Ready! Set! Go! Get a window seat because the best scenic views are coming. Designed for those who want to do a lot but have little time, the 360 Degree tour takes us on a trip around entire island. Visit Oistins, once a major seaport and home to one of the best open-air parties and fish fries. Bridgetown, is a city full of history and at its core, our designated UNESCO World Heritage site. For those architectural buffs Bridgetown holds some gems, including the Barbados’ Parliament Buildings which dates back to the late 1800s and The Nidhe Israel Synagogue & Museum, built in 1654 and one of the oldest Synagogues in the Western Hemisphere.
Some of Barbados’ best beaches will always be in sight as we travel along the south and west coast. For such a small island, Barbados has many beaches with pristine wide stretches of powdery sands, softly lapped by turquoise waters. Totally irresistible! On the island’s West Coast or Platinum Coast as it’s affectionately known, we come to Holetown, the landing site of the first British settlers in 1627 and Barbados’ only town until 1629. The oldest parcel of consecrated ground is there at the site of the St James Parish Church. This church boasts the original bell from 1696 and, in the baptistry, the original font still stands after more than 300 years.
The tour also takes us inland as we climb to heights of 850 feet above sea level to Cherry Tree Hill. Here is a great place for photos, with the panoramic view of the rugged Scotland District as the ideal background setting. Our journey gives us a close-up view of the rugged East coast where roaring waves roll off the Atlantic, relentlessly pounding the shore, carving out natural pools in the coral and leaving stranded boulders strewn in the shallows. Along this coast we will stop at a local watering hole for lunch, which comes with one (1) complimentary drink.
But wait! That’s not all. The visit to St. John’s Parish church is intriguing. Though not as old as St. James’ Parish Church, it’s gothic inspired architecture, intricately carved staircases and elaborately crafted pulpit are not to be missed. Its serene graveyard has a magnificent panoramic view from Pico Tenerife in the North to ragged Point in the East. The graveyard is also perfect for grave spotting. Look out for the tomb of Ferdinando Paleologus, a descendant of Emperor Constantine the Great.
