Barbados is a siren for celebrities, who are lured to the island by its icing-white beaches and luxury hotels. There’s much more to this country than sand, sea and star ratings, though. It’s home to some of the world’s best surfing and scuba diving sites, the hallowed cricketing ground of Kensington Oval and a collection of the Caribbean’s leading rum distilleries. Here are just a few of the reasons Barbados is not to be missed.
