We can take you to visit the impressive Harrison’s Cave with its amazing gallery of stalactites and stalagmites, then head to the Barbados Wildlife Reserve where you can stroll freely among the animals. Spend the rest of the day wandering around the beautiful Andromeda Botanical Gardens, a six-acre garden with one of the largest collections of tropical plants in the Caribbean, or take a visit up to Edghill Heights to the Earthworks pottery, where you can watch the pottery being made and even order a custom dinner service to be shipped home!
Next we can head to the buzzing bars of St Lawrence Gap in the south of the island to party when the sun goes down, and the Friday night fish fry at Oistins is a veritable Barbados institution. The bustling capital, Bridgetown, is also well worth a visit, home to colourful chattel houses, rum shops aplenty and some impressive colonial architecture.
Dining out on Barbados can be smart or barefoot, with reservations essential in high season. We highly recommend The Cliff (simply the best restaurant in the Caribbean) where you can dine under torch light to the sounds of the sea lapping on the beach underneath and the food is simply outstanding. But, you’ll be spoilt for choice as there are so many other superb places to eat on the island, including Daphne’s, elegant Cin Cin by the Sea and the cool, contemporary Lone Star. For a taste of authentic Bajan cuisine, try Angry Annie’s or Ragamuffins in Holetown, Pisces at St. Lawrence Gap or Champers overlooking Accra Beach.
