The beaches of Barbados are among the best in the world. These pictures were taken from the Barbados Hilton at Needham's Point. The beaches consist of fine, white (almost stone colored), and sandy. I would also say that the waters and horizon seem to hold more shades of blue than other Caribbean islands. In keeping with its British roots, I would say the Barbados tourism product is upscale, sophisticated, and perhaps a bit reserved. Perfect for relaxation or romantic getaways. A perfect setting for a wedding or a wedding planning class!
