Located on the southern coastline of the wonderful island of Barbados is the quiet town of Worthing. If you are looking for a holiday which offers breathtaking views of the ocean, privacy and the option to indulge in some activities, then a Worthing rental villa is the perfect choice for you. A Worthing rental villa will not leave you disappointed and caters for all types of holiday genres.
The first place that you are likely to head to after settling into your Worthing rental villa is Worthing Beach. This is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island and has a lot to offer the visitor. You can simply relax on the clean white sand or indulge in a myriad of water activities including jet skiing, surfing, snorkelling, sailing, fishing and windsurfing. Worthing also offers the opportunity to take part in other outdoor activities such as horse riding, golf, tennis, walking and swimming.
Approximately 6 kilometres to the east of Worthing is the main town of the Christchurch region, Oistins. The beach at Oistins is amazing although somewhat busy due to the fact that it is under the flight path of the planes arriving at the airport. Many visitors love to lie on the warm sand and indulge in watersports such as windsurfing and jet skiing.
In recent years, the Fish Fry which happens on a Friday and Saturday night in Oistins has become very popular with tourists. Indeed, it is the second most popular attraction on the whole of the island. The Fish Fry is an opportunity to savour some traditional Barbadian food including sweet potato, fish cakes and freshly caught grilled fish. Oistins is also now home to the annual Fish Festival on the island, which honours the contribution that fishermen have made to Barbados. Visitors can join in with the various activities during the Fish Festival including the bizarre greased-pole competition and the fish boning competition.
Visitors will enjoy a Worthing holiday thanks to the wonderful weather to be found on Barbados. The island enjoys a temperate tropical climate which means that temperatures are often well into the low 30s. During the dry season the daytime temperature rarely falls below 25°C. The wet season lasts from June to November but any showers of rain dry up very quickly thanks to the heat. Hurricanes and tropical storms are very rare on Barbados due to the fact that it is located outside of the main hurricane belt.
Travellers will fly to the only airport on Barbados, Grantley Adams International Airport (BGI), which is less than 7 kilometres journey to the east of Worthing. Major airlines such as BMI, Thomas Cook Airlines, Virgin Atlantic, British Airways and Thomson Airways offer regular, cheap flights to Barbados. Holidaymakers can depart from various UK airports including Liverpool (LPL), Manchester (MAN), London Heathrow (LHR), Gatwick (LGW), Aberdeen (ABZ) and Glasgow (GLA).
