The waters here are very calm, making it a fantastic spot for swimming and seabathing. 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.

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.

• Admission Ticket Free

Speightstown
Speightstown was the first major port and commercial centre of Barbados. The town is named after William Speight, a member of Barbados' first Assembly during the Settlement years, and the former owner of the land where the town is located.

• Admission Ticket Free

Approximately 850 feet above sea-level, this spot offers an excellent view of the "Scotland District" which covers the parish of St.Andrew and is named after the Patron Saint of Scotland.

It is believed that the name "Cherry Tree Hill" originated from the large number of cherry trees which once existed at this location.

Today the road is lined with mahogany trees, which were introduced into Barbados after the Treaty of Paris in 1763. As you descend the hill the mahogany trees give way to swaying sugar cane.

Beautiful island tour with rum tour finish
557jeremiahs, 25-05-2022
I took this tour on a Friday. Jamar was there early ready for pickup at the appointment time. It was well planned route and got to see a lot of the island as well as touring four square distillery with tasting. The route we took to tour the island visited North Coast, East Coast, South Coast and a drive along highway 1 back to West Coast where I was staying.

The four square tour was amazing lots of detail and history about the distillery and the impact it had on the island.
Excellent!

We were on a cruise and decided at the last minute on ship to try and find a guide in Barbados to take us around for the day. After contacting several guides, Jamar was the only one who responded promptly and was easy to communicate and coordinate with. Jamar met us at the cruise port entrance in his clean and comfortable vehicle (with great air conditioning!), and took us to every spot we requested that day, including St. Nicholas Abbey, and several we didn't even know about! He made excellent recommendations for lunch and photos, and we finished our day feeling like we really got to see and experience a taste of Barbados during our short time on the island. Would absolutely recommend Jamar and Stoutland to anyone!
