Top Barbados Activities

Let our friendly local team at the Coconut Court Beach Hotel help you plan your Barbados experience. We’re happy to recommend our favourite points of interest, from popular guidebook activities and attractions to lesser known, off-the-beaten path gems only a local would know about. Many Caribbean islands have beaches, but Barbados offers so much more than surf and sand! Steeped in history, architecture and excellent cuisine – with arguably the friendliest locals in the Caribbean – Barbados is a fabulous place for the explorer as well as the beach bum.
