As a tax-free destination for luxurious shopping and collectables, Barbados enjoys a rich history as a major trading center in the Western Hemisphere. Continuing that tradition today, its downtown offers an amazing array of duty-free shops, including designer clothing and jewelry outlets, food stores, perfume emporiums and so much more.
Browse Bajan-made souvenirs and vacation mementos at Pelican Village – home to some extremely talented artists and craftsmen – or shop for authentic island trinkets along the streets of St. Lawrence Gap and Bridgetown. Also located in Bridgetown is Dacosta’s Mall, where you’ll find stunning diamonds and designer wear amid a plethora of Caribbean rum and souvenir stalls that line the streets.
From there, head over to the southeast corner of the island and discover the 55,000 sq. ft. shopping hub that is Crane Village. Open to locals and visitors alike, this fast-growing island destination is becoming a popular spot to grab a bite to eat or enjoy an array of entertainment.
Also, within walking distance of The Club Barbados Resort & Spa, you’ll find the Limegrove Lifestyle Centre, where you can shop upscale brands such as Ralph Lauren, Bvlgari and Cartier.
