I believe it was Harrison's Cave, did it years ago before they made some improvements. Even back then, it was quite impressive. We did that and then still had time to go to Boatyard Beach, which is very close to the pier.

Harrisons Caves are wonderful! Who knew this girly girl, would love this excursion...You go in on a multi car tram, wearing a hard hat. They make several stops within the cave to the most amazing visuals. Stalectites,and stalagmites everywhere, and, the lighting enhancemants were awesome.

A few years ago, the cave was closed for improvments, so now it's even better. I say...go go go!

I did it many moons ago when we spent a week in Barbados (Sandy Lane....Woo Hoo!) and it was nice, but we had a lot of time.

I didn't even know they improved it, but really it's just a cave excursion, not sure I would spent my limited time doing that when there are so many other unique choices.

Harrison's Cave is beautiful! After being in Barbados twice before, we finally decided on trying the Cave. We actually hired a local driver for the day! He took us around the island a little ( surprising we missed a lot in our past trips here). The Cave itself is very nice, it was not crowed when we arrived. The tram stopped and we were able to get out and walk around in the one part. Perfect picture taking! Sadly we havent returned to Barbados in a few years, so im sure there may be some change to the Cave. But we would happily return, and one day hope to bring future family with us!
