Life in Bridgetown, Barbados

About Bridgetown

On the coast next to the turquoise sea, Bridgetown offers the only urban experience on the small, Caribbean island. Most Barbadians live in the capital city and are known for their welcoming, courteous, and religious nature. You'll pick up Barbadian English and Bajan, a dialect reflecting the fusion of English and African cultures in Barbados. They take a mellow approach to life, opting for lax schedules and plenty of time for liming (hanging out)—including snorkeling, road tennis, or cricket.
