The captivating clear blue water, luscious gardens, fabulous food and beautiful resorts are just some of the great things Barbados has to offer. Known as the gem of the Caribbean to all who live and vacation here, Barbados offers a variety of adventure, romance and luxury. Today, we’re sharing with you the 5 reasons why you should elope here in Barbados.
Barbados is located in the lesser Antilles and flying here is quite easy. There are direct flights from Miami, New York, Fort Lauderdale, Atlanta, Boston, Toronto, Germany and the UK with a few flights a day for ease and convenience.
Barbados has perfected the luxurious vacation (and wedding!)– which is why celebrities visit Barbados every year. Stay at Sandy Lane Resort, voted as one of the most Hotels in the world by Forbes, Travel & Leisure, and Condé Nast. Or stay in one of our many posh villas which range in style from modern to traditional Caribbean. You can hire your own renowned person on-site chef and have a personal butler cater to your every need during your stay.
Barbados has limitless amounts of activities for the adventurous couple– especially for those of you who want to skip a beach day and explore! Some fun activities include island touring, standup paddle boarding with complete training, snorkeling with the best snorkeling gear and ship wreck diving, swimming with turtles, hiking, and catamaran cruisin’ (for our friends who prefer adventure to begin and end with adult beverages!).
The Barbados culture is what captivates our visitors. Bajan’s take pride in their country and culture– and love to share it with anyone who visits. The food is some of the worlds best: from 5 star dining to rum shop haute couture, we have something for everyone. The local fish fry in Oistins on a Friday night is a great spot for local food, entertainment, and cheers with a cold Banks Beer.
Venues & Vendors
Barbados’ venues for destination weddings are endless. You can elope with your toes in the sand or in an old historical church. Our beaches are not private, so you have access to most beaches on our island for your unique elopement. If you’re looking for something beyond-the-beach, there are gardens, historical sites, plantation homes and even cliff side locations.
