It's almost ironic how upon entering you are greeted by a sign telling you it's a litter-free-zone, to only see the ground around the sign covered with litter. There was a group of school children throwing around on the ground empty plastic bottles and snack...More

The forest is fantastic for an educational insight into the trees and plants and agriculture that occurs on the island. A trail through the forest with an optional visit to the cave is worth doing as peaceful and calming break away for the sun. The...More

Adjacent to the Barbados Wildlife Reserve, you can access both for a combined fee. If you have never been through the latter, it is worthwhile, but if you want to see the Barbados green monkey and not just tortoises, caiman alligators, capybara, caged reptiles and...More

If you visit the wildlife reserve you might like to climb up the signal station and listen to the 6 minutes recording. The views from up there are worth it but a special trip to the signal station alone isn't.

We stopped in the area to visit the Barbados Wildlife Reserve but could not skip the Forest hike. The hike through the Mahogany forest is serene and wild. Quiet, remote and alone, that is how it felt. We did pass a few other guests, but...More

Adjacent to the Barbados Wildlife Reserve. One ticket gets entrance to both areas at 23.50BD. Walk up through the forest then climb the stairs to the top of the Signal Station for a great view over the island.

The signal station itself is not that interesting as buildings go, but the view over to the coast from the top floor is good. The forest itself is actually much more enjoyable than the signal station, especially on a hot, sunburnt day, walking through leafy...More

We all loved this place (as much as the wildlife reserve!) the forest is so peaceful and my boys loved reading all the lift the flap questions and really learnt a lot. The paths are gorgeous and well maintained (would be hard with younger kids/buggy)...More

Be careful visiting late in the day... I went an hour before closing time and the staff closed early despite knowing I was in there and so I got locked in and had to climb over the fence to get out! From what I remember you... More
