Forget your usual boring departure lounge, check out this departure beach where you can soak up some last minute sun before your flight. All you have to do is check in like you normally would and then simply chill. This new departure beach is coming in summer 2018 – don’t miss out!

Virgin holidays is introducing this fantastic idea where you can spend the last few hours of your holiday at the Departure Beach. You pay one fare and then can indulge in as much food, soft drinks, tea and coffee as you please, at the same time as topping up that tan or dipping in the crystal clear water.

We all know what a total bore it is to sit in an airport departure lounge where you can’t even go outside to breathe. You sit and wait with 2 hours to spare because you overestimated how early you needed to arrive. You sit and watch the people pass by wishing you could just be back outside in that gorgeous Barbados sun…

How It Works

Brownes Beach in Carilisle Bay, Barbados.


  • You will kindly be picked up from your hotel after breakfast whilst your hold luggage is taken straight to the airport for you to no longer worry about.
    You can then check in on the beach (Brownes Beach in Carilisle Bay)
  • Then simply relax on the beach and help yourself to the unlimited drinks at the bar and tuck into a delicious lunch.
    If you fancy taking a dip into the sea one last time, then you will be provided with a beach towel and plastic bag to put your wet beachwear into.
    You can have a shower, too, to feel fresh for flight – so you will have nothing to worry about!
