in Beautiful Barbados
Barbados, the most easterly island in the Caribbean island chain, is an independent island nation within the British Commonwealth. and the capital is Bridgetown, located in the parish of St Michael.
The population of Barbados is approximately 280,000 people - a diverse melting pot of people, the majority of whom are of African descent but also people who are of mixed race, Caucasian or European descent, East Indian, Oriental and Middle Eastern. Barbadians are renowned for being very friendly, and with tourism being a major contributor to the economy, it's obvious that the people of Barbados are this island's best kept asset.
The terrain is relatively flat in comparison to other Caribbean islands and because Barbados is nested just north of the equator, the climate is considered to be moderately tropical and temperatures typically range from between 80-86 degrees Fahrenheit (27-30 degrees Celsius) and 70 - 76% humidity for most of the year.
The water in Barbados is very safe to drink as it filtered naturally through coral limestone rock. In fact, over 85% of Barbados is made up of coral limestone, meaning the water of Barbados is of a very high quality.
Swimming in Barbados is safe on both the west and south coasts, however we recommend you exercise caution swimming on the south east, east and north coasts, due to the unpredictable nature of the currents of the Atlantic Ocean.
The Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre (LESC) formerly known as Sherbourne Conference Centre is the largest stand-alone conference facility on the picturesque island of Barbados. Established in August 1994, this meeting venue quickly became the premier conference venue in the Caribbean and has been duly rewarded over the years for its quality service and versatile facilities.
