This sovereign island country in the Lesser Antilles, in the Americas is 34 kilometres (21 miles) long and up to 23 km (14 mi) wide.
The country is situated in the western area of the North Atlantic and 100 km (62 mi) east of the Windward Islands and the Caribbean Sea; therein, it is about 168 km (104 mi) east of the islands of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and 400 km (250 mi) north-east of Trinidad and Tobago. Barbados is outside of the principal Atlantic hurricane belt. Its capital is Bridgetown.
This is a coral island, pushed out of sea by volcanic activity in a far away time. On the West Coast, coral shore beaches of fine white sand stretch along a blue-green sea.
Coral reefs fringe the shoreline to provide excellent snorkeling and Scuba Diving. Along the East Coast a lively surf is blown briskly by the strong and constant trade winds and the waves pound against a rocky shore. The constant breeze of the trade winds give Barbados a mild and pleasant tropical climate.
