Welchman Hall Gully, Saint Thomas Parish

#2 of 7 in Things to do in Saint Thomas Parish
Garden Nature / Park
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. A visit to Welchman Hall Gully represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Saint Thomas Parish vacation builder to plot your vacation.

  • no monkeys in sight unless you are there at feeding time. would recommend the earlier feed (1030AM) as there will be fewer people and you can get closer. I am impressed that they don't want to hand-fe...  more »
  • We came to see monkeys, and we saw monkeys! Great to get off of the beaten track in Barbados. GPS got my there (admittedly we got very lost leaving but) happy to see the 'less developed' part of Barba...  more »
  • We loved this gully. We only saw three other families and essentially had the place to ourselves. This made it a bit magical, if you will, with the lack of noise pollution, the beauty of the flora and...  more »
  • If you enjoy a sample of the jungle life in Barbados, give this place a try. A walking trail takes you through a preserved section of the jungle with signs and a guide sheet explaining the various flora of the forest. However, the highlight is in the beginning, where you are able to view the Green Monkeys. They are wild and may not be there every time, but at 10am we were there to see them for a feeding. Very fun to watch and take photos. Do not feed them by hand, you may lose said hang. Just a great place to watch nature. The trail is not long. It is a single path in and out, not looped. Oh and hot. And humid. With no breeze, but it's a jungle and that's how they are.
  • Superb botanic park. We arrived late but they let us in and asked to lock the gate on our way out. We were too late to see the monkeys but it was nice seeing all this vegetation around in the middle of no where. Lot's of nice information you can learn a lot. Place is well maintained. I suggest you do not arrive too late.
  • Had a wonderful and educational time with Deborah as our tour guide. You can tell she is passionate about the Bajan ecosystem she cares for. The walking tour lasts about 45 minutes and is leisurely and informative. Lovely drive up to the Gully and a breathtaking view of the ocean from one of the highest points in the island. Affordable fun for a family and worth the drive. Maybe tie it into a trip with Harrison Caves to save time and expense.
  • Maintained and orderly walk through a gully. Short, but good explanation of various native and I troduced plants. Also, monkeys are fed here so there will be some around most of the time.
  • A nice walk through a shaded forest. Takes about an hour and lots of photo opportunities. Not too much wildlife but if you check what time the monkeys are being fed the frenzee is a fun show.
