Friday Fun Facts-Barbados

Barbados is a country I have always wanted to visit namely because of its rich preserved historical past. For whatever reason I’ve never visited although it truly looks to be a stunning island, one that has enchanted visitors for centuries now. 

-At Welchman Hall Gully you can watch native green monkeys being fed as they roam freely including swimming from the canopies of vines and trees there. Welchman Hall Gully also features exotic flora, stalagmites and stalactites that were formed when the caves collapsed to form the gully. It’s considered to be one of the prettiest walks in Barbados.


-Like many of the Caribbean islands, Barbados is home to a large number of rum distilleries including the oldest brand of rum in the world which is Mount Gay. This rum has been made in Barbados since 1703 and visitors to the welcome center are shown the whole rum making process from when molasses is obtained from sugar cane and next to the fermentation and distilling process.

-Bridgetown is the country’s prime spot for exploring its deeply rooted historical past. Nearby is St. Ann’s Garrison which is 308 years old. It features British colonial buildings (Barbados was a colony of Great Britain until 1966), the National Cannon Collection, a horse racing circuit called Garrison Savanah and a restored guard room and clock tower.
