Coworking in Barbados

Looking for coworking spaces in Barbados? Here is an overview:

Working Remotely in Barbados

Warm weather, clear turquoise blue water, basically a beautiful stretch of white sand beach surrounding the whole island, great internet, and the best surf in the Caribbean. Adding to the above, in the summer of 2020 Barbados became one of the hot new digital nomad destinations by creating a 12-month visa program for digital nomads.

Needless to say, this Caribbean paradise is a great Coworksurf destination. However since the island is small and a lot of stuff needs to be imported, be prepared that Barbados also can be a bit pricy.

When you’re not surfing there is plenty of other activities to enjoy. Explore the colorful underwater world surrounding the island by snorkeling and diving, or get some adrenalin in your system by enjoying the excellent wind and kite surfing on the southeastern tip of Barbados. If you're into hiking, the island also has lots of beautiful nature to explore.
Once the day is over, if you're not exhausted from all the activities, St Lawrence Gap with its vibrant nightlife is the spot to be at.

Places to Work From

When it comes to coworking spots there are currently 2 coworking spaces to choose from: the Regus Coworking space and the 10 Habitat coworking space. If none of these are according to your taste, no worries, there are a lot of great cafés and the wifi is usually powerful. A few nice cafes to cowork from are: Surfers Cafe, The Coffee Bean Cafe, Artsplash, and Baby Doll Cafe

Barbados Digital Nomad Visa

The Barbados digital nomad visa is called the Barbados Welcome Stamp program and allows people who work online to stay in Barbados for 12 months. To qualify for the program you should earn more than 50 000 USD per year and you can apply in a few minutes.

However, considering the 2k cost of the program makes this more like a great promotional scheme than something that most digital nomads would take advantage of. Especially considering that if you’re just looking to stay in Barbados for a shorter time there is no need for the Digital nomad visa.

Visitors from Australia, Canada, France, Ireland, the UK, and the USA can stay for a maximum of six months in Barbados without a visa. While other EU nationals can stay for up to three months.

Surfing in Barbados

Soup Bowl Barbados

With a consistent swell almost all year around (the best time for surfing is between Nov-June), a lot of shore wind, and a very nice and warm water temperature, Barbados is a great surf destination.

Most surf spots are located on the south and southwest coast and this (around Oistins and Hastings) is also a great place to stay if you’re looking for good restaurants and fun nightlife.

However, if you are 100% focused on high-performance surf and heavy barrels you may also want to consider staying on the East Coast. Besides surfing and hiking, there is not a lot to do here, but the east coast of Barbados does host Soup Bowl - one of Kelly Slater's favorite waves. So regardless of if you don't want to spend your whole time on the East Coast, you should definitely consider paying it a visit. Besides the amazing surf, the nature here is also very pristine.

If you are a beginner to an intermediate surfer, your favorite spot will probably be Freights Bay, the longest left on the island, and a longboard and usually very chill surf paradise. Surfing next to giant turtles is not uncommon here.

Besides Freights Bay and Soup Bowl, there are of course also an array of other surf spots on the island. Although it is possible to travel in Barbados with public transport the best way to reach all the spots is a rental car.
If you are a beginner two great surf schools are Barrys - just in front of a nice beginner spot and Bodies - a mobile surf school.
For after-surf food, the Oistin Fish Fry is the spot to be on Friday nights and the freshly caught snappers are delicious.

Getting There

Since Barbados is a small Caribbean island far off the coast the easiest way to get there is by plane. There are regular direct flights from all major airports and also flights to and from nearby Caribbean islands in case you want to explore some more of the Caribbean.

If you happen to have a sailing boat, Barbados is also a popular place for stopping by while sailing the Caribbean.
