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.

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!

It was a very worthwhile tour we saw so may things that I missed on my first trip and it was the first time that my husband had been to Barbados so we saw plenty of things and he was very knowledgeable in regard to history.

We had an amazing time and our cab driver was absolutely amazing as well. Highly recommend him! Saw some very awesome sights and even had time to relax on the beach for a little while.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

The tour gave my wife and myself a very good insight of the beauty of the island, driving along the west coast and then crossing the island and seeing a lovely view of the diverse east coast. The drive along the east coast was equally stunning and the final stop for a swim at carlise bay was most enjoyable. However I must commend the driver/guide (Edwin) who was extremely cooperative, kind, curteous and informative throught the tour. Thanks for providing my wife and I with a lovely day.


4 star rating: Recommended December 2016

Very scenic drive along the Atlantic Coast and through the interior and then on to Carlisle Beach for an amazing swim which we loved ... This has to be the best beach in the Caribbean!


4 star rating: Recommended February 2016

Our tour guide was punctual and friendly. The air conditioning in his van wasn't working and the van was full. It was a bit uncomfortable especially for the kids who were squished in the back row. Over all a good tour, but would have been better if the air conditioning was working.
