 Remember me


Barbados, with its rolling green hills, golf courses and polo fields, is often referred to as Little England, but you don't get beaches like these, even in Cornwall! Barbados established itself as a hot property market ahead of many of its Caribbean neighbours and has attracted wealthy investors for decades, including the 18 billionaires who have bought homes on the Platinum Coast.

The island has not lost its lustre over time and property prices continue to climb steadily. Even during 2009's global dip, Barbados held strong, considered the real estate equivalent of a gold bar.
