Of course, no vacation is complete without some kind of shopping! The weekend is customarily the best time to do your shopping, as more specials, giveaways and deals are on offer. Bridgetown is a must! “ Town”, as it is affectionately known, is the island’s chief commercial centre, has a wealth of monuments and historical buildings and was recently named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Many stores offer duty-free shopping, and there is a wonderful arts and crafts site - Pelican Village - that makes a great stop for affordable souvenirs, accents for home décor and authentic Bajan works.

Holetown and Speightstown also are great places to shop, providing duty-free shopping, as well as beautiful craft items from local artisans. Local arts and craft are a great way to capture the spirit of the island, great for gifts and are available island-wide. Take a look below at some of our featured stores.
