The geography of Barbados, as shown on this Barbados map, is distinct amongst the Caribbean nations. While most of its West Indian island neighbors form part of the Lesser Antilles, Barbados lies 100 miles east of this chain and has a different geological makeup. The island is 21 miles (34 km) long, 14 miles (23 km) wide, and relatively flat - Barbados' highest point, Mount Hillaby, peaks at only 1116 ft (340 m). Beautiful rolling hills have prompted many to nickname the country's northern region 'Scotland', so be sure to grab a Barbados map and spend a day trekking through the area.
On this Barbados map, trace a line down the west coast from Speightstown to Oistins and you cross where fully 85 percent of Barbadians live; while densely populated, the island's nearly 300,000 inhabitants are disproportionately centred in the urban and tourist regions of the west, where pink and white sand beaches dot the shoreline.
