Island Hopping in West Coast

Because of Barbados' geographical position andas an airline hub, this is the perfect jumping offpoint for little jaunts to neighboring islands. Aflight of about 45 minutes can take you to placesof diverse Caribbean beauty and charm.

For lush volcanic mountains, try Grenada, St. Lucia, St. Vincent or Dominica. For multi-cultural hubbub, visit Trinidad. For a few days' sailing from port to port, hop down to The Grenadines and charter a yacht through the little islands that time forgot. You can also sometimes go for the day – fly over in the morning, sail all day and come home feeling like you've been away for a week. If life is about making memories, this is one you won't want to forget!
