It's Barbados Independence Day!

Inspiring Travel Company | 30 Nov, 2015

Today, 30 November, is that day the Barbados celebrates its independence. 49 years ago, the newly independent state celebrated with a parade at Garrison Savannah - a horse racing course with a history dating back to 1845 - and today its still held in the same location! Other highlights include the Barbados Parliament Buildings and other iconic locations being lit up in gold and blue to match the Bajan flag and the general bustle in the streets as locals enjoy their national holiday!

At the Inspiring Travel Company, Barbados will always have a place in our hearts, as it was on this island in 1974 - just eight years after independence - that it all began for us, too. We started out sending discerning clients to this exclusive isle and, over 40 years and many more destinations on, it's still a firm favourite!

Celebrating in style...

Of course, luxury resorts and hotels across the island will be celebrating in classic Caribbean style, and visitors to the island are surely in for a treat! Whether enjoying fine-dining at Sandy Lane's L'Acajou, or taking in the relaxed vibe at Harold's Bar at The Sandpiper - there are sure to be high spirits and plenty of treats.

Sandy Lane

At trendy Ocean Two, for example, guests can enjoy a sumptuous Bajan Buffet Dinner this evening, featuring regional classics with ingredients like okra, yellow split peas and lots of freshly caught seafood. Yum! This will all be accompanied by Mount Gay Rum cocktails, what else?
