(excerpt) Offering powdery white beaches, crystal clear waters and gorgeous sunsets, Barbados is without a doubt one of the most romantic places on earth. It’s no wonder the island is so popular with honeymooners, and a growing number of people are choosing Barbados as a wedding destination too.
After a day of swimming in the crystal clear ocean and sunbathing on the sugary white beaches, end the day with sunset drinks and dinner overlooking the ocean. For a truly memorable experience, reserve a table at The Cliff Restaurant, located on the West Coast in the cliffs above St. James. Every table overlooks the Caribbean Ocean, and the whole restaurant is lit by flame torches, creating the ultimate romantic atmosphere.
