Celebrate World Earth Day (22 April), in raising awareness of the environmental protection and care of our planet, with Barbados as the island embraces sustainability and successfully continues to grow its eco-friendly ventures.
The island of Barbados offers an authentic Caribbean experience with its exceptionally rich culture and history rooted in remarkable landscapes. Barbados’ Crane Beach in St. Philip stands as a premier destination for travellers. Barbados is also the first Zagat-rated Caribbean island and is known as the culinary capital of the Caribbean. Barbados has hosted several world class events. Accommodations range from picturesque plantation houses and villas, to quaint bed and breakfasts and award-winning, five-star resorts.
From 1 April, the importation, retail, sale and use of petro-based single-use plastic (plastic made from petroleum) will no longer be allowed in Barbados.
The island attracted in excess of 620,000 visitors in 2018 and is committed to the fight against pollution, sustainable living and wildlife conservation.
Visitors to the island can enjoy the paradise vibe and immerse themselves in sustainable living at Barbados’ very own Eco Lifestyle Lodge, which features tropical gardens overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The Lodge’s eco lifestyle resonates throughout its rooms and communal areas, where upcycled mahogany furniture can be found, as well as swinging hammocks, and local crafts adorning the walls.
Wildlife conservation is another priority for the island; The Barbados Sea Turtle Project has been involved in the conservation of the endangered marine turtle species for more than 25 years. Its long term vision is to restore the local marine turtle population through research, education and public outreach.
Carlisle Bay in the south west of Barbados has recently become a designated marine-protected area, popular with divers, swimmers and snorkelers. Preserving Barbados’ coastline, the marine environment, the health of its reefs and habitats of the marine plants and animals is a continuous focus.
Stay at the Eco Lifestyle Lodge from just £1,318 per person. Price is based on 18 April departure including return flights from London Gatwick with seven nights room only accommodation.
