Barbados is the most eastern island in the Caribbean island chain.
This pear-shaped island has a high density rate for its population
of around 260,000 in an area of only 430 square kilometres. It is
one of the few coral-capped islands in the region. Although it is
relatively flat compared to its volcanic neighbors, its mixture
of bustling towns and gentle, laid-back countryside surroundings
well make up for it.
The average annual temperature is about 26º C. The tropical
climate is suitable for sun-lovers and watersports enthusiasts as
it is not unbearably hot although it is bright and sunny. A hurricane
may strike the island anytime between June and October.
