Wednesday eve - nice entertainment program, food ok

We took the entertainment package, that harbour lights offers every Wednesday - about 170 Barbadian Dollar per Person (ca 85 USD). Program was really entertaining with a cultural touch. Food was not so much and the best, but also not bad - you can choose between fish, chicken, steak and shrimps... read more

We did the beach Extravaganza with terrific entertainment, a (surprisingly) tasty meal *flying fish included :) and unlimited rum punch and amazing pina coladas! What a Blast!!! Everyone behaved, the sand dance floor was wonderful, the entertainment was varied and very fun and the all inclusive price was reasonable.

This place has become an icon for Babados- Like the boatyard much of their business comes from visitors on cruise ships who come in to see the floor shows along with food and drinks. For locals especially in winter months as well as Festival season (July/August) it becomes a major hotspot. Dress code is very casual. Cheap and cheerful is... More

We booked a beach break excursion from our cruise ship to Harbour Lights. It was just a few minutes ride from where our ship docked and when we arrived we were given a cocktail or soft drink. Our excursion also included the cost of sun beds and an umbrella. The beach is very nice and we enjoyed the morning here.... More

Virtually every tour desk in the country will recommend a night at Harbour Lights. This is a recommendation worth listening to. While not cheap (at BBD175 per person) I thought it was still quite good value for the number of live entertainers on offer. Taxis in Barbados are quite expensive so having pick up (7 pm) and drop off (10:30... More

This is the oldest and most historic place to Party in Barbados. It has an amazing Vibe. If you are looking for fine dining, this is not the place.
