Why Barbados is the Ideal Honeymoon Getaway Location

Why Barbados is the Ideal Honeymoon Getaway Location

There's no place quite like the Caribbean when it comes to romance. But, for a sophisticated sun-seeker's honeymoon, one island stands head and shoulders above the rest.  A celebrity haunt and long-time favourite of the royal family, Barbados is not only accessible to all, but its remarkable natural beauty and laid-back lifestyle make it the perfect choice for newlyweds seeking memorably authentic experiences on their Caribbean honeymoon.


Sun, Sea and Sand

Barbados' chief calling card has always been its perfectly pristine beaches. Home to the Caribbean's best beach - Crane Beach - the island's shorelines have long attracted newlyweds craving the warmth of soft, sun-baked sand between the toes.  Few experiences can be more perfectly suited to the start of a couples' new lives together than gazing out at the turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea while sipping an ice-cold Banks Beer or refreshing tropical cocktail.


Nature's Best

From the rocky, wind-whipped Atlantic Coast to tranquil West Coast kissed by the Caribbean Sea, Barbados has no shortage of romantic backdrops. Fall in love again at the sight of the underground waterfalls and limestone formations of Harrison's Cave or visit the Flower Forest  in the island's centre, where a heady mix of aphrodisiac fragrances and tropical flora awaits.


Honeymoon Adventures

Barbados has a wide range of activities for adventurous couples.  Board a luxury catamaran to swim with the friendly turtles or drink a 'Bajan' Rum Punch and dance with locals onboard the Jolly Roger - a pirate themed party ship.  Hop on a jet ski for a unique and speedy island tour or explore a sunken wreck just off the island's coast.


Dining and Nightlife

Known as the culinary capital of the Caribbean, Barbados invites honeymooners on a culinary journey as they taste their way through the world's cuisines. Indulge in Caribbean/International cuisine on the beautiful patios of  Champers Wine Bar & Restaurant or be swept up in the romance of the intimate, torch-lit terrace overlooking the Caribbean Sea at The Cliff Restaurant. Then, dance the night away to lively island music - Soca, Reggae and Calypso - at Harbour Lights or the West Coast's star-studded Elbow Room and Red Door Lounge.


Relax in Luxury


Located on the tranquil South East Coast of the island, the historic Crane Resort offers the ideal accommodation and naturally beautiful setting for an idyllic honeymoon.  Our special welcome for honeymooners includes fresh flowers in-suite and a chilled bottle of wine on arrival.
