Other than the festive season in Barbados (take a peek our winter getaways), November is one of our favourite times of the year as we celebrate Independence Day and a plethora of fun activities. If you love the water, November offers the Barbados Open Water Festival and the Live Like Zander Junior PRO WSL (World Surf League) & Thomo QS 1000 WSL.
The Barbados Open Water Festival
This annual event and draws locals and visitors alike from all countries to take part in this fun, five-day competition. Check out last year’s blog where we interviewed veteran competitor Amanda Garcia – Property Manager of luxury villa Crystal Springs. This year, participants can take part in practice swims, optional dinners, and four races. If you’re staying on the South Coast, Sapphire Beach condominiums are close to the action and lots of fine dining and entertainment options. We highly recommend checking out the nightlife in “The Gap” as well.
Dates: 6th Nov 2019 – 9th November 2019 | Location: St. Michael
World Surf League Live Like Zander Jr Pro and the WSL (World Surf League) Thomo QS 1000
This event is very near and dear to our hearts as it’s held in honour of Zander Venezia and Bill Thomson. The World Surf League (WSL) Junior is in loving memory of Zander while the homo 2019 QS 1000 in loving memory of Bill. Held at the famous Soup Bowl in Bathsheba, the event is always exciting and, a great opportunity to rub shoulders with the local Barbados community.
