If you visit the wildlife reserve you might like to climb up the signal station and listen to the 6 minutes recording. The views from up there are worth it but a special trip to the signal station alone isn't.

We stopped in the area to visit the Barbados Wildlife Reserve but could not skip the Forest hike. The hike through the Mahogany forest is serene and wild. Quiet, remote and alone, that is how it felt. We did pass a few other guests, but we still felt like we were by ourselves. Several benches can be found on short... More

The signal station itself is not that interesting as buildings go, but the view over to the coast from the top floor is good. The forest itself is actually much more enjoyable than the signal station, especially on a hot, sunburnt day, walking through leafy foliage and mahogany trees with monkeys overheard is terrific. It is also interesting to see... More

We all loved this place (as much as the wildlife reserve!) the forest is so peaceful and my boys loved reading all the lift the flap questions and really learnt a lot. The paths are gorgeous and well maintained (would be hard with younger kids/buggy) - make sure you walk right down to the cave. It's worth it! When we... More

The signal station is in a central location with fantastic views of the island. The facilities are limited and it would be difficult for anyone with walking or breathing difficulties as there is quite a walk from the road up a hill with steps to the actual station. The station is on a one way road, do not miss the... More

The signal station and Grenade Hall Forest is a visit that is coupled with the Wildlife Reserve - the entrance fee covers both visits. At BDS$23.70 each ( approx US$12) this is one Barbados visit that is quite good value for money. The signal station has been renovated and a short audio guide sets the scene. There are good views...

Went alongside a trip to the Barbados wildlife reserve as the ticket prices are inclusive of this too..we preferred this to the Wild life Reserve. Peaceful walk but wear sensible shoes as paths are steep and slippery not suitable for anyone with mobility issues . Were able to feed the green monkeys with a handful of seeds . We walked... More

The signal station has been renovated relatively recently and is interesting for the perspective it gives on that period of Bajan history - and the audio is a useful supplement. The views from the top are worth the trip but maybe some indication could be given as to where the othe signal station were to connect with? Back down to... More

Visited the Wildlife Reserve in April 2016 as part of an organised trip alongside Harrison's Caves ( also excellent). Very much enjoyed seeing the green monkeys who had just been fed when we visited. The tortoises, peacocks, deer, reptiles and birds were also great. The path through the reserve is uneven however and I would suggest stout footwear and to... More
