Barbados may be the home of some of the world’s most famous beaches, but the small island is also home to one of the world’s most fascinating collections of English iron cannons. This impressive set of armoury is referred to as the National Cannon Collection of Barbados and dates all the way back to the 17th and 18th Century when the British Military protected its island colonies.
Oistins Fish Fry is a must do activity for almost every visitor who comes to Barbados and is situated in the Oistins Bay Gardens, in Oistins town, on the south coast of Barbados. It is the most visited attraction on island appealing to both locals and visitor with equal intensity. So why is Oistins so popular? Its authenticity intrigues its patrons… distinctly Bajan they say. Several operators serve up menus of varied fish and other seafood in a very casual atmosphere and at an extremely affordable price point. Open every night of the week, it is, however, more patronised on Fridays and Saturday evenings. Regular patrons have their preferred vendors and tend to move between a few favourites. There are however plenty of options to choose from. Open grills and the welcoming aroma of fresh food permeates the air. Beer is the popular beverage, but other options are also available.
