How to Spend 3 Days in Barbados

How to Spend 3 Days in Barbados

With three days in Barbados, you have plenty of time to soak up the sun on the island’s renowned beaches, see top sights such as Harrison’s Cave, head out onto the water—and of course, taste some rum. Here’s how to do it.

Day 1: See the island’s main sights

Start your visit with a comprehensive tour of the island by bus or minivan, stopping by attractions such as Harrison’s Cave, Hunte’s Gardens, and Sunbury Plantation House. Excursions typically include hotel pickup and drop-off; some also provide lunch and a rum punch cocktail. Or, customize your itinerary with a private tour.

After lunch and a few hours spent relaxing on one of the island’s beautiful beaches, take in a beachside dinner show. These colorful events often feature musicians, fire-eaters, limbo dancers, and stilt-walkers, while offering insight into the island’s culture and history. Dinners usually include an open bar and round-trip hotel transfers.

Day 2: Get out onto the water

Book a cruise, or rent your own boat. Cruises usually take you along Barbados’ picturesque coastline, with a few stops for diving and snorkeling (including at a shipwreck site). Want to view marine life and the shipwreck without getting wet? Opt for a glass-bottom boat tour. 

Alternatively, sightsee or hang out on the beach for most of the day, then take a sunset catamaran cruise that includes snorkeling breaks and a glass of bubbly. Afterward, make your way to historic Holetown for dinner.

Day 3: Delve deeper

No trip to Barbados is complete without a tasting of its most famous rum, Mount Gay. Head for the Mount Gay Visitor Centre and learn all about Bajan rum production, history, and culture—before trying some for yourself. Afterward, visit a local chocolate factory. Or, stroll through UNESCO-listed Bridgetown on a food and heritage tour, stopping by locals’ favorite haunts to sample authentic Bajan cuisine.

Cap off a fun-filled 72 hours in Barbados by checking out the nightlife in Bridgetown and St. Lawrence Gap, where you’ll find a diverse array of bars, restaurants, and live music venues.
