Since securing independence from the U.K. in the 1960s, Barbados has reformed its economy and set its sights firmly on making tourism its number-one earner. It isn’t a hard sell. Barbados has a lower cost of living than many other Caribbean countries plus a dizzying collection of gold-standard beaches and a relaxed, fun-loving way of life.

The island’s well-established tourism industry means expats have access to good roads and transport, a plethora of top-notch restaurants and nightlife options, and supermarkets in which all the familiar brands are stocked alongside a range of exciting new local flavors.
