Christmas and the New Year period is peak season in Barbados. Visitors from around the World flock here to soak up our warm sunshine, lay on our sandy beaches and experience our friendly Bajan hospitality. If you have not yet booked your holiday villa rental contact us now at BarbadosBarbados.com so we can help you with your search.
For those of you who have chosen to swap your winter coats, mittens and snow shovels for swimsuits, sunscreen and palm trees this Christmas, we have compiled a Calendar of Events of what is happening on the island during the holiday season.
Please note that many establishments do not formalise their actual Christmas/New Year programmes until around October/November each year. We are now beginning to get some information in so this page is a “work in progress” and you should check back frequently to see the latest updates.
***CHRISTMAS DAY ***
Many restaurants are closed on Christmas Day, with the exception of restaurants within the hotels and a select few which will be added here as soon as the information becomes available.
***NEW YEAR’S EVE ***
Old Year’s Night as it’s known in Barbados, is a special evening for locals. Typically the celebration lasts until dawn with the brave and hearty heading to the East Coast for sunrise. Here’s what we’ve found going on that night:
The Mews Restaurant is the first restaurant to publish their New Year’s Eve event! Their Five Course Dinner Menu has been specially crafted by Executive Head Chef Anife to showcase the best of Barbadian produce, with special touches for the festive occasion. Your reservation includes access to our exclusive After Party!
