Five Things To Do As a Couple In Barbados

Traveling as a couple can be exciting but before planning your trip, you should plan activities ahead to explore and experience new cultures for a fulfilling time with your partner. The Crane Concierge has put together a list of things you can do as a couple in Barbados.

1. Catamaran Cruise Tour

Explore the West Coast of the island on an all inclusive catamaran cruise. Choose a day time cruise where you can swim with the turtles and dive to view the coral reefs and other marine life; or choose a sunset cruise, to take in the dramatic Caribbean sunset in an romantic atmosphere. Couples can enjoy wine, rum punch or their beverages of choice throughout the tour and even shake a leg to the infectious music which is played. This can be a beautiful bonding experience for couples.

2. Submarine

Atlantis Submarine

Discover the marine life of Barbados by booking a tour on the Atlantis Submarines. Choose between a day dive, evening dive or a more romantic night dive. Discover the typically unseen marine life of the West Coast of the island in an air-conditioned submarine. Be amazed by the beauty of the shipwrecks, reefs and life on the reefs and share this special experience with your partner.

3. The Boatyard

When traveling to Barbados, you must go to the beach! The Boatyard has a host of beach activities including an ocean trampoline, iceberg climb, rope swing and more. There are also amenities such as showers, a pool table, darts and wifi. You and your spouse can enjoy tropical cocktails from the bar while you relax in beach chairs under an umbrella or even munch on lunch from the on site restaurant. The relaxing atmosphere encourages couples to unwind and enjoy each other's company.

4. Tour Mount Gay

Find out some of the secrets behind the world famous Mount Gay Rums. Tour the facilities and embrace the history of the world's oldest rum.
