St. Nicholas Abbey is currently ranked 2 out of 20 in the Best Caribbean Attraction category, whilst in the Best Restaurant in the Caribbean, The Cliff Restaurant sits at number 13 out of 20 on the leader-board. Coming in at position 4 out of 20 is the Green Monkey at Sandy Lane for the Best Caribbean Golf Course award and in the final category; Best Caribbean Dive Site, Carlisle Bay ranks 4th behind Belize, Bonaire and Honduras.

These nominations reflect the high quality of our tourism product and indicate the overall satisfaction of visitors who explore our island. As the Barbados Tourism Product Authority (BTPA) seeks to maintain our high standard, we must commend those responsible for the nominated sites for understanding the importance of our tourism industry, and showcasing Barbados at its best.

Griffith has called upon the citizens of Barbados to vote daily to ensure Barbados cops all its categories.

Griffith mentioned, “This is an excellent opportunity for the island to rally together and to continue to show the world what Barbados has to offer.”
