Barbados Island and Beach Tour

    What to Expect
    After pickup at your hotel in Bridgetown, head up the west coast of the island with your guide. This side of the island, the Caribbean side, is referred to as 'the gold coast' due to its concentration of upscale resorts and large homes (including native pop star Rhianna's.)

    Stop in Holetown at St James Parish church, the oldest church on the island. Tour the church, which dates from 1628, with your guide before climbing back aboard your van and heading further up the coast to Cherry Tree Hill. This elevation (850 feet/260 meters) provides panoramic views of the coast and the tropical island landscape of St Andrew Parish. 

    Drive to the Atlantic side of the island, stopping at Barclays Park. Opened in 1966 by Queen Elizabeth II, this 50-acre (20-hectare) park on a beachside hill provides a relaxing spot to stop and have a drink. Choose from the provided beer, fruit punch or the local favorite rum punch. 

    Stop at the picturesque village fishing village of Bathsheba, popular with surfers. Then drive about 30 minutes through the sugar cane fields across the island, ending up at Carlisle Bay. 

    Swim, snorkel or lounge on the beach during 2 hours of free time. Take the opportunity to purchase lunch or participate in any water activities at your own expense before climbing back in the vehicle and heading back to Bridgetown for port or hotel drop-off.

    Regular driver was sick, so they sent their mechanic. We rode around Barbados for two 1/2 hours. That was the tour. No history of Barbados, No rum punch or coconut bread. Terrible, especially for first timers of Barbados who wanted to know about Barbados and now never want
