The island of Barbados is strategically located at the most easterly side of the Lesser Antilles. It's rather unique position augurs well in that it makes the island the first stop for those yachts crossing the Atlantic Ocean.
Barbados attracts thousands of tourists annually and as such, steps have been put in place over the years to cater to this demand. These steps have resulted in the development of specific areas that focus on improving the quality of life on the island which augurs well for both locals and tourists alike. One such development is seen in the area of marinas.
In addition to arriving on the island of Barbados via boat, you can also reach the likes of Port St. Charles marina by air as the distance between the marina and the Grantley Adams International Airport in the parish of Christ Church is not a long one. At the time of Barbados Pocket Guide's launch, another port by the name of Port Ferdinand was well underway in Six Mens, St. Peter.
When one marries the luring climate conditions of Barbados along with the ideal home away from home atmosphere on the island, it stands to reason why there's a demand for marinas on the island.
