Barbados is a coral island, pushed out of sea by volcanic activity. On the West Coast of Barbados, coral shore beaches of fine white sand stretch along a blue-green sea. Coral reefs follow the Barbados shoreline to provide excellent snorkeling and Scuba Diving. Along the East Coast is a lively surf from the strong and constant trade winds and the waves pound against a rocky shore. The constant breeze of the trade winds give Barbados a mild and pleasant tropical climate.

Within the Barbados coral core there is a vast array of caves and underground lakes which provide an excellent supply of drinking water that is amongst the purest in the world. Barbados is unique, being actually two land masses that merged together over the years.
