The most easterly of the Caribbean islands, Barbados has white sandy beaches and tranquil waters on its Caribbean facing side and turbulent seas on its Atlantic coast. Politically stable and prosperous, the Island has been independent since the 1960s. Children’s rights campaigners have been critical of the State’s underdeveloped and punitive juvenile justice system.
