Barbados
Port Rating: 5+ out of 5+
We always go to the Boatyard! It is our favorite place in Barbados and we look forward to going there each time. I hope they never change it! It is perfect in my eyes.

Aruba is a great place for beach lovers. We discovered years ago that the best thing to do is hop on a bus and find a beach. The last two times there we went to Arusha beach which is close to the California Lighthouse. We had it practically to ourselves although the surf was rough this time.

We walked to "town" and spent a few hours at the local Phillipsburg beach. After a couple of hours it got crowded but by that time we were ready to walk back. The exercise did us good!

Grande Anse is the only beach we go to here and we are getting a little tired of it. The beach umbrella rental people are downright rude. They were asking $20 for ragged umbrellas and broken-down chairs. It's too bad. The beach is nice. The boat taxis are also getting higher every year. I think next year we will stay on-board.

We have started to go to Sapphire Beach when we are here in St. Thomas. It is absolutely gorgeous! The water was fairly calm and the sand was nice and clean.

This is a pretty port but we have been here about 12 times and still haven't found a decent beach. Last time we went to the Aquarium Beach which was just so-so. This will be another "stay on the ship" port for us.

We took a ship's tour here which was pretty good. It was an all day tour up to the rain forest, to Soufriere for a nice Caribbean lunch at an old mill and then a catamaran stop for a few minutes at a beach. Pretty good tour, kind of expensive but nice.
