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.

  • Ride with a lot of convenience and accessibility. You visit the cave in a train, is very quiet. A type of scenario with the help of special lighting on special points of the cave that leaves the interesting place, but contrived. Worth a visit, as the cave is unique by the geological feature of the island of Barbados which is different from all other of the Caribbean. I just thought the employees of attraction well by others.

  • Harrisons Cave is a very well organised experience. The introductory video is extremely informative and the solar powered train makes seeing the kilometre long trip underground comfortable and smooth ...  read more »
  • This is number one on the tourist stops for Barbados for a reason. Very well-organized and informative. It is super fun to go underground and see it all for yourself. 
  • I visited Harrison Cave today it was breath taking to see the inside one of the wonders on this earth. I had a wonderful time the staff was excellent, and I would highly recommend it has a must see while in Barbados. I enjoyed the bus to the cave as well.
  • We went here with high hopes of a good experience even though we are used to the usual hyped or fake review disappointments. Well not here! This is one, if not the main attraction on the whole island. Very professional, slickly organised and quite an adventure! Absolutely loved the whole experience which was educational and enjoyable. I know it was a bit expensive but worth it actually. Shame there wasn't a small cafe on-site as no-one sells food other than overpriced ice cream in the gift shop but lovely toilets and friendly staff and guides made the hour or so very pleasant. Lots of tour choices for the lazy like us a tram tour or a proper guided crawl through some of the caves on hand and feet for the adventurous! Thoroughly recommended! We went to Harrison's cave and did the team tour. Pretty wild pla e and lots of presentation thanks to the Barbadian government. The real draw is the Eco tour, a 3 hour hiking excursion underground through rivers and shimmying in tunnels - I can't wait! This is an adventure not to be missed! Have traveled many places, walked numerous caves, all with a degree of awe, however, never before experienced being driven into and through caverns. Moreover, the inconsistent lighting and power outages while driving through is an exciting experience, although random; we happened to get lucky with the generator malfunctioning making the drive through extremely fun...better than Disney! This is an unusual trek into a cave that should not be missed and should not be walked, unless the desire is to adventure within with a vigorous "hiking" tour that is offered, which needs advance booking and some preparation. This is definitely worth a visit. For those that enjoy the marvels of nature this is the place for you. Amazing underground world of incredible beauty. Great rainy day activity. Also saw monkees in trees around visitor center. The tram ride was informative but the guide and driver both seemed a bit cranky and I believe the tour could have improved with a more light hearted guide. Taxi here from Crane resort was expensive round trip and almost 50 minutes away. Worth it if nature is your thing!
  • Absolutely stunning, did the 1 hour tram tour with a guide named Peter. He had us all laughing throughout while telling us some really interesting history/geology. The area surrounding caves is beautiful as well. Worth the money to see such fantastically preserved natural beauty.
  • One of my favorite parts of the time I've spent here in Barbados. The tram will take you down into the depths of the cave, but there are a few places where the group will leave it to explore a bit in the most marvelous parts of the cave. There are many opportunities to get great pictures, so make sure to bring your camera! A bit pricey, but worth it in my opinion.
  • Totally amazing and the tour guide made the journey very comfortable truly worth visiting.
