Want to experience an authentic sightseeing tour of Barbados? We recommend the Barbados Island Tour with Lunch and Wildlife Sanctuary.
Your tour starts with convenient pick-up at your hotel then heads through the countryside to the Earthworks Pottery. Here you’ll get the chance to meet local potters and see them transform simple clay into beautiful pottery – both functional (dinnerware, pen holders, etc) and decorative.
Your journey through the landscape of rural Barbados continues to St. John’s Parish Church. This stunning Gothic-style church dates back to the 1800’s and is one of many Anglican churches built on the island by the early British settlers. Explore the historic church, see the graves of some of some well-known persons buried in the churchyard, and enjoy captivating views of the eastern coastline.
The tropical adventure continues with a tour of Flower Forest! Roam through the trails among beautiful flowering plants and towering trees. Sit on the benches and soak up the tranquility and natural beauty of this magical place. Don’t miss the look-out points which offer clear views to the coastline.
Continue along the east coast to Bathsheba, a rustic seaside village featuring pounding surf of the Atlantic Ocean, unique rock formations, natural ocean pools, and a relaxed Caribbean vibe. Chat with local and visiting surfers while you take stunning photos.
Ready for a lunch stop? The Sand Dunes Bar and Restaurant offers a warm welcome to visitors and serves up authentic local dishes and refreshing drinks in a laid-back atmosphere.
The final stop is at the Barbados Wildlife Reserve, where you meander through the trails and see the animals in their natural habitat. Some animals – snakes, birds, caimans, etc. – are kept in large enclosed areas for their (and your!) safety. The local Green Monkeys are particularly popular. These primates were brought to Barbados from Africa in the 17th century and are now abundant across the island.
