The discovery of Barbados is commonly credited to the Portuguese explorer Pedro a Campos who was steering his course from the Cape Verde Islands towards Brazil but he was blown off course by a strong tempest. However, some historians believe that the island was discovered by the Spanish explorer, Juan de Esquivel, during his voyage of exploration in the spring of 1536. In either case, the island was first discovered in the year 1536 by Europeans, and the Portuguese were the first to establish a settlement on the island.
It is an island country in the Lesser Antilles of the West Indies, in the Atlantic Ocean. It is 34 km long and 11 km wide, and is one of the Caribbean’s more famous destinations, with its beaches being a major tourist attraction. The island is located about two-thirds of the way from Trinidad and Tobago to Jamaica. The country shares maritime boundaries with the nations of Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Saint Kitts and Nevis, and Trinidad and Tobago.
