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.

  • This was a good tour for my husband and me to take my mom on with us. It makes for a long day, but it's easy and the caves are well lighted. There is a train ride through most of the caves, so it does...  more »
  • If you have never been in a cave before this might be an interesting experience for you. There is so much to see above the ground in Barbados it is a poor use of time and resources to go down into a d...  more »
  • If you take a taxi here make sure it waits for your return as this is in the middle of nowhere and would be hard to return to your hotel. We took the tram (BDS$60 for an adult). It is about an hour to...  more »

  • 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.
  • The cave was beautiful. The tour guide was knowledgeable. The whole experience was definitely worthwhile. I have been to the cave off and on since I was a boy, and the developments I have seen in the quality of the experience and in the conservation efforts over the last 10 or so years have really impressed me.
  • The cave is a good experience and very orderly on the production side. The tour takes about 45 minutes in total, but the time in the cave is fairly short. There is a short history video prior to the tour, which was fascinating. Overall worth a trip, as long as your expectations aren't terribly high.
  • Plenty of parking. Nice clean tourist attraction. Plenty of toilets which were clean. The cave ride takes about 40 mins which you go in and you have someone at the front telling you all about it. The garden area is very nice with some little huts selling bits and bobs. Great value for money.
  • Very cool! Almost a Disney ride with similar solar powered tram that takes you down to fascinating cave with water dripping from roof occasionally! Surprise to find such an awesome attraction in a surprisingly clean and safe island. Would go back easily!
