Harrison's Cave, Saint Thomas Parish

(4.3/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • If you've never been to another large room cave, you'll enjoy this. It pretty much offers the same features as any other cave, and this was less impressive than many we've been to. The stalactites and...  more »

  • Nice exhibit showing the formation of Barbados and the Caves. Nice video showing the same in a separate theatre room. Main gift shop as you enter the facility and more down on the gully floor near the entrance to the Caves. The guides are well educated and throw in some humour as well. The Caves themselves are amazing with many beautiful photo opportunities. We just did the tram tour which is great as a guided tour. They let you off a couple of times to take more close up pictures. They stop and start several times as well for quick photo ops and they make sure that both the front and back of the trams get to stop and see everything. Definitely a must see.
  • This was a disappointing tour. While the cave formations are initially impressive, its appeal very quickly died down becuase the guide spoke in monotone and didn't try to make the trip interesting in the least. Barbados is beautiful with many other tours that are actually worth the money.
  • The cruise was honeymoon trip. And my husband and I decide to go to this amazing experience in Barbados. We never expected that. If you love some extreme experience , that is a good option. Walk, crawl, swim, watched your butt, the dark pipe with water was great. You have to be in some shape because the exercise can make you short of breath. Also, I discover thet I'm a litlle claustrophobic. But I can do it again. The guides, Jason and Shaun were great.
  • 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!
