Experience the people, culture, and history of Barbados on this Pride of Barbados Plantations Tour. Take in scenic views and splendid architecture, feast on the delicious local cuisine, and enjoy the beer and rum that’s produced on the island.
What to Expect
Your tour will take you through historic Bridgetown and to the Garrison, which is now a World Heritage Site. Head north from here along the western coast, known by the locals as the Platinum Coast because of the number of million-dollar homes in the area.
Holetown, the next site of interest, was the first British settlement. See St. James Anglican Church, built on the site of the first place of worship on Barbados.
You’ll then head north-west to the small but historic town of Speightstown. Pass by 2 beautiful marinas, Port St. Charles and Port Ferdinand, and see the mega-yachts moored there.
As you leave the west coast and travel to the north-east side of the island, you’ll make the first official stop of the tour at the St. Nicholas Abbey Plantation. Enjoy a guided tour of the plantation house and its rum distillery. You’ll be offered a complimentary rum or fruit punch and also have a chance to taste their magnificent non-blended rum.
Continue east along the shoreline and experience the full force of the Atlantic Ocean crashing onto the island. At breathtaking Bathsheba you’ll see the famous surfing spot known as the Soup Bowl. This is a surfers’ paradise, featuring mushroom-shaped boulders offshore.
Stop at the Sunbury Plantation Great House for lunch, drinks, and a guided tour of the house, which has the largest collection of vintage horse carriages on the island.
