My friend had Hilton points burning a hole in his pocket, so he invited me to come with him. He chose the Hilton Barbados Resort as it is right by Pebbles Beach, which is a beautiful, very calm and quiet beach. To get to Barbados, we went on a cruise and then took a taxi to Hilton. The Hilton has its own beach, which is nice and feels somewhat secluded. At Pebbles Beach, I signed up for dive school to be taught how to Standup paddleboard. It wasn't as easy as it seemed -- I started off by paddling on my knees then gradually standing up after I got the gist on how to balance myself on the board. Around sunrise, we saw horses swimming in the water!
