Family Photo
So, you’re planning a
Barbados vacation with the family? We’re confident you’ll have an unforgettable holiday. But we also know what it’s like trying to coordinate activities that the whole family will enjoy. Excursions that are fun-filled and kid-friendly, but also stimulating and interesting for the adults. Is that too much to ask for? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. You’ll be spoiled for choice with things to do in Barbados. So to get you started, here are six Barbados family activities handpicked by the Blue Sky Luxury Concierge Team.

Rasals Water Park

Barbados water sports

For beach lovers, there’s a lot more on offer than sandcastles and sun loungers. For action-packed fun, Rascals Water Park has an inflatable obstacle course – a floating playground with slides, jumps, and more. Carlisle Bay is a great place to try paddle boarding and kayaking. Or check out Freights Bay for surf lessons – the easy-going long waves are great for beginners and kids. Why not join a snorkel tour or learn to scuba dive at one of the many dive shops on the island? Our Blue Sky Luxury Concierge Services can recommend and book the best Barbados water sports activities for you and your family. 

Harrison's Cave

Harrison’s Cave

Grab your hard hats and head underground for one of the island’s most spectacular natural features, and a top Barbados family-friendly activity. The interactive tour (aboard an open tram, which the kids will love!) takes you deep into the crystalised limestone cave system that stretches over two kilometers. Discover impressive stalactite and stalagmite formations, flowing streams, deep pools, and even an underground waterfall. Harrison’s Cave is a fun and educational experience, and (here’s an insider tip!) it’s a great activity for those rare rainy days in paradise. 

Seaduced Catamaran

Catamaran Cruise

You’re in the Caribbean! So a day on the water is a must and it’s one of our top recommendations for things to do in Barbados. There are several companies offering catamaran day cruises on a join-in or private basis. Most offer two snorkel stops with the chance to swim with turtles and explore a shipwreck, followed by a delicious Bajan buffet lunch and a cruise along the iconic Barbados west coast. Just picture yourself sipping on a rum punch, under sail, looking out at the stunning turquoise waters. The Blue Sky Luxury Concierge Services can recommend the best cruise for your family, and make all the arrangements. 

St. Nicholas Abbey Train

St Nicholas Abbey

A national treasure with something for the whole family. The kids will love the ride on the historic steam train that climbs to Cherry Tree Hill with stunning views over the east coast. This is followed by a tour of the great house, rum distillery and of course a rum tasting session for the adults. The estate grounds are expansive and beautiful – lots of room for little ones to explore and run around, and there’s a lovely café serving drinks and snacks. Overall St Nicholas Abbey offers a wonderful excursion that ticks all the boxes for a memorable day out for your Barbados vacation

Animal Flower Cave

Animal flower cave

Another ‘must do’ for Barbados family activities is a visit to this unique natural feature on the wild and rugged north east coast of the island. Animal Flower Cave is named after the sea anemone ‘animal flowers’ that live in the natural pools, descend the rock staircase into this stunning seaside cave, open to the crashing Atlantic waves on one side. Bring your swimsuit and have a paddle in the beautiful natural pool inside the cave. Be sure to have lunch at the breathtaking ocean-facing restaurant when you return to the ground level. There’s a small playground for children, often with inquisitive goats running around! 

Welchman Hall Gully

Welchman Hall Gully

Follow the nature trail deep into this beautiful natural gully which was formed by a collapsed cave system in the centre of Barbados. You can take a guided tour with one of the knowledgeable tour guides, or just enjoy a self-guided visit  The path is paved and wheelchair / stroller accessible, so Welchman Hall Gully is a great family-friendly excursion particularly for small children. Our tip is to pack a picnic and take your time. One added bonus is to visit when the monkeys are being fed (usually between 10.30 am and noon). 

This is just a flavour of the many things to do in Barbados. Our Blue Sky Luxury Concierge Team is ready to make your Barbados vacation as special as possible with carefully selected activities to match the interests of your family. Priceless memories await!

At Blue Sky Luxury, we value our property inspections, our detailed and consistent twice annually inspections, which are crucial to protecting our valued tenants and homeowner’s investments, as well as the continuous reinforcement of our ‘Blue Standards’.

As Barbados’ leading property management company – Blue Sky Luxury holds a vested interest throughout our managed properties. But more importantly, we help our tenants and homeowners, breathe a sigh of relief, knowing that we are truly safeguarding their interest.

In our world of Property Management, inspections from time immortal, are our best line of defense against property damage, and oftentimes, personal injury, as we focus on the health, safety, and wellness of our tenants and homeowners.  As you can appreciate, whether it is due to tenants’ misuse of a property or maintenance issues that go unchecked, property damage can lead to hefty repair bills – especially when it goes unnoticed for long periods of time.

As our mission, we prefer to be proactive, rather than reactive. Over time, you perhaps heard of many nightmare scenarios of tenants turning beautiful homes into anything from brothels to drug labs to party houses.

While we appreciate that not every tenant can be painted with the same brush, we are committed to ensuring that all our tenants are held to the ‘Blue Standard’, so that our homeowners’ investments remain protected.

In this topic, we will examine the below listed key areas.

What is a Property Inspection?

A Property Inspection is a detailed and systematic visual inspection of the property, its structures, design, and fixtures that will provide a transparent understanding of the property’s ‘vital signs’ and condition as observed on the inspection date.

The Value of a Property Inspection

Like most homeowners, the purchase of standalone homes, villas, or condominiums, or even the most luxurious multi-million dollar homes, purchasers have very little to no prior knowledge of, or expertise in or property management.

Property management companies, such as Blue Sky Luxury, specializes in property management professionals, who have the knowledge, skills, and experience to detect costly problems. For example, most of the value of residential land comes from the house. To explain further, a house with one or more severe structural, electrical, or even plumbing issues can cost tens of thousands of dollars or even more. Consequently, scheduled property inspections are necessary in ensuring your investment remains in pristine condition. Property inspections are an added value mechanism, every homeowner with a vested interest in his or her property should maintain. After our annual inspection, as a homeowner, you will have a much clearer understanding of your property’s condition; highlighting the necessary maintenance and preventative maintenance measures you need to undertake.

There’s Even More Added Value…

The Inspection, Key Areas of our Focus

Depending on the age, size of the property, and its general layout, inspections can generally be lengthy, ranging anywhere between 2 and 6 hours, in terms of navigating the property. The property manager will examine the property and its structures, to include, but is not limited to:

Our Final Word – The Value in conclusion!

Property inspections are essential if our tenants and homeowner rights are to be protected while ensuring that our homeowners get maximum returns on their investment. The property management team at Blue Sky Luxury is committed and will continue to go the extra mile, to ensure that our wide-ranging portfolio of properties is magnificently maintained, such is vital to the longevity of the property.

Here, we have highlighted the value and equally so, the importance of property inspections and their importance to the tenant and our homeowners. As a tenant or a homeowner, you don’t have to worry, we have your safety and comfort, as our top priority.

On May 8th, 2021 Barbados will bring into effect a new protocol that allows persons who have been vaccinated free movement in a shorter time than before. What does this mean for visitors? You arrive in Barbados, have your test done, have breakfast, have a dip in the pool, (at your private vacation villa) receive your negative COVID 19 results, and voila, you’re at one of our Top 5 recommended restaurants with hardly any time spent under restrictive movement. Before you get to roaming the Barbados countryside, here are the full details for the new Barbados Travel Protocols for fully vaccinated persons.

What’s a fully vaccinated person?

A fully vaccinated person has been classified by the Barbados Government as having received an approved vaccine in a two-dose regime and has received both doses plus 14 days, or a one-dose regime, one dose plus 14 days. Your vaccination status will be fact-checked by the Barbados Government and persons who do not meet the criteria will fall under the travel protocol for unvaccinated persons. That’s not a terrible thing, it may be a slightly longer wait but the safety of Barbadians and visitors alike has always paramount. However, if you are looking forward to the roaming of said countryside, being fully vaccinated certainly fast tracks you there… ahem, as do our Concierge Can team

How it Works – The New Protocol for Fully Vaccinated Persons

1. Have your vaccination single or double completed + 14 days. Ensure you receive certification from the medical fraternity.

2. Bring to Barbados your PCR test that is negative within the last 72 hours. Ensure you have copies of your certified negative results.

3. Within 24 hours of arrival in Barbados, you will take a rapid test or a classic PCR test. After this, you will have limited movements. (Government has put new measures into place to handle high volumes)

4. Receive negative results of your COVID 19 test and restaurants and roaming will be open to you asap.

How Can we at Blue Sky Luxury Help?

Protocols are constantly changing; Barbados has been quite forward-thinking in ways to operate safely while placing the value of lives at the forefront. Our Concierge Can team can help you:

· Secure your PCR appointment with an approved medical practitioner 

· Arrange for the medical practitioner to test you privately at your villa
