Overview

This tour is divided into the northern and southern region of Barbados. Travelers have the choice of choosing which region they'd wish to journey through with the final destination either being the calm beaches of the Caribbean sea on the west or the picturesque terrain of the Atlantic ocean on the east. It is not possible to see both regions on a single tour. In the north we see the Animal Flower Cave, the east shows us Bathsheba and the infamous "Soup Bowl" a surfer's paradise. Down south we'll see the picturesque cliffs of Bottom Bay and on the west, we see white sands, crystal clear waters and the most populated beaches on the island.

What To Expect

Brandons Beach
Brandon's Beach is located just on the outskirts of the capital city of Bridgetown, on the west coast of Barbados. The waters here are very calm, making it a fantastic spot for swimming and sea-bathing. Rent a beach lounger and umbrella for a relaxing beach day. Watch the catamarans sailing languidly up the coast, taking guests to snorkel and swim with sea turtles. Pack a picnic to enjoy on the tables under the shading trees.

Batts Rock Beach
Batts Rock is surprisingly developed for such a cloistered beach, and in addition to the beach amenities, La Cabane Beach Bar and Restaurant can also be found under the trees - an excellent option for an after swim snack.

At the end of another fantastic day, leaving the beach is not an option until the sun has set beautifully on the horizon. The view of the sunset is most stunning from the beach path which goes uphill, providing an unobstructed view of the catamarans heading to port in the last specks of daylight.

Simplicity and peace await all who venture to Batts Rock you will surely leave refreshed and rejuvenated from the soothing waters.

Holetown
In 1627, between February 17th and 20th, eighty (80) English Settlers landed at what is known as Holetown aboard a ship called the William and John . With them were ten (10) African Slaves, who were captured on the voyage. Holetown, was originally named Jamestown, after its benefactor, King James I of England. It is from this day that Barbados became a British Colony.

Animal Flower Cave
The Animal Flower Cave is located at the most northerly point of Barbados in the parish of St.Lucy. The name "Animal Flower Cave" comes from the sea anemones found in the pools of the cave. Some of these pools are deep enough for you to swim in. There are also several openings looking out to sea, offering spectacular views!

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Not Included

Cherry Tree Hill is eight hundred and fifty (850) ft above sea level and is actually an intrinsic part of the formidable St. Nicholas Abbey of the same parish. Actually due to the size of the St. Nicholas Abbey property, Cherry Tree Hill actually borders, St. Peter and St. Andrew. Many, many years ago, the drive on either side to get to it was flanked by cherry trees, thus the reason for its name; however these were replaced with mahogany trees which line the road up to this day. The change was instigated by The Treaty of Paris in 1763.

15 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Bathsheba
Legend has it that Bathsheba, wife of King David, bathed in milk to keep her skin beautiful and soft. Legend also says that the surf covered white waters of Bathsheba, Barbados rich in minerals and life is said to resemble Bathsheba's bath in both appearance health-giving value. This is the rugged east coast of Barbados, where visitors come to breathe the air, soak in the invigorating Bathsheba Pools and feel alive.

45 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Bottom Bay
The beach is semi enclosed by high coral cliffs, providing a panoramic view of the south shore. The scene is completed by the presence of tall palm trees that add to the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere of the bay. Always a popular picnic spot, it is also becoming a popular place to live and a number of homes are being built on the tops of the cliffs overlooking the beach and ocean. People who live there report spotting turtles and whales in the waters below the rocks. Bathing here is not recommended, as the waves are very strong, and great care should be shown by those who choose to do so.

Excellent private tour. Jamar was incredibly knowledgable and gave me a fantastic day in Barbados Coast to coast private tour. I learned about history, culture and much more. I traveled and have high standards, and I am very happy with Jamar my tour guide - He was great and spoke excellent English. Time and money well invested.
Great experience - highly recommend.

What a difference between the calm and clear waters on the west coast and the high cliffs and big surf in the North and East ! My only suggestion: take everything in at your own pace. There is much to see and 5 hours is not so much time, so you’ll have to tell your guide what your priorities are. Ours (Jamal) was quite helpful!
Great experience with great tour guide.

Private tour is the best way to go and Jamar was a great guide. He provided great historical information and took us to see hidden gems that other tourists companies do not.

Island Tour

I found Jamar via an online search for a local taxi and saw that he did island tours. He took us to dinner on Friday night and we thought he was so personable on the way over we booked him for a half day island tour. His car was new and very clean and his conversation was very informative. He has an intimate knowledge of the island and showed us places we probably would not have found on an "organized" tour from a resort. Thanks for taking us to the restaurant on the top of the hills overlooking the east coast of the island. The food was great and it was so nice to get a real flavor of Barbados.
