It's maximum relaxation at Maxwell Beach

There's no rule to say you can't leave your phone on airplane mode even after you've landed, and with a Maxwell Beach vacation rental, all you're going to want it for is selfies anyway. With its white sand beach and warm blue waters, this little corner of the Caribbean is all about slowing things right down. And the people on Barbados are almost as welcoming as the beach itself. One of the island's most popular traditions is the weekly Friday night Oistins fish fry, and your Maxwell Beach vacation rental puts it right on your doorstep.

Turn out for Friday night frolics down by the beach

With a Maxwell Beach vacation rental, there's one place you're likely to be spending the vast majority of your time. Lounge on the sand, swim in the warm sea, or ramp it up a level with jet skis, sailing, or banana boat rides. You could have a picnic on the beach, or play a bit of volleyball if you're feeling particularly energetic. One local activity that you absolutely can't miss out on is the Friday night fish fry in the local village of Oistins, where locals and vacationers alike dress up and turn out for a big beach party.

Bridge(town) the (Saint Lawrence) Gap with some excursions

If you can tear yourself away from those warm sands, a Maxwell Beach vacation rental puts you in a top spot for excursions into the wider area. Saint Lawrence Gap is the main local hotspot—a 1.5 km strip of beachfront brilliance, with bars, restaurants, and shops. And Bridgetown, the capital of Barbados, is just a 20-minute drive away. This colorful city is full of attractions, including the Barbados Museum and the Barbados National Heroes Gallery. You can even learn how they make the island's signature drink with a tour round the Mount Gay Rum Distillery.

They don't sell a lot of fur coats in Barbados

Though there are wet and dry seasons, it's hot all year round in this corner of Paradise. Fortunately the winds coming in off the ocean keep the air moving around a bit, but you'll want to take special care with the sunscreen. The climate in Maxwell Beach is pretty tropical, with the wet season rocking up generally between June and December. January to April is the busiest time on Barbados, since it tends to be the driest and coolest period, while September and October are good months to get cheap rates, but you might find some stuff is shut.

Conan the Barbadian would have been a really nice guy

Though it's pretty much synonymous with the idyllic Caribbean, Barbados is actually in the Atlantic Ocean. Much of the island is surrounded by coral reefs, and it's well known for its sea turtles. The southern coast of Barbados is legendary for its sandy beaches and warm seas, and that's before you even get an eyeful of those gorgeous Bajan sunsets. Maxwell Beach is in Christ Church Parish, home to Barbados's last surviving mangrove swamp in the form of the Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary. This important wildlife habitat forms a staging post for migratory birds, and limited areas are open to the public.
