Your seatbelt is fastened, and you are finally jetting away from snowflakes and toward palm trees. Theres a lot more happening on Barbados than the spectacular white sand and clear blue waters. If this is your first visit to the island of smiling Bajans (as the locals are affectionately known), cricket matches and Zagat rated restaurants, you might want to pull that seatbelt a tad snugger . . . youre in for a great ride! Here are a few suggestions.
Take a jeep tour with Island Safari they offer land, sea, beach and adventure itineraries and guarantee a ton of fun. Or hire a cab to tour the sleepy villages, green hills and wild coastline of the east. Surfers love Bathsheba, where fierce Atlantic waves crash into long, unspoiled beaches. Or join the locals on a picnic at the rocky bays of North Point.
Stroll the boardwalk at Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary, the last mangrove woodland on Barbados. Take a walk through Welchman Hall Gully: the deep ravines of tropical plants are home to green monkeys! Want to get away from the crowd? Try the wide secluded beach at Bottom Bay. Only in Barbados can you go underground on the tram tour into Harrisons Cave: its said that runaway slaves sought refuge here.
The Barbados Museum covers all the bases: history, environment and culture. Why not visit historic St. Nicholas Abbey, the last remaining authentic 17th century home in the New World, while Morgan Lewis Mill is the lone, intact survivor from the age of wind-powered grinding of sugarcane. And no visit is complete without a visit to Sunbury Plantation House, a great house from the era of sugarcane.
Barbados is the birthplace of rum . . . and Mount Gay Rum has been distilling the worlds oldest for over 300 years. The Caribbean Cigar Company rolls thousands of stogies each week. Tours are free.
