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.

  • Enjoyed the walk through this gully. It’s shady but humid. Unfortunately we didn’t see the monkey feeding, but did see a few monkeys in some of the trees. Pamphlet identifies all the plants.  more »
  • The most beautiful natural park which we visited in Barbados. A nice walk in a beautiful forest, on a concrete path that crosses it. Many plants explained very well from the brochure that will give you at the entrance. When we went it was pouring but the vegetation made from natural umbrella. Just a pity that we did not see the monkeys. Worth a visit, which is also the least expensive nature park we visited (2 adults and one child $60 euro-25 against barbados-about 75 other..)

  • On our fist visit over a decade ago, you could enter at one end and exit at the other - our taxi dropped us off and met us at the other end. It's more organised now with entry and exit at the same end...  more »

  • Definitely worth a visit if you are in Barbados! Although it would be nice to get the description about the plants in other languages than English
  • 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.
  • Beautiful place. There are steps that take you to a wonderful look out and there are many animals and plants to take in the beauty of.
  • Value for your money. Worth visiting. Relaxing trek through a gully.
  • If you are looking for a break from the sun and want to explore some of Barbados' natural beautify and history, this is a good option for you. You'll also see monkeys (usually 10:00 AM - 12:00 Noon or so).
