Barbados Bank Holidays - 2017

These are dates in Barbados when you can expect most offices, banks, grocery and department stores closed for the day, so please plan accordingly! If you are arriving on a bank holiday, you might want to make sure you have a few items on hand, such as a loaf of bread, a bit of coffee, some eggs, etc., at your holiday rental to tie you over until the grocery re-opens. We do have some convenience stores which may be open, but better safe than sorry! If you need assistance in this regard, please contact us and we can help get your holiday started on the right foot!
