Harrison's Cave, Saint Thomas Parish

4.3
#1 of 9 in Nature in Barbados
Venture into an ancient subterranean limestone cavern at Harrison's Cave. Officially only explored in 1970, it has been developed into a tourist-friendly site, with lighting and trails throughout. Witness bizarre rock formations sculpted over millennia by unseen forces, as you walk under hanging stalactites and around protruding stalagmites. Wander past brightly hued pools, and take a tram to the lowest point of the caves to witness a majestic, buried waterfall.

  • Really cool cave tour. Tram ride through was a great way to see the caves in a clean easy ride car. Friendly, knowledgeable staff with quick movie 🎥 to start the tour and a well stocked gift shop to end. A must see if your able. Well done guys.
  • We did the cave tour on our recent trip to Barbados. The caves are very cool to see, and with the tram it's a very easy tour. They stop a few times to let everyone get out, take pictures and touch the water flowing through the caves. Our tour guide was excellent - a lot of personality and very fun!
  • Amazing experience!! Not just a cave tour but a geological, historic insight on how the whole island of Barbados was formed. Gives you a greater insight on the amazing coral rocks that form this truly magical island. The guides were very knowledgeable and passionate too!
  • Tour guides were very nice, but their accents made it difficult to understand what they were saying. But you get the general idea that there are stalactites and stalagmites and active straws dripping from the ceiling. You ride in an electric open bus. It stops at 3 or 4 bigger rooms in the cave. They have dug through hard rock in areas where the cave was too small or had no access to get to and have made it accessible for anyone to get to. The cave is very different in that it is very wet and very humid and warmer than other caves. Lots of water running in the cave and you see several water pools. Interesting history and formation of the cave and surounding area.
  • Nice tram ride through a historic cave. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Customer service needs some work. We contacted them via email to reserve or tour. They confirmed a slot available. We requested to book the slot but then never heard back. We contacted them 4 additional times to confirm. No response.
