Bathsheba Beach
Bathsheba is located on the Eastern coastline of Barbados. It is said that this area was named after the wife of King David whose name was “Bathsheba”. Legend has it that she bathed in milk to keep her skin beautiful and soft, and the rolling surf waters of Bathsheba’s “Soup Bowl” resembled Bathsheba’s bath. The area is popular with surfers. It is a popular area for locals and visitors alike and is dotted with several seaside cottages.

Barbados Wildlife Reserve
The Barbados Wildlife Reserve lies in an enclosed area under a canopy of mahogany trees with winding red brick pathways beneath. If you look closely at the bricks, you can still see the stamps of the manufacturing companies. The bricks were brought to Barbados by ships, which used them as ballast. During the 17th and 18th centuries, these red bricks were used to construct boiler furnaces in Barbados sugar factories. The large wheel in front of the snack bar was acquired from an old sugar factory and was once used to drive rollers for crushing the sugar cane.

The most popular animal at the Reserve is The Barbados Green Monkey. The monkey has brown and grey thick fur that has yellow and olive green flecks in it as an adult. In some lights, the monkey can appear green. This is why they are called green monkeys. Barbados Green Monkeys generally live in groups of fifteen to twenty. Within a family group, males gain their dominance by their size, strength and their ability to fight. Females, however, get their rank by the size of their families. Most infants are born during April and May.

My friend and I wanted to do at least one tour and decided on this one; so glad we did. This was such a nice tour by Glory Tours. Our tour guide was Charles who was quite informative, charming, friendly, and funny. It was a pleasure to have him as our guide and appreciated the amount of history he shared with us and he was open to questions we had. We enjoyed our half day tour visiting several sites in the comfort of a nicely kept and comfortable tour van. There was a lovely couple on this tour and we had such an enjoyable day visiting the sites, chatting, and having some good laughs. Definitely a nice tour to include on your trip!
Superb tour

We had an amazing tour with our guide 'Sunshine'. She was an excellent guide, gave us lots of information and was quite happy to answer questions. We thoroughly enjoyed both stops and had plenty of time at each.
Thank you Sunshine
Less than expected, but still worth it

This tour included Hunte’s gardens, the animal wildlife reserve, and a drive across the island to Bathsheba to see mushroom rock. It did not include the caves or lunch, though we expected these based upon the online description. That being said, our tour guide Sunshine was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the island. We loved the monkeys as well as the other more unexpected animals at the wildlife reserve, and Hunte’s gardens were both beautiful and peaceful. And the drive from the west coast to the east coast (Bathsheba) enhanced our overall understanding of Barbados. It was a great, well-priced first day activity.
Nice day out for the family

We enjoyed our private tour with Stephen. He was professional and courteous and the vehicle was new and spacious. Stephen knows half the people on the island and the other half know him! A very nice day out.
