What You Can Expect

Barbados Shore Excursion: Coastal Sightseeing Tour

Coastal Sightseeing Tour

While you’re in port in Barbados, spend your time discovering its great beauty and coastal diversity. On this coastal sightseeing shore excursion, you'll visit the hidden spots and beaches that make Barbados one of the Caribbean’s most enchanting islands.

You’ll be picked up from your cruise ship port, and driven along the south coast to the Barbados capital of Bridgetown. You'll then travel up the coast, stopping through Oistins, Miami Beach (try some fish cakes and coconut punch here) and Foul Bay. After Foul Bay, visit Codrington College, which is the oldest Theological College in the Western hemisphere.

Next, visit the goth church of St John, one of the oldest churches on the island. This church has spectacular views of the east cost of Barbados.

You'll make your way to lunch after the visit to the St John's Church and then onward to Morgan Lewis Windmill. The windmill sits near Cherry Tree Hill, where you'll make a stop for photos. After this you'll make your journey to the northern tip of the island, stopping at North Point and continuing on through the islands oldest towns - Speightstown and Holetown.

This is the ultimate coastal Barbados adventure, and you don’t want to miss admiring the island’s incredible natural beauty. The pristine beaches, turquoise water and towering palm trees make for wonderful photos; don’t forget your camera, as you will stop several times along the way to capture these scenes.

Wow! What a day. Our driver is passionate about life, what he does and Barbados. It is a very full day of driving and sightseeing. The driver knows the island well and shares all the history and tips very well. I enjoyed the north coast rock formations, such a difference to the rest of the island. Lunch was at a picturesque village by the water, just like on the postcards. I can not recommend this tour enough and it has to be the best there is.

Our tour was great. Our guide, Chris, was well informed, pleasant and willing to take us to places not necessarily on the planned tour. For example, we went to a fish market to see a flying fish and to a grocery store to purchase local hot sauce. We were especially impressed with the beauty of the north end watching the huge waves smash into large rock formations. There was only four in our group and the Viator's individual attention scored again! C and S
