a bit of general advice

« on: December 27 2006 14:12:00 »

hey everyone

i'm comign to barbados last wk of jan / first wk of feb and can't wait to get out of cold dark england1!!

i'm coming with my girlfriend, we've got to keep things fairly cheap, and i'm dying to surf, but i want to make sure she's happy with a decent beach, place to stay and some fun stuff to do at night (come to think of it i want some fun stuff at night too!!!)

so all in all would be cool to get a bit of advice, maybe places to stay, places to go, somewhere to stay (happy to mix this up and move around cos i'd love to see a bit of the Island..) or if anyone has  a cheap hint on transport...

would be cool to mix things up, bit of fun stuff, some quite stuff, that kind of thing

have a good new year, bring on 07., hopefully hear from someone..........

West coast full of Rich people mainly older, south coast Between Bridgetown and Oistins a bit more nornmal with younger people bars and cheaper restaurants beaches good at both and clear sea. East coast more like cornwall windy and rougher seas .Soup bowl good surfing if your good. much quieter that side. Couple of bar restaurants. Car isnt that cheap to hire but worth it to get about. Government buses OK, private ones -yellow ok on main routes -white ones crazy drivers. Travel at ok times then not Jam packed.
