BARBADOS WINDSURFING HOLIDAYS
Windsurf Holidays To Barbados
The island of Barbados, in the Caribbean, is a great windsurfing destination for intermediate to advanced windsurfers travellling with their partner of family. The main windsurfing zone is around Silver Sands on the east coast of Barbados, where you will find stunning white sand beaches and waves.
Planet Windsurf offers a luxury beach resort right next to the windsurf beach, or some large beautifully appointed apartments nearby. Both options are great value for money.
Also, it may be a good idea to take your own windsurf equipment to this location as equipment at the local centres is very limited.

What our clients say
"Barbados is awesome and the holiday I booked with Planet completely rocked. The windsurfing was amazing and the people in Barbados are really friendly."
The spot boasts some great wave riding on the reef, around 250 metres offshore and 1-2 metres deep. The slow breaking waves make it ideal for wave sailing novices. However, the spot is usually unsuitable for beginners as water starts are a necessity.
The Wind And Weather On Barbados
The wind varies between a constant cross-offshore or cross-onshore trade wind, which usually levels off between 12 and 20 knots. The best wind period is between December and March. Silversands is one of the best wave spots.
There are an abundance of jet ski companies, dive schools and paragliding businesses on the island. A variety of resorts also offer banana boat rides and general watersports. Barbados is a small island, therefore, renting a car is advisable. In fact, you can drive from one end of the island to the other in 1 hr 30 minutes. Driving your hire car is an excellent way to see all the islands attractions, such as the monkey sanctuary in the north, and all its beautiful beaches and surf breaks.
Nightlife On Barbados
Barbados has a great nightlife with a true Caribbean feel. The fish BBQ at Oistins is exceptionally good. Here you will be treated to the freshest fish cooked to order in front of you, accompanied by local foods, such as breadfruit, plantains, and a wedge of delicious macaroni pie.
St Lawrence Gap (The Gap) has a variety of bars and restaurants hosting local live music. Just look out for the posters that spring up around town with the place and date.
