Oistins (Barbados) – A traditional fishing village where you are free to fish on your own. Either way, you might find yourself spending more time at the local market, the Fish Fry every Friday, or sipping grapefruit cocktails on the beach. By the way, don't forget to eat one straight from the tree. Grapefruit is native to Barbados.
