Barbados by night

Photographer Sean Drakes enveloped himself in the magic of Barbados's nightlife and brought back these images especially for Caribbean Beat readers. As you can see, there's no end to the activities, especially at night, in beautiful Barbados

Photographer Sean Drakes took his appetite for nightlife on a week-long mission in the Land of the Flying Fish to test the dance floors, join the sizzle at the hot spots, and unearth a few well-kept secrets. Going out in Barbados means you can’t miss the nightlife Mecca, St Lawrence Gap, or The Gap; nor Holetown and  Bridgetown, not to mention Oistins. Drakes’s verdict is that whether you are heading to Barbados for vacation, honeymoon or spring break, you’ll find no shortage of spirited activities and entertainment come nightfall!
