Barbados is the easternmost Caribbean island and, as such, is a favorite with cruise lines. The island is extremely interesting and should be included in any Caribbean itinerary for at least the following reasons:
1. The capital city, Bridgetown, is very near the cruise ship docks and should be explored, preferably by foot.
2. The section of Barbados known as Bathsheba has one of the most interesting beaches on the island. It is east-facing and has rough, sometimes dangerous surf.
3. The Andromeda Gardens of Barbados are one of the island’s most popular attractions.
