Everyone wants to spend a day in paradise and Barbados is truly just that. To start your day we will journey over to the East Coast of Barbados. The first stop will be Cherry Tree Hill with its breathtaking views of the East Coast; from there we will make our way to Morgan Lewis Windmill. The windmill is on the top 100 endangered historical sites in the world. As we come down onto the coastline we will travel through Cattlewash and make a stop in Bathsheba, named for its great beauty; it is also the location of Soup Bowl, the favorite stop for surfers in Barbados. Next, the tour will stop at St John's Church, one of the oldest churches on the island, set on a cliff it captures spectacular views.
From this gothic church we will journey through the parish of St George, past the Gun Hill signal station and make our way to Garrison historic area - the British built first garrison in the West Indies at St Ann's Fort in 1705. The garrison, which served as the regional headquarters of the British Navy, soon expanded to include barracks and a parade ground. For more than a century, this was the largest British colonial garrison. The Garrison has a special importance for the people of Barbados, as it was here the flag of the independent nation was unfurled on the 30th of November, 1966.
After the tour you have the option to be returned to you hotel or cruise ship, Bridgetown for shopping or Pirates Cove for beach time. If you do select to be dropped off for shopping or beach time, you will have to make your own way back to the port or your hotel. We usually arrive in the Bridgetown and Pirates Cove area around 1pm.
