This full day lunch inclusive tour starts its day with the monkey feeding at the Barbados Wildlife Reserve after the monkeys have had their mid morning snack and swung through the trees its time for us to make our way to the scenic views of Cherry Tree Hill and Morgan Lewis before stopping for a great Barbadian Lunch with some of our favourites dishes available on the menu for you to enjoy.
Cherry Tree Hill is eight hundred and fifty (850) ft above sea level and is a part of St. Nicholas Abbey plantation. Actually due to the size of the St. Nicholas Abbey property, Cherry Tree Hill actually borders, St.Peter and St. Andrew. Many years ago, the drive on either side to get to it was flanked by cherry trees, thus the reason for its name; however these were replaced with mahogany trees which now line the road. The trees were planted in celebration of the signing of The Treaty of Paris in 1763.
The Morgan Lewis Sugar Mill was built in 1727 it is one of the many Barbadian windmills once used to produce sugar, and one of the two last functioning sugar windmills in the world. The Morgan Lewis Mill ceased grinding sugarcane for commercial purposes in 1947 and was subsequently given to the Barbados National Trust.
After lunch we will make a quick stop in Bathsheba a surfers paradise before we start making our way to the calm waters of Carlisle Bay where you will take a cruise on Tranquility Cruises to swim with the turtles & Snorkel at a shipwreck. End off your day with a splash as you slide down Tranquility's waterslide into the welcoming waters in Carlisle Bay.
Bathsheba is located on the Eastern coastline of Barbados. It is said that this area was named after the wife of King David whose name was “Bathsheba”. Legend has it that she bathed in milk to keep her skin beautiful and soft, and the rolling surf waters of Bathsheba’s “Soup Bowl” resembled Bathsheba’s bath. The area is popular with surfers. It is a popular area for locals and visitors alike and is dotted with several seaside cottages.
The Main Guard is the central point of the Garrisons and looks out on what was once the Parade Ground and now the race track. This structure was erected in 1804 and was used among other things as a court martial with the prisoners being housed in a guard house which is now the Barbados Museum The coat of arms is the George the III Coat of Arms. It is made of Coad Stone, that is not a stone but a ceramic made to resemble stone. The Formula was invented by a Mrs Elanor Coade in 1779 and its foremost property is its durability. The Coat of arms is dated 1803 and faces directly into the prevailing weather and has withstood 3 major hurricanes.
Carlisle Bay is named after the Earl of Carlisle who stole Barbados away from Sir William Courteen in the Great Barbados Robbery. Today Carlisle Bay has the whitest sand in Barbados & the most brilliant turquoise sea. The Carlisle Bay Marine Park has 6 shipwrecks in close proximity.
