Over the weekend, I decided to take a little road trip to five locations, with the most spectacular views on the island. Barbados is such a beautiful destination with many places to visit and explore. Sometimes, Barbadians take cool casual drives across the island to take in the scenery or to relax.
During public holidays and Sundays, Barbadians usually to pack a picnic basket filled with finger foods, sodas, and snacks, and head to a park to sit and relax while enjoying the peace.
If you are looking for spectacular views on the island, here are the top five scenic places to visit, while on the island.
A surfers paradise tucked away in the parish of St. Joseph and where the Atlantic Ocean meets Barbados. Known for many things such as its popular tourist spots, views, rum shops, restaurants, and finally the popular Bathsheba rock.
The world-famous soup bowl is held in Bathsheba yearly and attracts many surfers from around the world.
St. Johns Church
Located in the corner of church view St. John, this church is one of the many locations which offers spectacular views of BATH St. John and St. Philip. Our sixth Prime Minister David Thompson, who died of cancer in the year 2010, can also be found buried at the St. John’s parish church cemetery.
The Cemetery is located to the back of the church, where the view of St. Philip and a sundial, can be seen. A souvenir shop is on the property, may you need to purchase any souvenirs or a quick snack.
Morgan Lewis Windmill
The only working windmill in the Caribbean, Morgan Lewis Windmill is located below Cherry tree hill. You can tour the windmill from Monday-Sunday 9:00 am-5:00, for a fee but entry onto the grounds is free.
After your tour, have a bite at The Grind artisan café.
Cherry tree hill
Surrounded by luscious greenery, tall trees, and the home to St. Nicolas abbey, Cherry tree hill offers a view of the coast like no other. The hill is above sea level and offers you a beautiful view of the east coast, and the Morgan Lewis windmill.
This College located in the Parish of St. John is the oldest Anglican college in the western atmosphere. Codrington is known for its spectacular views located to the back of the building. The gates have been closed but we do hope that they will be reopened soon.
