Stop At: Animal Flower Cave, North Point Barbados

Feel as if you are on the edge of the world as you look over the cliffs at North Point. See giant waves crashing against the rocks as the wild Atlantic Ocean meets the calm Caribbean Sea. Peer through the gaps in the rocks to watch the sea enter the cave. If you choose to go inside the cave to see the iconic view, make sure you wear sensible footwear as the rocks may be slippery. You can also paddle or swim in the cave pool so bring a costume and towel if you wish. It's well worth it!

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Morgan Lewis Mill, St. Andrew Barbados

We may even see the steam train coming from St Nicholas Abbey as it brings travellers to the same spot to witness the east coast scenery. You may also look at the locally produced crafts that will be on sale here if you wish.
A short distance away, we will find the Morgan Lewis Windmill. Your guide will tell you the interesting history of this beautiful restored Dutch style windmill and we can guarantee you’ll reach for your camera again! We will stop for lunch at a traditional Bajan cafe not far from here.

Taking the scenic route, we'll travel through the centre of Barbados, through the parishes of St Joseph and St George as we see the 'bread basket,' traditional villages and plantations to make our way back to our starting point after a perfect and memorable day.
