The Hidden Gems of Barbados

We’ve already looked at Harrison’s Cave last week, so this week we cross the road and take a walk through Welchman Hall Gully. Located in the centre of the island, this eco-wonderland is home to a plethora of tree species and ferns and the like. Fun fact, it is widely thought that the grapefruit originated at Welchman Hall Gully, the product of a cross between an orange and shaddock. Barbados is full of hidden gems like this! On your tour you can also watch the Barbados Green Monkey in its natural habitat, roaming free. There is a daily feeding, but the animals are still wild. We would recommend that you have a hired car to make the trip to the Gully, as there are no hotels around.

If you’re into architecture and churches, then there are three treats awaiting you on your drive to the middle of the island. The St. Thomas Parish Church was built in 1936 to the style of many older Anglican churches. There are also the Sharon Moravian Church built in 1799 and the Clifton Moravian Church, which was built in 1839, both of which also hold great architectural interest. In your rental car all of these attractions are easily reached within minutes of each other. Just follow your GPS.  Remember, there are no beaches in St. Thomas, but the stunning views of the countryside and the ability to look all around the island from the higher vantage points more than makes up for this. As always, we suggest you rent a car to really enjoy what central Barbados has to offer. Remember, WeGatherin’ Barbados 2020 is still ongoing with lots of activities!
