HistoryHeritage & History

Barbados, as like many other Caribbean countries is steeped in rich heritage and history. Throughout the history of Barbados, perhaps nothing has stood out more that the rise of the sugar cane industry and thus the importation of black slaves from West Africa.

Barbados has a number of areas considered to be "hot spots" by party goers. A favourite is St. Lawrence Gap on the South Coast. Known simply as "The Gap" the well- lit district has long been a place for both visitors and locals to party, with its wide brick sidewalks making it ideal for pedestrian traffic through the wee hours of the morning. The Gap is as famous for its restaurants as it is for its nightclubs, partying, and provides the perfect opportunity for an evening of dinner and dancing.
