5 Things To Do In Bridgetown For Cruisers

Bridgetown Walking Tour doorstep attraction (easy walk or less than 5mile-8km taxi/bus ride from port) Bridgetown Walking Tour A short Walking Tour of Bridgetown is a great way to get to know the city. One possible route would be to walk along the boardwalk by the Careenage (next to Wharf Road), then check out National Heroes Square with a statue of Nelson at its center and Parliament behind, then onto St Michaels Cathedral built in 1784, next a stroll through Queens Park with its enormous Boabab tree, returning by the historic Chamberlain Bridge to finish with a well deserved rest at the famous Waterfront Café. Bridgetown is a 20 minute walk (or short taxi drive) from the cruise port.

Carlisle Bay doorstep attraction (easy walk or less than 5mile-8km taxi/bus ride from port) Carlisle Bay A short walk south along the coast from Bridgetown brings you to the wide expanse of Carlisle Bay. If you like snorkeling, there's a real treat in store. Stroll along the beach until you reach the octagonal bandstand. Then swim directly out from shore, for about 150yds, where you'll find the best snorkeling site in Barbados - a series of five sunken wrecks (of which two are easily accessible to snorkelers). Also of help when ascertaining the position of the wrecks are the lifeguards (who sit in the hut in the picture above). They will happily point you in the right direction.

Brighton Beach doorstep attraction (easy walk or less than 5mile-8km taxi/bus ride from port) Brighton Beach Barbados is blessed with more than its fair share of wonderful beaches, from quintessential Caribbean beaches on the south and west coasts, to wild windswept surfers' beaches on the eastern side of the island. Just a mile north of Bridgetown cruise port lies Fresh Water Bay, with a beautiful threesome of beaches, Paradise Beach, Brandon's Beach, and - the best of the three - Brighton Beach.

Mount Gay Rum Distillery doorstep attraction (easy walk or less than 5mile-8km taxi/bus ride from port) Mount Gay Rum Distillery As you wander back to the cruise port from Brighton Beach, you will pass the famous Mount Gay Rum Distillery. If you'd like to know about the origins of the rum, why not call in for a tour and tasting.

Sunbury Plantation House Sunbury Plantation House Sunbury plantation was started in around 1660, and was a large sugar plantation worked by slaves. Sunbury Plantation House makes a fascinating excursion, with rooms furnished in period style, many old paintings, original shopping lists, and a collection of horse carriages. Sunbury is over towards the west side of the island, near the town of Bathsheba, about 15 miles from Bridgetown cruise port.
