This route takes you through some of the most fertile agricultural areas of Barbados and passes the old Andrews sugar factory, currently being rebuilt. Get off at Andromeda Gardens just before Bathsheba and stroll around this unique collection of tropical plants. A small cafe serves sandwiches and drinks.
Catch a later bus – or walk – down the hill to Bathsheba and marvel at the rocks carved by the waves. Watch the surfers tackle Soup Bowl. Walk along the beach to the rock pools where you can bathe at low tide – see the pools video here – but no swimming, it’s too dangerous. The bus back to Bridgetown leaves from the centre of the village.

Animal Flower Cave

  • Every hour, on the hour, every day
  • Visit Speightstown as well
  • After the cave, stop for a swim at Gibbes Beach

This Barbados bus heads up the west coast, past the hotels and beaches for which Barbados is famous.

Once past Speightstown it’s all change. The north is drier and more windswept and the settlements further apart. Ask the driver for the Animal Flower Cave.

It’s then a short walk along a road. Enjoy a meal, the pools and spectacular ocean views at the cave.

On the way back, ask the driver to drop you at Gibbes Beach for a swim. It’s quieter than others as there’s little parking nearby. Catch a later bus back to Bridgetown.

St John’s Church

  • Enjoy the east coastal views at this atmospheric church
  • Carry on to Codrington College and the avenue of palms

See the HARP Gun, the rusting monument to one man’s dream to revolutionise space technology.

Enjoy the views over Foul Bay and the walk along the cliff top. On your way back, get off at Oistins and walk to Miami Beach, a great place for a swim, a beer and some shade.

The bus takes you past the airport and the Concorde Experience. There’s a short walk to the gun site, but it’s well worth it for the views along the cliff. Watch out for paint ballers, particularly on the weekend, when it is best avoided!
