The probably most effective and most enjoyable way to proceed is to take your rental car and just drive around and enjoy the constantly changing scenery.
Start going east from Inchcape, go past the airport and make Crane Beach your first stop. Visit Foul Bay right next to Crane, go and see the beach of Sam Lords Castle and a stop at Bottom Bay is a must. This picturesque beach will remain a highlight in your memories of your trip to Barbados.
Keep cruising east via Ragged Point and go north from there, find your way into Skeete's Bay, Consett Bay, drive up the cliff to St. John's Church, come down again and visit Martin's Bay, keep going north and stop in one of the most scenic places you might have ever seen - Bathsheba about half way up on Barbados' East Coast.
Going further north you will travelling along the East Coast Road which winds along the water for quite a few miles. Through Belleplaine you approach the climb over the rigge which splits east from west. You can go different ways, but no matter which climb you choose, the one over Cherry Tree Hill, the new road up to the Wild Life Reserve or the road up to Apehill, an abundance of breathtaking views will pop up all along your way.
Then go down to Speightstown or go even further up to the North point and finally stop for a sundowner on Barbados' West Coast on your way home to the south and Inchcape.
By the way, don't do it all in one day...
Boat trip on along Barbados' west coast
We can arrange for you to be taken on a very private boat trip on a catamaran along Barbados' magnificent west coast. Here you can bring your own food and drinks aboard and anchor off one of the many west coast beaches where you can swim with the turtles, snorkel, ride a jetski and / or waterski or just relax aboard and enjoy the tropical scenery.
Other things we recommend to do while in Barbados are:
- A visit to Harrison's cave
- A submarine trip - make sure it's a sunny and calm day on the water
- Visit the Barbados Museum
- To see Batsheba is a must - have lunch either at the "Edgewater Hotel" or "The Round House" in Bathsheba and enjoy watching surfers ripping the waves in the powerful sufbreak of Soupbowl.
- Stop at the Waterfront Cafe when in town
- Go and swim with the turtles near the Lone Star Motel
- Enjoy the huzzle and bustle at Oistins Fishmarket's fish grill action on Friday evening and while beeing there don't miss out to see the locals dance to music of the 50's and 60's at "Lexie's"
Further more the management of Inchcape gladly assist you with any more hints you might need to make your stay with us one of the unforgettable holidays of your life.
And for those of you who want explore the Caribbean beyond our shores, we recommend a trip to the Grenadines, an island chain within the Caribbean Sea, uncluttered by tourist exploitation; white sand beaches on deserted islands, sky-blue water gently lapping the shore and hardly a soul around.
You will be picked up from Inchcape at 7,15 am for your transfer to the airprot. A brief flight takes you to Union Island at 8,30 am. A light continental breakfast is served before setting sail to stunning Salt Whistle Bay on the island of Mayreau. Then it’s over to the breathtaking Tobago Cays ~ a marine reserve made up of five deserted islands, excellent for swimming, snorkelling with the turtles or simply relaxing at the water's edge. Enjoy a freshly prepared buffet lunch with wine served on board. A short stop is made at the deserted isle of Petit Tabac or Palm Island in the evening before, returning to Union Island for your flight back around 5,30 pm.
