Elevate your break by dipping a toe (quite literally) into Barbados’ most romantic natural wonders. What could be better than settling down on a gorgeous beach and spending the day sunbathing, snorkelling, or surfing, depending on your vibe. Carlisle Bay in southern Bridgetown is the perfect spot to splash around, with six different shipwrecks scattered throughout its waters, in which you can spot tropical fish, turtles and rock lobsters. For a different way to explore, opt for a clear kayak trip together – with see-through glass bottoms, these vessels make for a unique way to tour the wrecks and meet the sealife. You can also enjoy a romantic horse ride along the shore.

For another coastal treat, head to Paynes Bay on the west coast, about 20 minutes from Bridgetown, to go paddleboarding. The calm, crystal-clear waters of this pretty bay are ideal for for a laidback, easy board, and also boast a fantastic, creature-packed coral reef close to shore. You can then head out in the lively beachside town, which has a wealth of restaurants, perfect for enjoying a romantic dinner as the sun sets.

On the very north side is the Animal Flower Cave, the only accessible sea cave on the island, where you can swim in the crystal clear waters or chill out in its seafront restaurant.
