Barbados for kids

Mark's verdict:

The all-inclusive rates and activities at Almond Beach Village make it a great choice – before you’ve even set foot on the sandy beach. Barbados oozes family appeal. There are daily, non-stop flights, short transfers and some exciting island escapades. Don’t miss the train ride into Harrisons Caves, surfing on the east coast or ziplining over Jack-in-the-Box Gully.
