When organizing your Golf experience in Barbados

Barbados is the easternmost island of the Antilles and is characterized by a typically tropical climate with warm temperatures all year round. There are two main seasons: the rainy season, hot and sultry, which lasts from May to October, and the dry one, a little cooler and with the thermometer attested to more pleasant temperatures, around a minimum of 21-22 ° C and at 28-30 ° C in principle, which runs from December to April. Although Barbados is a destination that can be visited all year, without major obstacles related to the climate, the best period is undoubtedly the one coinciding with this season, and in particular, from February to April. In fact, traveling during this period avoids the wettest months, although the rains on the island are rather irregular and, even during the rainy season, whole weeks of good weather can happen. In any case, the rains in Barbados manifest themselves in the form of intense but short thunderstorms, so they do not have much effect on sunshine. Even the sea on the island is hot all year round and allows you to make life like a perennial beach. In reality, the greatest danger is related to the Caribbean hurricane season that can hit Barbados from June to November, although the highest risk is limited to the months from August to October.

What to Eat in Barbados

It cannot be said that we have known a country to the fullest without having discovered its culture and traditions, all peculiarities that pass through the kitchen. An unwritten rule that I always repeat and that is absolutely valid even for a dream place like Barbados. Here, what happens between the stoves concerns a series of rites handed down for generations and eating well plays a leading role in society.

If you want to taste the real Banjan cuisine, you have to choose specialized restaurants, frequented by the locals and reported among the best structures of the island. There are many bars and clubs in this part of the world, but where you can enjoy the best of the creations that delight the palate and, above all, what to prefer. Here is a small guide to not miss any of the Barbados specialties.

Flying fish & coucou
This is the national dish, so it is even more important that it is prepared well. A place to taste it may be the Waterfront Café. Prepared with fried or grilled flying fish accompanied by cornmeal and okra. The latter is a typical tropical vegetable. It is seasoned with tomato sauce, onion, garlic and spices. The coucou is an ancient dish that has been introduced on the island since 1644 by slaves from Africa.

Pigtail BBQ
Let’s talk about street food, so try it in Barbados kiosks. It is the pig’s tail cooked on the grill and served with a sweet barbecue sauce or with rice and peas.

Pudding and souse at Lemon Arbor
On Saturdays in Barbados you prefer this dish which is an excellent dish for those who want to try Barbados cuisine. It is prepared with pork marinated in lime juice, cucumber and onion and served with a pudding made from the fruit of the breadcrumbs and spices. One of the best places to try this treat is The Village Bar in Lemon Arbor.

Sunday Brunch at the Fisherpond Great House
We are the holiday par excellence, with brunch, better if the one based on Bajan specialties served at Fisherpond Great House. The location is splendid because in the colonial house there is a 350-year-old plantation that welcomes guests in an atmosphere of other times.

Bajan cutter from Cuz’s
These are small sandwiches prepared with the typical salted bread of the island. They are stuffed with different ingredients ranging from fish, cheese and eggs and are flavored with a pepper banjan sauce. Try those at Cuz’s Cutters, a small wooden kiosk located near Pepples Beach

Banks Beer: Barbados beer
Produced since 1961 by Banks Breweries Ltd. opened in 1961 and since then has produced the most famous beer on the island, perfect accompaniment for the hottest days. It is found almost everywhere.

Mount Gay Rum: 300 years of history
It is the oldest rum in the world and has been produced locally for over 300 years. If you are interested, you can try a mini tasting course and visit the distilleries on the coast in front of St Michael.
