Take a look at the things to do tab on the left of the page, there are loads of ideas on there of what you can do in Barbados.

What sort of thing are you looking for? Activity, museum, sightseeing, beach etc?

Thanks for replying so quickly.

We are not looking for activity or beach as we are over 55 !! So looking for local interest and sightseeing ideas for the day.

There's things like St Nicholas Abbey, the Mount Gay rum tours, the Animal Flower Cave (but some people don't rate it!), the Flower Forest, a few hours at beautiful and peaceful Bathsheba.

Or how about doing the 4x4 Island Safari which is a really good way to see a lot of the island, but it depends on the times you're on the island.

Or perhaps a catarmaran tour to see the turtles and a stroll around Bridgetown?

THanks for those ideas. The rum tour sounds good and a stroll around bridgetown but the turtles are appealing too so know we will find something to do. Thanks again

How about getting a taxi with guide who can take you round the island. There is so much to see on the island, if you have the time it is a shame just to see Bridgetown. I know people who have been on cruises who said they didn't like Barbados but all they did was go into Bridgetown. You can see so much in a few hours to get the feel of Barbados.

There's a few things you could do during your day visit...like visit the Mount Gay rum factory.
