Barbados Directions fits neatly in your pocket and won't weigh you down on a visit to this dazzling island. The guide provides the perfect partner on a visit to Barbados, brimming with ideas for making the most of your time. In the opening "Ideas" section, 28 full-colour spreads cover a wide range of attractions from hidden beaches and outdoor activities to indulgent cocktails and remote sunset look-outs. The "Places" section of the guide gives complete coverage of each area of the island, with opinionated listings picking out the best museums, restaurants, bars, beaches, rum shops, wildlife and craft shops. Throughout the "Places" section there are specially commissioned photos illustrating the listings and maps pin-pointing their location. The entire text of the guide is digitally stored on an e-book CD included with the book. The CD can be read by PCs, Macs and all hand-held devices and contains weblinks to hundreds of sites, from hotels to local tour organisers.
