Barbados invites the visitor to experience the richness of its history, culture, natural beauty, economy and sport through a journey from the discovery of a small island, one of the Lesser Antilles Windward Islands, to its independence at the end of 1966. Situated between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, the island lives from sugar production, which is its main source of export, and is also the seat of important companies. A journey through its exhibition reveals the richness and sophistication of its natural enchantment. The waters of the Atlantic violently carve the eastern coast of Barbados. creating caves, arches and sheer cliffs that delicately house tiny peoples. A coastline full of coral reefs, blue holes and vibrant flora and fauna, full of colour and variety. Remains of sunken ships populate the seabed. The western coast is gently washed by the waters of the Caribbean, giving rise to beautiful beaches of white and pink sand that caress the warm, crystal clear waters. Many languages, religions and ethnic groups coexist harmoniously. The carnival, lived with intensity and passion, floods Barbados with colour and hubbub.
