Barbados shopping lives up to its billing as one of the Caribbean's duty-free havens, so don't miss out on some of the great deals the island has to offer. Luxury goods like china, leather, jewelry, perfume, and crystal are available in Barbados for up to 40% less than you would pay at home. For the widest variety, do your duty-free Barbados shopping in Bridgetown. Broad Street is the place savvy shoppers usually hit first - with several malls and countless boutiques you're sure to find something to make the trip worthwhile. Look for the West Coast Mall for duty-free buys in the Holetown area. The Grantley Adams International Airport is another great spot to do your Barbados shopping; shops set up near the departure lounges offer fantastic discounts and can kill time while you're waiting for your flight.
Barbados shopping isn't all about duty-free. Unique local handicrafts can also be purchased in shops around Barbados, especially in Bridgetown and the south coast parish of Christ Church. For a wide selection of Barbadian-made goods like weaving, batiks, and jewelry, cruise along Harbour Road near Bridgetown until you reach Pelican Craft Centre. The Best of Barbados sells Barbadian-designed crafts in Christ Church and six other locations. Finally, no authentic Barbados shopping experience would be complete without a stop at one of two Chattel House Villages (in Holetown or St. Lawrence Gap), bright Caribbean-style shops filled with local fashions and souvenirs.
