Barbados Animal Flower Cave a Fun Family Adventure

Barbados animal flower cave is named after the marine anemones found within its tidal pools. They are marine plants that are very life like. To feed they open up like flower in bloom but if you touch them they coil back into a tight bud on a rock so you can hardly know they exist.

They live in pools in the cave but often get washed out in storms. They were very plentiful a decade ago, but today there are just a few specimen's left. Still the cave is well worth visiting for its cool places and its fascinating structures and colors. Nature is it own artist in these hidden places.

Barbados Cove Bay - Scenic Atlantic Lookout

Cove Bay is on the north-east coast of Barbados. It is a spectacular picnic spot on the cliffs over the powerful waves pounding racing across the Atlantic Ocean..

Its a rugged drive to maneuvering around cows, sheep and goats on a rocky scrabble road, but well worth the effort. You are rewarded with some of the most by the beautiful scenery of the northern coastline. Enjoy the quiet and invigorating breeze under the swaying coconut trees.

Its also on the waiting list for Unesco Heritage designation Unesco Source:

The website listed below covers the greater bathsheba area that strtches from tents Fishing village in the south - and up past Cattlewash to the sand dunes in the north.

It is  a rugged windswept Terran much appreciated for its rustic charm and wild ocean waves. The Scotland district has been proposed as a UNESCO Heritage site because of its unique geological forms and  its accretionary prism, a thick wedge of sediments at the junction of two tectonic plates, that are pushed together.

Ragged Point Barbados: Fresh air and great views!

Did you know that there are no land masses between the western coast of Africa and the eastern coast of Barbados?

Just imagine the fresh air that can be enjoyed at the easternmost point of Barbados - Ragged Point.

Added to that is spectacular scenery of rugged cliffs and waves of the Atlantic Ocean pounding the shore. This is truly one of the loveliest and most tranquil spots in Barbados.

A historic majestic lighthouse overlooks it all, the need for its warning to sailors now overshadowed by GPS and other technologies. Still it stands as a lovely reminder of the past. This is one of four lighthouses in Barbados, each special in its own way.

If you are visiting Barbados be sure to make a stop at Ragged Point and enjoy the scenes and the lovely fresh air! Have you already visited? Do leave your comments below...

Warm Mother's Day wishes from Barbados

We're wishing that all mothers could be enjoying relaxation and fun in sunny Barbados... it's well deserved we know.

Unfortunately you can't all be with us in Barbados for Mother's Day so we've put together warm wishes for this special day... enjoy them in the video below...

So how do we celebrate Mother's Day in Barbados? Well first thing you should know is that we Barbadians like to eat! Many of our celebrations revolve around food. Mother's Day lunches at restaurants across the island will be very popular. Others will choose a picnic (we call them excursions!) at one of our many beautiful beaches or parks.

Many will start the day with a Church services and still others will spend the day quietly at home enjoying the company of our special mothers.

However you spend your Mother's Day, we send you warm wishes from Barbados!

Why not send your Mom  a special Barbados Mother's Day e-card?

Discover Queen's Park Barbados!

Large Baobab tree in Queens Park Barbados
If you're visiting Barbados you must make a trip to capital city of Bridgetown! This historic city is over 375 years old and elegantly combines its historic buildings and traditions with modern shopping and conveniences.

If you're visiting by cruise ship then you're in luck because Bridgetown is just about a 10 minutes stroll from the Cruise Ship Terminal.

So what should you do after having a walk through Bridgetown and doing some duty-free shopping? Well a great idea would be to continue walking east and within 2 minutes you'll arrive at historic Queen's Park.

The main house in Queen's Park dates back to the 1700's and was home to the general commanding the troops of the British Garrison in Barbados. Just close your eyes and imagine being in these surroundings over 200 years ago!

Today it is a national park and a wonderful place to take a rest after a day in the bustle of Bridgetown. The art gallery often has local, Caribbean and international art on display so do stop and take a look.

Also look out for the solar-powered house, a wonderful example of how to use this natural resource to power our everyday household needs.

Another special sight in Queens Park is the large Baobab tree - some say it's a thousand years old!
