Local Attractions

We are close to Bridgetown the capital of Barbados. Other tourist attractions are St, Lawrence Gap where the restaurants and live music attract lots of tourists.

Oistins fish fry on Friday and Saturday night are a must. Here you will be able to eat locally caught fish and the local evening entertainment is unique. Please look here for more information on Oistins


Carlisle Bay is a beautiful stretch of beach and considered one of the top 10 beaches in the world. A trip to Doris' Rum shack on this beach is a must. you cant miss it as it has nearly every national flag in the world flying from her rooftop. Look here for views of Carlisle Bay


Harrison's Cave is a fantastic day out and should not be missed if you can fit it in. St Johns church on the east coast gives you a breathtaking view of the whole east coast of Barbados. A car/taxi is needed for this trip.

The Absolute Rum Shack (or Watering Hole) at the entrance to St Lawrence gap is a must on a Saturday. The atmosphere is fantastic and the characters unique. Helena who runs the place can hardly see over the bar but rules the roost. You will pay at least half price for drinks here compared to the bars in St Lawrence Gap.

Shakers is what I describe as an up market rum shack/restaurant, it is not far from the house but can be difficult to find. It's worth a visit as their beer battered catch of the day is to die for and their baby back ribs are awesome. Great value for money and a great friendly atmosphere. Make an effort to visit this restaurant, you won't be disappointed look here for info on shakers
