Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

WHAT YOU VISIT
- Andromeda Botanical Gardens
Previously a private family garden, the gardens are a true horticultural delight. Relax by the pond and watch the dragonflies, feed the fish and meander the paths bordered by orchids, ferns, hibiscus and even the famed bearded fig trees, for which it is believed the original settlers gave the island the name Los Barbados or "the bearded ones."

- Belleplane
This bucolic working farm raises the island's famed black belly sheep. Unique to Barbados, these sheep are believed to have been imported from Africa by early British settlers.

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY
After a drive up the coast, you'll stop for photos at Bathsheba Beach, where waves, wind and time have carved giant mushroom-shaped rock formations that jut out of the pounding surf.

SNACK
Take time to sit in the quaint café at the Andromeda Botanical Gardens and enjoy a snack among the peace and quiet (at your own expense).

WHAT YOU SEE ALONG THE WAY
Lush hillsides of softly swaying sugarcane, winding roads bordered by plants and lush, overhanging trees and coral stone walls are just a few of the scenic delights you'll see along your country drive.
