Top 10 Picks of Barbados
1. Harrison’s Cave Experience
At the heart of Barbados lies one of its greatest wonders — the magnificent Harrison’s Cave. Located in the central uplands of the island, this crystallized, limestone cave is characterized by flowing streams, deep pools of crystal-clear water and towering columns.
2. St. Nicholas Abbey & Train Ride
Tastings and tours on the grounds of a 1658 sugar plantation with a Jacobean mansion & rum distillery.
3. Tour Of The East Coast
The East Coast of Barbados is distinctly different from the rest of island — undeveloped and sparsely populated. Imagine panoramic, dramatic and rugged coastal scenery, powerful Atlantic waves rolling into miles of windswept beaches, colourful villages of wooden chattel houses dotting lush hillsides and banana and coconut trees lining the roadside.
4. Huntes Flower Gardens
Created by a legendary horticulturist with an unusual flair, Anthony Hunte, these extraordinary gardens will please even the most keen gardeners and enthusiasts. Their placement is really most unusual — in the center of Barbados’ rain forest, in a sink-hole-like gully. Thanks to such interesting location, the gardens offer a multidimensional experience, with vigorous plants densely growing on many levels, from sunny and open spaces, down to a mysterious, dark heart of real Caribbean jungle.
5. Oistins Fish Fry
Oistins is an active fishing town on the south coast and is a hub of activity on weekend nights. On Friday night particularly, the big thing to do is go to the fish fry at Oistins Bay Gardens. The food is the main draw — excellent fish, (tuna, swordfish, marlin, mahi-mahi, flying fish), lobster, and chicken are served in an extremely informal setting. You can get your fish grilled or fried depending on which vendor you choose from. It’s all cooked on the spot in front of you.
6. Catamaran Cruise
Cruise along Barbados’ West Coast in a private catamaran. Unwind on deck with your friends and family, and soak up the sun and sea views as you cruise in the Caribbean Sea. Snorkel alongside sea turtles, float over a shipwreck teeming with schools of colorful fish and swim to a beach for a stroll on its pristine sands. Food and beverages are included.
7. Atlantis Submarines
The Atlantis Submarine offers truly unique, fun, family friendly, natural underwater (and over-water) Caribbean adventures. It’s one of the top things to do in Barbados!
8. Barbados Wildlife Reserve
Come and take a relaxing stroll through a natural habitat for many animals, including, of course, the green monkey. Most of the animals roam freely through the reserve, which is a much nicer way to see them than through bars like at a typical zoo. Note that a good time to see the animals is 2:00 PM, as this is their feeding time!
9. Mount Gay Rum Tour
The Mount Gay Visitor Experience welcomes you to discover the secrets behind Barbados’ finest and most celebrated spirit. With many experiences to choose from, you will explore the history of Mount Gay Rum as we take you on a journey of our 300-year-old rich heritage and the time-proven craftsmanship of the world’s oldest rum.
10. Animal Flower Cave
The Animal Flower Cave is located at the most northerly point of Barbados in the parish of St.Lucy. The name “Animal Flower Cave” comes from the sea anemones found in the pools of the cave. Some of these pools are deep enough for you to swim in.There are also several openings looking out to sea, offering spectacular views!
