Harrison's Cave, Saint Thomas Parish

#1 of 10 in Nature in Barbados
Venture into an ancient subterranean limestone cavern at Harrison's Cave. Officially only explored in 1970, it has been developed into a tourist-friendly site, with lighting and trails throughout. Witness bizarre rock formations sculpted over millennia by unseen forces, as you walk under hanging stalactites and around protruding stalagmites. Wander past brightly hued pools, and take a tram to the lowest point of the caves to witness a majestic, buried waterfall.

  • One of the great natural beauties of Barbados. We took the tram tour, which is definitely preferable for those who do not want to crawl around on their knees for three hours. The tram tour tour is 4t minutes long, and has two stops where you are allowed to get off and take pictures while walking around a little bit. Helmets must be worn at all times while inside the cave, but they are provided. I would definitely like to return to do the three hour tour, but that could just be because I'm the adventurous one in my family!
  • Amazing cave! More of a cave town or city filled with ancient stalactites and stalagmites. Very tour guides, safe warm cave. They have a range of tours depending on your comfort level in small spaces.
