What You Can Expect

Barbados Island and Beach Tour

Spend time on the beach in Barbados!

After pickup at your hotel in Bridgetown, head up the west coast of the island with your guide. This side of the island, the Caribbean side, is referred to as 'the gold coast' due to its concentration of upscale resorts and large homes (including native pop star Rhianna's.)

Stop in Holetown at St James Parish church, the oldest church on the island. Tour the church, which dates from 1628, with your guide before climbing back aboard your van and heading further up the coast to Cherry Tree Hill. This elevation (850 feet/260 meters) provides panoramic views of the coast and the tropical island landscape of St Andrew Parish. 

Drive to the Atlantic side of the island, stopping at Barclays Park. Opened in 1966 by Queen Elizabeth II, this 50-acre (20-hectare) park on a beachside hill provides a relaxing spot to stop and have a drink. Choose from the provided beer, fruit punch or the local favorite rum punch. 

Stop at the picturesque village fishing village of Bathsheba, popular with surfers. Then drive about 30 minutes through the sugar cane fields across the island, ending up at Carlisle Bay. 

Swim, snorkel or lounge on the beach during 2 hours of free time. Take the opportunity to purchase lunch or participate in any water activities at your own expense before climbing back in the vehicle and heading back to Bridgetown for port or hotel drop-off.

Excellent value for money! Picked up outside of the port don't wait inside the port where the other tours go from in a mini bus, there were only four of us. I had a little trouble understanding our guide Eddie due to his accent and my bad hearing but got the gist of most of his commentary. Spent 2-3 hours touring the island with a couple of stops for photos and a drink at a nice bar on the Atlantic coast best side of the island, then a couple of hours on the beach before being taken back to our ship. Only criticism would be that we would have preferred to go to a quite beach rather than one packed with sunbeds, bars, water sports and loud music, we saw some much nicer beaches that Carlisle Bay on our tour. If there were good value tours available like this on every island we would have done one every day but most tours like this would be double the money.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2016

Eddie was extremely personable and knowledgeable. He was also willing to take extra time or detours wherever we wanted.

It was very kind of him to buy us a beer in Bathsheba, too.

This is an excellent way to see a good portion of Barbados and become more familiar with the island. I recommend doing it early in your visit here.

Fantastic tour for half a day! Our guide Eddy was great we had a minibus just for us on this occasion. Eddy took us everywhere and explained where we were and some of the history of Barbados which made it interesting and fun!
Well worth the trip!
