How To Travel To Barbados

North AmericaBarbadosHow To Travel To Barbados

By air

Sir Grantley Adams International Airport (IATA: BGI) is a major international airport for the size of Barbados, offering dozens of flights in high season from the UK and Canada, as well as the US. British Airways and Virgin Atlantic have numerous flights to Barbados, while American Airlines is the dominant carrier from the US (Dallas, Miami and New York). Air Canada and Westjet offer flights from Canada. The airport is located 13 km (8 mi) east of Bridgetown. Buses and minibuses leave from a stop opposite the airport and travel up the coast to Bridgetown, Holetown and Speightstown for B$2 per person, but a taxi is the most convenient way to get to your hotel on arrival.

With the boat

Many cruise ships dock at Bridgetown’s deep-water port, which was recently expanded to accommodate even more ships. The terminal is served by an army of taxis, as well as shuttle buses to/from downtown Bridgetown for B$2 per person.

Private moorings are available around the island. Please note that dropping anchor in the coral reefs carries heavy penalties.
