Welchman Hall Gully, Saint Thomas Parish

See Barbados as the first settlers did when you visit Welchman Hall Gully. A hike along the trail of the gully delivers you through lush rainforests and allows for up-close views of the wide variety of plants, including grapefruit trees. The forest is home to a large number of wild monkeys, which you can better observe from the feeding platform. Remember to only feed the animals things the attraction deems acceptable. Also, be aware that the site only accepts cash; make sure to take enough money with you. By using our Melvin Hill trip planner, you can arrange your visit to Welchman Hall Gully and other attractions in Melvin Hill.

  • My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our time at Welchman Hall Gully. We were thrilled to see the green monkeys up close without supporting people who trap them for personal gain and then discard them.....  more »

  • Very nice. Real wild nature... The monkeys are free and you can see them all over the park. This place also tries to take care of this species as the monkeys are not protected in Barbados.
  • If you are looking for a cool place to explore. Here it is. Come through and see for yourself and you can get food too!
  • We visited on Sunday and were the only ones at the park. It was surprising, since the place is very beautiful. At the entrance to the park there are stairs to a view point — do not miss! After this we walks to Flower Forest and spotted a family of monkeys crossing the road. However, if you visit the park outside of monkey feeding times, you will unlikely see them.
  • Lovely walk through trees with information given, they are working to conserve indigenous species, monkey feeding and chickens and tortoise for the children with play area
  • Beautiful!! A very unique place with a very native ecosystem. The monkeys are fantastic to see and be around. Jonathan the guide is so full of wonderful information about the geography and biodiversity on the island as well as in the gully. This is somewhere you can go if it's rain or shine because of the uniqueness of the area (I don't want to spoil the tour as to why).
