While it's justifiably famed for its fantastic beaches, Barbados is an island that has it all. In addition to fine powdery sand and brilliant turquoise bays, you'll find smashing nightlife, a Unesco World Heritage–listed capital, a beautiful interior dotted with gardens, and wild surf on the lonely east coast, all inhabited by a proud and welcoming populace
Barbados personalities are no exception to the rule, but Barbadians (also known as Bajan) will surprise with their warmth, casual charm and sophistication. The island is a reflection of its people.
One of the most popular markets is the Oistins Fish Market.
This mid-sized market always has a wide selection of the freshest fish.
Flying fish is one of the most popular catches. Other favorites are marlin, king fish, bill fish, mahi-mahi, swordfish, snapper and tuna.
Each Friday and Saturday night, hundreds of locals and visitors flock to Oistins for the Fish-Fry, an opportunity to enjoy the very best local food - fried and grilled fish, fish cakes, sweet potato, macaroni pie, and coleslaw.
What ever your preference, be it white rum, dark rum or flavored rum, the locals endearingly call it ‘liquid sunshine’! This sweet golden nectar is a fundamental part of the nation's culture, the birthplace of the Caribbean’s favorite liquor.
