The Real Barbados recently caught up with Eric Lloyd after his trip to Bim and he was kind enough to write a brief synopsis of his time spent down in paradise.   Eric is originally from Michigan but currently resides in Boston MA.   One of the things he was looking to do was get in some SUP time (Stand Up Paddle).   Barbados is home to some of the best SUP spots in the Caribbean as well as some of the most beautiful beaches and coolest bars.   Below is Eric’s first hand account, enjoy!

“I took up residency at the Moonraker this past December on the recommendation from my friends at The Real Barbados.  Situated on the south end of the island, the Moonraker was exactly what I was looking for.  The south end of Barbados seemed to be a lot less touristy than the rest of the island, and gave me a nice sampling of the Bajan culture.

The Moonraker had two beaches to choose from.  One is super secluded, and you often have it all to yourself, the other was a 3 minute walk, but much larger (both are beautiful). Also situated on the property is the Surfer’s Bay Bar.  Always a cold Banks beer and some quality meals for dinner. The staff at the Moonraker was very accommodating and were always willing to take you into town, or point you in the right direction. Many thanks specifically to Antone for all his hospitality.
The Real Barbados also was able to direct me to all sorts of great surf breaks around the island.  I tended to stay around the south end and had my best days about 5 min away at Freights Bay.  No need for a wetsuit, sea turtles swimming alongside you, and friendly locals…incredible all around surf vacation.  Will be returning!”
Thanks Eric!
