Destination guide

Arrr! 'Tis a pirate's life for me!

From the 16th to the 18th centuries, pirates ruled the seas around Barbados and the Caribbean. They sowed fear among the Spanish and British navies and formed uneasy alliances with the locals. Forget about those Johnny Depp movies – they barely tell half the story. These days, you'll barely find a trace of the pirates of old in Barbados, but who says you can't live a pirate's life while you're there? All it takes is finding beachfront Christ Church vacation rentals and chilling out on the sand while chugging rum. No looting required.

Things to do

If you want party central, you gotta get to The Gap

You can't say you know what it's like to party in Christ Church until you've seen it up close and personal at St. Lawrence Gap. The Gap knows no bounds comes to fun. Just show up there and do your thing, whether it's to eat local cuisine, dance away to calypso music or the latest party anthem, or sing your heart out at a karaoke bar. If you want this place to be part of your vacation, check out the Christ Church vacation rentals nearby.

Activities

Have swimsuit, will travel

One of the great things about beach holidays in Christ Church is that they don't have to be complicated. Just make sure you have your beach things, a strong sunscreen, and water protection for your camera phone so you can inspire envy with your Instagram posts. You can spend your entire holiday chillaxing at the beach with a rum cocktail. If you're feeling adventurous, you can go windsurfing or kitesurfing. In the evenings, you can party at a nightclub in St. Lawrence Gap or mingle with other vacationers at Friday night fish fry socials at Oistins.

Weather

No hurricanes here, TYVM

Christ Church enjoys a tropical monsoon climate with only 2 seasons: wet and dry. The wet season descends upon Barbados in June and runs until November. Come December, the rainfall lets up and the island gets more sunshiny days until May. One of the great things about Barbados is it's just outside the Caribbean hurricane strike zone, so high winds rarely cross the island during the stormy season. But if you're one of those people who find rough seas enchanting to watch, you can score great deals with Christ Church vacation rentals during the wet season.

Natural features

No drama, no worries

Unlike other Caribbean islands, Barbados doesn't really have dramatic landscapes. It has a highlands area, unsurprisingly called the Scotland District. These highlands are where you'll find Mount Hillaby, Barbados' highest point. Christ Church is in the southern lowlands area, in the island's southwest corner and separated from the highlands by the steep Christ Church Ridge. Very little of Barbados' original flora remains, having been largely replaced by sugarcanes. But you'll still find native animals, including the Barbados green monkey and the Barbados mongoose.
