Barbados is truly a millennial setting. This island is notorious for its sun-kissed beaches (many of which are recognized as the most beautiful beaches in the world), lush landscapes and perfect year-round climate of about 23 degrees Celsius (73 degrees Fahrenheit). The Bajan people are welcoming, warm and friendly. This tiny jewel of an island is only 21 miles in length and 14 miles in width, which makes it easy to explore. It’s packed with fun things to do and see.
Barbados is a country of British colonial heritage. British influence is still quite apparent. It was only in recent history (1966) that Barbados became an independent state and commonwealth realm within the British monarch. It’s important to note that Bajans drive on the left side of the road. If you plan to rent a car, you will need to familiarize yourself with the rules of the road prior to arriving to maximize safety.
Have you ever wanted to swim with turtles? Barbados is host to four species of nesting turtles with many opportunities to interact with them. Have you ever had a flying fish sandwich? A trip to Oistins Fish Fry won’t disappoint! The adventurous may want to scuba dive or try their hand at deep-sea or spear fishing. Others may enjoy taking in the beauty of God’s creation aboard a catamaran or at Harrison’s cave, which boasts the purest, cleanest water in the world. Barbados is also host to multiple botanical gardens and world-class shopping.
Services this year will be held at the beautiful Accra Beach Hotel & Spa in the province of Christ Church. This hotel is centrally located within walking distance of dozens of restaurants and activities. Located on the lively south coast, Accra is a mere three miles from Bridgetown and seven miles from the airport.
The Accra Beach Hotel & Spa has just completed a $1.5 million refurbishment. This elegant resort is situated on one of the island’s most spectacular beaches on the Caribbean Sea. Accra Beach Hotel & Spa evokes the very essence of Caribbean charm.
This hotel is not all-inclusive, which makes it much easier for those transferring to this Feast site to spend time with the lovely Bajan brethren. Brethren staying at the Accra will find a variety of rooms available starting at the low price of $140/night for double occupancy (all tax and fees included). Children under 17 years of age are free. There are three restaurants on property and dozens of other options within walking distance.
Celebrating God’s Feast of Tabernacles in beautiful Barbados promises to be an amazing experience that will not soon be forgotten!
