Oistins holidays serve up the best barbecues in Barbados. Plus, you've got vanilla-white beaches and sightseeing trips to Bridgetown to keep you busy during the day.

The island’s best catch

You’ll find this place at the southern end of teardrop-shaped Barbados, with bar-lined St Lawrence Gap and the island’s capital, Bridgetown, both within a 20-minute drive. The town’s best known as the centre of Barbados’ fishing industry, so naturally the heart of the town is the bustling seaside fish market. Visit on a Friday or a Saturday night and follow the sound of reggae and calypso to the buzzing Oistins Fish Fry. Here, you can scoff your body weight in seafood, play dominoes with the locals and waltz with the old timers along the prom.
