What we love about Barbados

Everything comes together to make one incredible destination: pristine beaches, unique cave formations, abundant wildlife and lush scenery. Barbados offers a real escape into island life, with historic rum distilleries, opportunities for local immersion and a fascinating colonial history to be explored.

The Animal Flower Cave

The Animal Flower Cave is located under the North Point cliffs in St. Lucy parish, where the Caribbean and Atlantic meet. Discovered by two English explorers in 1780, the cave is estimated to be around 500,000 years old and remains the only accessible sea cave in Barbados. The walls of the cave have been colored green and brown by oxidation of copper and iron, creating a mystic feel inside. Even if spelunking isn’t your thing, the ocean views are still worth the visit.

Highland pottery

Visitors are often amazed by the number of pottery shops when they visit Barbados. Many of the rocks underlying Barbados consist of clay sedimentary deposits, which is why pottery has been a well-defined and practiced industry in Barbados for centuries. Highland pottery is located in the Scotland District of St. Andrew, where red 'terra cotta' clay is abundant, homemade pottery is molded and technique is often demonstrated.

St. Nicholas Abbey

St. Nicholas Abbey has been the go-to spot for Barbados’ award-winning rum since 1660. Worrying that the estate would fall vulnerable to large developers, Larry Warren decided to carry on the legacy by purchasing and restoring it in 2006. Unlike other distilleries, St. Nicholas Abbey produces its boutique rum in traditional small batches, with an annual production of only 6,000 bottles. The spirit is aged in bourbon oak casts to create a rich color before hand-bottling into elegant glass decanters. St. Nicholas Abbey personifies the rich history of rum making.

Barbados Wildlife Reserve

The Wildlife Reserve is a paradise for animal lovers, where you can stroll freely in a natural environment alongside the animals. The reserve is home to monkeys, peacocks, tortoises and Agouti and Brocket deer, which roam the premises daily. The monkeys are the most abundant during the afternoon when they are feeding, making it a great place to observe the animals up close.

Pebbles Beach

Though not the only beach in Barbados, Pebbles is known for its crystal clear, calm waters, soft sand and scenic city views. The beach is lined with snack vendors and extended from Browne’s Beach. It’s noted for being more lively than tranquil but, altogether, a great beach to hang out at.
