Bus to Tropical Forest in Collapsed Cave

Leave the port, pass the taxi drivers and just after the fish market, cross the road to Cheapside bus terminal. From here the Sturgess Bus will take you for $1US, yes, $1US, to Welchman Hall Gully (see video). The 45-minute ride will give you a view of the countryside and a chance to meet some real Bajans, who will make sure you don’t get lost. Harrison’s Cave is nearby.

Other attractions in Barbados

The number of high quality tourist attractions makes Barbados such a great holiday destination. Most are very well run offering really good value for money.

You can dive to 150 feet without getting wet or board the famous Concorde aeroplane which once flew at twice the speed of sound. Swim with turtles, visit a rum distillery… the list is endless. More information.

Walk to Paradise

Watch this video of the Standing Stones of Barbados before you go… Philip King created the mystical stone sculptures here and it’s rumoured the authorities want to knock them down. See them before they do!

Paradise Beach was very nearly the island home for celebrities Simon Cowell and Andrew Lloyd Webber, to name but a few. It is now a quiet spot within easy reach of Bridgetown. Take a ZR bus from outside the port, heading west – ask for the west coast road.  It’s only a couple of minutes’ ride through the port area. A taxi won’t break the bank either.
