Bridgetown

Bridgetown is the capital of Barbados. It's the only city, over half the island's residents live here, and many more commute in. It's a regular port of call for cruise ships and has good duty-free shopping. The well-preserved centre is attractive and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The main sights in the city are the Careenage - the original harbour around the river - and Garrison Savannah the 18th & 19th-century military area a mile south.

Southern Barbados

Barbados
Southern Barbados is one of the main tourist bases of Barbados. Starting just beyond the Garrison Savannah district of Bridgetown, the parish of Christ Church is a strip of hotels, bars and restaurants along Highway 7, one long traffic jam honking its way through Hastings, Worthing, Rockley, Saint Lawrence (the main party zone), Oistins and Silver Sands. This south-facing section of coast is good both for water-based activities and family bathing. East of the airport is Saint Philip parish: this has fewer hotels and amenities, the coast trends north-east and becomes rugged and the seas are stronger.
