Day 1 - Play in the East:
Hire a car from GL Rentals or Direct Rentals and head out early. I mean early early. Drive to the Barclays Park on East Coast Road and relax and take in the beautiful sunrise. This is something nice to do with your significant other. Don't forget to take a blanket, some sandwiches and a couple drinks for the full picnic experience.

There are a few places of interest to visit in the East. First, you can visit St. Nicholas Abbey and tour this superbly refurbished Jacobean mansion and plantation ground, sample the rum and learn about heritage. Also, visit the Springvale Eco Heritage Museum. Considered a folk museum, you can learn about the history of Barbadian culture. If there is time, a trip to the Andromeda Gardens should definitely be on the list. This tropical garden located on 6 acres of land is a gem to behold.

If surfing is your style, head down to the Soup Bowl and catch a few waves. If not, simply relax on the
shore. Across the road from the beach, you can find a few restaurants serving Bajan dishes, so make sure to grab a bite to eat.
