If you are interested in enjoying a holiday in the same manner as some of the world’s biggest celebrities, you will want to consider a visit to lovely Barbados. Though millions have visited this island because of its beauty, its wonderful atmosphere, and its amazing food, many come because it is also where the world’s biggest stars spend their holidays too.
Celebrities like Mark Whalberg, Simon Cowell, Rihanna, and Oprah all head to the island to enjoy the white sands, delicious foods, and excellent amenities, and many people emulate their example. You can spot them jet skiing around, dining in the local and the upscale restaurants, and shopping in all of the same boutiques open to you!
Bajan food is a huge part of your stay in Barbados, and we suggest all travelers make a point of dining at two top local establishments famous for celebrity spottings – Oistin’s Fish Fry and Cuz’s. Of course, you might also want to plan a few evenings at the five star restaurants in the west coast resorts.
After all, the island may be small, but it is dotted with towns and harbors that offer a distinctly European flair. Cafes and luxury boutiques stand shoulder to shoulder with shops offering locally made goods and stands packed with fresh fruit or fish. The pastel ice cream colors of many of the buildings are also part of the appeal, and you will experience a very casual and calm atmosphere that is unique among tropical getaways.
If you don’t have any desire to spot celebrities, you can still see some of the sites that they have made famous. For example, the Animal Flower Cave has appeared in several music videos, and even a television commercial starring Rihanna herself.
Maybe you are a fan of pups? If so, Simon Cowell sponsors the Hope Dog Sanctuary on the island, and you can offer support during your stay too!
You might also want get a celebrity experience by visiting an actual Concorde. Though the famous airline used to bring the wealthy and famous to the island, it is now defunct and one of the remaining planes is open to the public at the Concorde Experience. For a small fee, you get to go inside, get a tour, and see just what it was like to fly in the utmost style.
And while we are talking about style…
