook and housekeeper to completely take care of you? Or, if you prefer something a bit more low key, how about a gorgeous beach front self catering apartment or condo?
Here are our suggestions for the Best Girls Getaway holiday in Barbados:
For the Ultimate in Pampering
Spend the day at the luxurious Coral Reef Spa; ask about their monthly specials and group treatments. Or bring the spa experience to your home, with in-house spa treatments such as massages, facials, manicures and pedicures whilst sipping on bubbles and cocktails.
For the Adventurous Ladies
Try Stand Up Paddle Boarding with Ryan at What’SUP, or learn to surf with Bruce Mackie of Paradise Surf; try scuba diving with Andrew at Eco-Dive Barbados; go zip-lining or take in a private guided bike ride or hike tour.
