How safe is Barbados during 2024 T20 ICC World Cup Final

Hello All,

I want to know how safe Barbados will be during 2024 T20 ICC World Cup Final at Kensington Oval cricket ground and what are the nearest hotels.

Please do not get me wrong. Every city has good , bad and ugly areas hence an honest question because we NEVER visited Barbados before. We REALLY want to have a pleasant experience which we will be more than happy to share later on this site as well as on other social media platforms.

Any tips to make our experience THE BEST will be highly appreciated.

We are thinking of visiting Barbados from USA for 2024 T20 ICC World Cup final in Barbados.

Warm regards and MTIA.

We suspect much safer than the sad event after the recent Superbowl but we haven't got a crystal ball. We've been to a few cricket matches in Barbados over many years and no hint of trouble. We would not give it a second thought. Most people are there to enjoy the game, have a laugh with the opposition and share a few beers. Security is quite thorough to get in at Kensington Oval.

Nearest hotels are Hilton and Radisson but nowhere is too far away if you stay South coast or West. We stayed at Coral Mist hotel near Rockley beach in December for the England games and shared a taxi back with total strangers after the game. A very pleasant experience was enjoyed by us all.

Thanks a LOT folks. Highly appreciated. I am sure the security will be EXTRA TIGHT as many foreigners will come and Barbados can NOT afford to be lax as far as security is concerned. Of course, there may be a few localized incidents after folks get too drunk Etc.

The only danger I have encountered during big Cricket Finals is the assault on your Eardrums caused by the noise ( singing ) made by the “ Barmy Army “ at any local Rum Shop from early to late in the evening .

Other than that , it’s a pretty safe time .

We went to the T20 night match in December. Our very first cricket match. It was awesome! The atmosphere was great in the party stand … we had some brilliant banter with the locals.

Outside after the match there were loads of taxis available & no trouble at all.
