“Coucou” is one of the most favorite dishes, it is a pudding of okra and corn. Other traditional dishes are “The flying fish” and “Pepperpot”, which is some kind of pork stew. An irresistible dessert you can taste is the coconut pane. We can suggest locals like “Waterfront Café” or “The Cliff”, but there are many others you can try.
Other interesting activities for tourists are the local festivals. The biggest festival, Holetown, takes place in February, and they organize street fairs, musical events and beauty contests. We also recommend music festivals, such as “Celtic and Gospelfest” and “Cropover”, which are celebrated in May and July.

Being an important historic center, the island of Barbados is one of the oldest cities in the Caribbean.

In terms of geology, it is actually unique, because it is the product of two unified land masses.
