Two places of interest. Lovely soft sand beach, Carlisle Bay, in Bridgetown, past the Careenage. beach bar run by lady from Chester. English church, St. Johns, perched high on a hill, overlooking the wild coast at Bathsheba.

We did the Caribbean two years ago in april. We cannot wait to go back.Temp 79-85F dry heat so you do not feel tired all the time. I think it is the best time go to the Caribbean. sea warm beaches nice and clean not too many people about as the cruise time is drawing to an end about then. All the ports are very near the towns so you will not need a shuttle to get about. Use the local taxis they are very good but gewt e price first. WE used them to get to the nearest beach and pay them when they pick you up to take you back to the ship. Lots of water things to do enjoy i.

Wow! wish i was going back there just been on Carnival Destiny and had a week stay in Barbados just down from Sandy Bay. Fantastic! If you want to see the Island like we did get booked on a Teds Tour what a great time we had and was worth every penny lunch was included too. Have a super time, the weather will be hot not the rainy season either.
