Attractions Natural Beauty

In Barbados, nature abounds. And the opportunities to appreciate such treasures are just as plentiful. Our country’s mild, subtropical weather has nourished a fascinating array of flora and fauna, and nurtured lush gardens that are the most varied in the world. And to enjoy it all, one can simply take a hike along an inland trail or down a coastal pathway, laugh at the antics of a mischievous green monkey in a gully or the wildlife reserve, or just unwind in one of the numerous parks created to help sustain the island’s incredible natural beauty.
