Start your tropical trip off in cosmopolitan Barbados, mixing your time on the beach with soaking up the colonial past visiting restored plantation houses, rum distilleries and the historic capital of Bridgetown or in contrast, browse the designer shops and duty-free shopping centres along the west coast. Then hop across to St Lucia and be wowed by the stunning scenery, beautiful beaches and enjoy the Creole-influenced cuisine.
Full of beautiful beaches, UNESCO World Heritage, nightlife, and watersports, Barbados is a welcoming island with something for everyone.
Fly direct from London Gatwick (daily) into Barbados with Virgin Atlantic.
Upon arrival, settle into your surroundings and relax into the Caribbean way-of-life (rum punch recommended). Head to the beach to experience watersports galore, see some baby turtles hatching, swim with the turtles or simply bask in the sunshine. Barbados towns to come to life at night, with the main hub of nightlife in St Lawrence Gap on the south west coast. Here you can visit the famed Oistins Fish Fry, and dance the night away in one of the many bars.
Head to Barbados airport for your internal flight onto St Lucia.
If a week of R&R in Barbados wasn't enough, how about another week in paradise, but this time in St Lucia? The island is full of bays, waterfalls and, of course, beautiful beaches with views of the iconic Pitons.
Take a hike at sunset, experience a catamaran boat trip, or simply watch the sun go down with the sand in your toes and a cocktail in hand. Head into Castries, the capital city, and treat yourself to some duty-free shopping, learn more about the island's history, and see palm-lined Vigie Beach.
Make your way back to St Lucia airport and pick up your direct flight back (twice per week) to London Gatwick with Virgin Atlantic.
