Embark on a dream holiday that combines both city sight seeing in action packed New York and idyllic beach time bliss on the shores of Barbados. Our New York and Barbados multi-centre holiday perfectly combines the buzz of a city break with a relaxed beach holiday.
One of the globe’s most famous cities, New York is the backdrop of many much loved films and television series. Filled with so many iconic landmarks, everyone must visit New York at least once in their life. As you explore the city, you’ll spot many sights and scenes from your favourite blockbuster hits. Walk through the blissful grounds of Central Park, hop on a tour boat to see the Statue of Liberty up close and wander across the renowned Brooklyn Bridge.
In contrast to the hectic pace of New York, you’ll fly to Barbados with direct flights taking just four and a half hours. After a busy trip spent exploring the sights of New York, where better to unwind than on the dreamy beaches of Barbados? With a carefree and relaxed vibe, the Caribbean island is the perfect place to chill out.
Take a scenic stroll on the island’s white sand beaches, frolic in the beautiful blue waters and sample the flavoursome Caribbean fare. The locals are very passionate about their cuisine and one place to indulge in some of the country’s best is at Oistin’s Fish Fry. Here you can enjoy well seasoned fresh catch of the day surrounded by visitors and locals alike in a warm, welcoming atmosphere.

Start your Journey
New York is known as the city that never sleeps, which is perfect as there’s so much to see and do both day and night.
Iconic, busy and fast paced, a trip to this world renowned city is action packed, exciting and unforgettable. The list of things to see and do is seemingly endless. For a first time visitor, admiring the flashing neon lights of the Times Square is a must, as is a trip to the huge sparkling billboards of Broadway.
A spot featured in many films and television series, take a retreat from the bright lights to the city’s leafy oasis, Central Park. Here you can admire the verdant trees, the tranquil ponds and the local wildlife.
A trip to the Big Apple wouldn’t be complete without taking a boat trip to the Statue of Liberty, the iconic lady that dominates the New York skyline. You’ll also have the chance to visit Ellis Island, where you’ll learn all about the city’s multicultural past.
For a break from the busy sightseeing of New York, where better to relax than the paradise Caribbean island of Barbados? On arrival, you’ll be welcomed by the warm and friendly locals and you’ll instantly feel comfortable and at home.
Unwind on the pale sand beaches with a rum punch cocktail or cool down from the hot Bajan sun with a dip in the crystalline waters.
If you’re keen to explore, there’s plenty more to do than relax. Immerse yourself in the local lifestyle and play a game of cricket on the beach, or head to one of Barbados rum shops. There you can sample different types of rums and have a chat and a game of dominos with locals.
Sampling authentic Bajan cuisine is a must, and you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to excellent restaurants, food stalls and casual eateries.
