If you are on a budget and would love to see the island, then the bus is the way to go. All you have to do is pick a destination (mostly from the city) and ride the bus to the end. You will, I am sure, see how love the island is.

One the most entertaining and interesting bus rides for me was to take the bus from Oistins to Speightstown, better known to the locals as the By-Pass Bus. It starts in the lovely fishing village of Oistins in the south of the island. It then hugs the scenic south coast enabling you to see some of the most breathtaking beach vistas around. At the Garrison the bus cuts inland and meanders its way through some of the most expensive old neighborhoods. Village life can be seen at many locations like Tweedside Road in Carrington Village, Hindsbury Road, Bankhall Main Road, and Black Road.

From Black Roca the bus rides the West Coast of the island. This coast is a heavy tourist area with many hotels, resorts and condos. With the likes of Sandy Lane, Porters, and Port St. Charles, you are sure to find some of the most expensive tourist accommodation in Barbados. In between you will find other fishing villages like Paynes bay, Holetown, and in the end Speightstown.

This bus ride has a lot to see. But there are many more you can seek out. The Barbados Transport Board now gives scenic tours like the Sunday Scenic Tour and the New Island Tour Service. So if you are on the island of Barbados, make sure you take a bus ride somewhere.

Post Boxes, where are they located, you wonder? They seem to be strategically place throughout the island. But to be honest I can’t remember having ever used one. I was just comfortable taking my mail to the Post Office.
