by mmjh

We are travelling to the Barbados in early December for 1 week. Does anybody know whether the race track will be running at that time. Also can you suggest some good sea food restaurants and locals type restaurants in the area
Thanks

Restaurants near Bridgetown - Brown Sugar has a Bajan buffet. IMO it's just as good and cheaper for lunch. The Edgewater Inn also has a Sunday Brunch Bajan buffet. I've eatten at both and both were good. The Edgewater also has regular seafood.

Other seafood restaurants are
FISH POT Casual 439-2604
MEWS (THE) Elegant French, local seafood 432-1122
PISCES Elegant, International 435-6564
RUSTY PELICAN Casual Caribbean,Grill, 436-7778
SHAK SHAK (THE) Elegant ,Continental 435-1234

I haven't eaten at these restaurants.

http://www.barbados.org/horse_racing.htm says racing is year round, but we were there in December and it was not going on at that time - probably because it was Independance Day.

http://www.barbadosturfclub.com/racingdates.htm which is the Turf Club website says that on
December 6th, 2003 they will be running the Diamond International Youth Challenge Stakes and Trophy/ Fan Appreciation Day/Charity Raceday

Travel Tips for Bridgetown

Driving through town

by grandmaR

As we drove through town, I tried to get some pictures of the buildings in Bridgetown without a lot of success. I did get the Parliment building, but my pictures of the Careenage (photo 3 and 4) weren't a success when taken from a speeding car. And I was unable to get a picture of Nelson's statue. Two of the buildings in these pictures (photo 2 and photo 5) are ones that I can't identify.

Dive the Stavronikita

by MikeAtSea

This is a 365ft Greek freighter that was deliberately sunk to form an artificial reef, this wreck is now home to numerous fish and corals. The Stavronikita lies in 120ft of water with the stern at 100ft and the bow at 70ft.
The wreck is teeming with fish life - including creole wrasse, a huge barracuda and lots more.
I dived the wreck in easy conditions - though watch your depth since the sand is quiet deep.
Average depth on the dive was around 28 m or 80 feet. Dive gear - which is available for rent on the entire island

Bridgetown harbor area

"Customs gate"

Our visit to Barbados was on a cruise ship, which makes entry into the country very easy. Simply walk through the gate, no passport need at this point, only the cruise ship ID. Leaving the country is a tiny bit more complicated - you have to show a photo ID along with the ship ID.

"Shopping center"

Jusin front of the cruise ship dock was this showplace shopping center, the only problem was nothing was open

"Chamberlain Bridge"

The center of Bridgetown was clean and neat.

Bridgetown

by Hewer

I stayed in Barbados for a week in May 2005 and travelled into Bridgetown a couple of times. It's an easy city to navigate and there is plenty to like about it. There is some good shopping, the locals are friendly enough and there is plenty to see and do.

Bridgetown isn't a huge city, having a population of 100,000 out of 275,000 for the whole country. Originally the city got its name from the number of bridges that were built there in clonial times. I must have been doing something wrong because I only counted two(?). Anyway there are a lot of historical buildings and monuments in the city and a sense of th past is certainly there.

Watch out for sunburn though - there isn't a great deal of shade in the center of town. In my case I eventually just darted from shop to shop to escape ;-)

"The Real Deal"

Bridgetown is a neat contrast to the glitzy beachside luxuries found elsewhere in the country. Not that it's dingy or anything like that - it's just that in many of the coastal areas the touristy feeling looms large and it's good to get away from that. For some anyway.

I got a chance to watch some international cricket there too - the first day of a test match between West Indies and Pakistan. You can read more about that in my cricket travelogue on my Barbados page.
