Harrison's Cave, Saint Thomas Parish

#1 of 8 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.

  • There are lifts down to the caves and a tram that takes you round the caves, good for the disabled. Impressive views. Knowledgeable staff give a talk about how the caves were formed before the tour. W...  more »
  • It is a well run tour, and the view is spectacular. 160 feet underground, you find lakes, waterfalls, stalagmites and stalactites. Well worth the time and money. I tend to be claustrophobic but the tr...  more »

  • Awesome tour through the cave, hope to go there again sometime. The underground formations and natural springs are stunning beyond being able to capture with a camera. The tour guides are friendly and the staff are kind and helpful. The experience is definitely worthwhile
  • I enjoyed riding the tram through the caves and learning the geological history of Barbados. There was a bit of a wait to go into the caves though. They offer a few different tour types with the tram being the most popular.
  • Great tour through an amazing cave. The elevators down into the canyon are right out of Jurassic Park. I especially liked the visitor center and the underground stream that ran alongside the path. Our guide could have been a bit more enthusiastic. Otherwise everything about the tour, facilities, ground etc is first rate. We shared a taxi from the cruise port. Our driver came back to pick is up after 1.5 hours, enough time for the tour and visitor center. We paid him on the return trip.
  • I have seen many caves in my life but it's always great to explore new ones - especially in foreign countries
  • We took the tram tour and it was great! Beautiful caves and lots of info from the tour guide:)
