Full description
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. Stop at St. James Anglican Church, built on the site of the first place of worship on Barbados. As you leave the west coast and travel to the northern tip of the island, your next stop is the Animal Flower Cave where you will see crashing waves against the cliff. You then head off to 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. You will then stop for lunch and drinks at a local restaurant. 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.

Very good trip to get a comprehensive overview and insight into the country. We were picked up directly at the hotel.
