Time ZoneEastern Caribbean (UTC-4) For other uses, see Barbados (disambiguation). Barbados (Portuguese word for bearded-ones, pronounced /bÐærÝêbeÐ¬do×èz, -dÐÆs/), situated just east of the Caribbean Sea, is an independent Continental Island-nation in the western Atlantic Ocean. Locaed at roughly 13Ã North of the equator and 59Ã West of the prime meridian, it is considered a part of the Lesser Antilles. Its closest island neighbours are Saint Vincent & the Grenadines and Saint Lucia to the west. To the south lies Trinidad and TobagoÇöwith which Barbados now shares a fixed official maritime boundaryÇöand also the South American mainland. Barbados' total land area is about 430 square kilometres (166 square miles), and is primarily low-lying, with some higher regions in the country's interior. The highest point in Barbados is Mount Hillaby in the parish of Saint Andrew. The geological composition of Barbados is thought to be of non-volcanic origin and is predominantly composed of limestone-coral formed by subduction of the South American late colliding with the Caribbean plate. The island's climate is tropical, with constant trade winds off the Atlantic Ocean serving to keep temperatures mild. Some less developed areas of the country contain tropical woodland and mangroves. Other parts of the interior which contribute to the agriculture industry are dotted with large sugarcane estates and wide, gently sloping pastures, with panoramic views down to the coast also.
Barbados's human development index ranking is consistently among the top 50 in the world. For example, in 2006, it was ranked 31st in the world, and third in the Americas, behind Canada and the United States.
