Bridgetown, Barbados ranks in the top 10.

Bridgetown, the capital and largest city of Barbados, comes ninth in our analysis with an average internet speed of 60.25 mbps – this is the third fastest in our analysis after Saint George’s in Bermuda and Noord in Aruba.

Bridgetown is also one of just five destinations on our list that offers remote workers a six month stay with no Visa requirements. This generous timeframe means remote workers can take their time and really enjoy everything this beautiful island has to offer.

According to research by Remote, Google searches for the terms “Remote Jobs” and “Remote Recruitment” have increased by 72% and 133% respectively in the past 12 months.

With many countries around the world relaxing their travel restrictions, remote workers now can relocate to whatever destination their heart desires, requiring little more than their passport, a laptop, and a stable internet connection.

To do this, Remote analysed and ranked the top-rated seaside locations across the globe on their population size, average internet speed, sunlight hours, visa requirements, entertainment options, average rent costs, cost of living and crime rates.

  1. Because the internet is shit and overpriced, cost of living is dreadful, rent is way too high, digital services are nonexistent and there really isn’t much this island has to offer outside of the beaches and fetes for entertainment, the second of which don’t usually appeal to digital nomads.

    I’m a remote worker that’s born here and I honestly prefer to be anywhere but here when I can help it because my work suffers just because of the internet and my dollar goes much farther in other places that actually work to market to this market.

    • Completely agree. The internet in Antigua is abysmal. APUA has great employees, who can’t do anything about the poor internet infrastructure. I cannot even count the number of times I’ve called APUA, there is never a solution. Again, the employees on the ground are great, it is the management of the service and the quality of the service that will never attract digital nomads. Plus, crime seems to be on the rise. Our port is falling apart while tourist stumble over the crumbling sidewalks. Antigua needs a leader.

  2. In all of the Internet stats, Antigua & Barbuda is LAST, DEAD LAST, in the Eastern Caribbean. We rolled out fiber in a spaghetti string network and think it was world class. IT US NOT. Montserrat has a MINIMUM of 100mbps to the home, and you have a choice of two fiber providers. That is the reason they are first and Antigua may not even be in the top 100.

  3. How sad & pathetic not even one of ANTIGUA beaches …this is to tell the tourism authority.

    ANTIGUA…… AINT THE ONLY ONE WITH BEACHES….SO FIND A BETTER UPSELL….

  4. No surprise here really since Antigua internet is overpriced and shitty connections. I have sailed around the entire Antigua and there are only maybe 50 beaches at most….365 is a good tourist slogan but not true….

  5. People! People! Isn’t it the governing body that we should be throwing our distaste to and not the country itself? Our beautiful beaches are there; it’s the management of our infrastructures that withholds us from realizing the potential of our limited Tourism resources. Before the government and the SB invest in our Utilities they prefer to let the infrastructures DIE and then outsource it to the GoF where they the authorities are rewarded with hefty kickbacks. Don’t be surprised if after the election whichever party forms the government outsource the internet to the GoF too. Wicked set ah people!!!

  6. Key point and my big problem “ which ever party wins the election “ , suggesting they are one and the same.
