Beyond the beach: Exploring beautiful Barbados

Barbados has long been a lusted after as a honeymoon destination due to its glorious weather, picturesque beaches and impressive selection of luxury hotels, but many who visit the island are unaware of what lies beneath the surface of this Caribbean paradise. Behind the palm trees and white sand is an island bursting with culture and history waiting to be discovered.

Below we’re going to show you some of the best things to do in Barbados that don’t involve a beach towel and a bottle of factor 15! Trade in your swimsuit for walking shoes a join us as we explore the beautiful island of Barbados...

Hunte’s Gardens

Those who appreciate nature’s beauty would be foolish to miss Hunte’s Gardens in Saint Joseph Parish when visiting Barbados. These majestical and serene gardens are abundant in wildlife and flowers, perfect for finding inner peace on holiday.

Harrison’s Cave

Next up on our tour of the island is Harrison’s cave. First mentioned in historical documents in 1795, this subterranean environment can be reached by tram or on foot and is a must-see for those fascinated by natural wonders.  

St. Nicholas Abbey

History buffs should make sure to visit St. Nicholas Abbey when visiting the island for a unique look into the past of this enchanting abbey. Entry allows you to visit the abbey itself as well as the great house, gardens, gullies and rum distillery.

George Washington House
George Washington House

This brightly coloured house was occupied by a 19-year-old George Washington for two months, making Barbados the only foreign nation he visited. Now a museum, this house is definitely worth a visit if you’re in the Bridgetown area.

Dover Beach

Though exploring the island is all well and good it wouldn’t be a trip to Barbados without a little bit of your time spent lounging on the beach and perhaps even taking part in a bit of scuba diving or snorkelling. What’s more you can save 40 per cent when staying at Couples Barbados on Dover Beach from the 1 Sep – 4 Dec 2013!
