Let us get started. One great thing is that you can enjoy a relaxing golf game. This island even boasts a great local Golf Club, being able to provide any information you might need.

You can enjoy a great visit to the Mount Gay Rum Factory, to see how the real, old rum is made. This definitely impresses you, as the factory's history is impressive. The most important stop is at the Mount Gay bar, a great, traditional place where you can taste different, good quality rums. You should definitely experience this, as it is a unique, yet representative top thing in the area.
Of course, what is a vacation without experiencing an excellent cuisine in a beautiful, local ambiance? Dining in style creates one of the most delighting activities. Many restaurants offer you great food choices, and you can try all kinds of fresh seafood specialties. One great restaurant you should consider is Josef's, favorite by many locals and tourists because of its romantic ambiance. As well, try Tapas, a seaside restaurant, which you can find along the south coast of the island.
As well, another fantastic activity turning in a wowing experience is swimming with the turtles, in sparkling-clear blue waters. While swimming, you might find yourself guarded by these giants, yet gentle creatures. There are also other water activities, involving snorkel and scuba diving. Roger's company provides for you complete scuba equipment and helps you to find the best diving spots. You can also take some surfing lessons, appreciated by many tourists. As a beginner, you can try the west and south coast of the island, while, as an expert surfer you may experience a high level of difficulty, by trying out the east coast, where huge waves splash against the desolate shore.
Another great and relaxing way to spend your time is to rent one of those open-air jeeps and drive around the island, exploring unique places. A beautiful location to visit, St. Lucy, is placed to the north of the island and offers dramatic views. As well, you can stop at Bathsheba, a place from where you can admire the great force of the Atlantic Ocean, or at Round House to watch daredevil surfers, breathing the amazing life that Barbados Island offers them.
