Mount Hillaby

Barbados is mostly flat except for Mount Hillaby, the highest point in St. Andrew parish. It's famous for hikers because it offers panoramic views of the Scotland District and Bathsheba Beach. The trail features unique white coral stone and volcanic rock.


Rihanna Drive

Before becoming a global pop star, Rihanna was Robyn from Charles F. Broome Memorial Primary School. Her childhood home on Westbury New Road was renamed Rihanna Drive in 2017. Visitors flock to the brightly painted house, where neighbours often share stories about her early years.


Carlisle Bay

On Bridgetown's southern edge, Crescent-shaped Carlisle Bay features stunning white sand and calm turquoise waters. Nearby shipwrecks, some accidental and others for coral reef growth, create a snorkeler's paradise with fish, lobsters, and turtles.


Animal Flower Cave

Animal Flower Cave, located at Barbados' northern tip in St. Lucy parish, features reflective pools and large openings with ocean views. The Ward family has owned it since 1927 and offers guided tours. A cliff-side restaurant above serves homemade fresh lemonade.



Fish is a staple throughout the Caribbean, and flying fish reigns supreme in Barbados. At Oistins, visitors can enjoy flying fish, tuna, mahi-mahi, swordfish, marlin, and lobster. The lively atmosphere features domino games, calypso music, and dancing.


Harrison's Cave

Harrison's Cave features water-eroded limestone rock with unique stalactites and stalagmites formed by calcium-rich waters. Accessible via a tram tour, the caverns and crystallised formations remain virtually undisturbed, offering visitors a magical experience.


St. Lawrence Gap

"The Gap," less than a mile long, is the hub for shopping, dining, and nightlife in Christ Church parish. Here, enjoy local street food and coconut water while watching the sunset from the short boardwalk.



Explore Bridgetown, Barbados' capital, where key places are easily accessible. Central attractions include the Parliament buildings near National Heroes Square. The Garrison Historic Area, Barbados Museum and George Washington House lie in the South.
