One of Barbados' most popular attractions is Harrison's Cave. This limestone cavern features several streams, as well as stalactites, stalagmites and other kinds of calcite deposits. The cave sits in the middle of the country about 5 miles from Holetown and Bathsheba Beach.

According to recent visitors, Harrison's Cave is a must-see Barbados attraction. While the well-preserved cave receives the most praise, the cave's knowledgable tour guides were also appreciated by past travelers. Some people, however, said the admission rates make this site a bit pricey to visit.

Harrison's Cave offers a variety of tours daily from 8:45 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. The cave's standard tram tour lasts an hour and costs 60 Barbadian dollars (or about $30) for each adult and Bds$30 (roughly $15) per child. Walk-in cave tours are offered on select Saturdays at 3 p.m. Kids tours, one of which focuses on bats, are available as well. To reach the cave, visitors can drive or take the Route No. 4 Shorey Village or Chalky Mount bus, which operate daily at select times. Free on-site parking is available, plus restrooms and a gift shop. For more information, visit Harrison's Cave's website.

#1 Bathsheba Beach

Bathsheba Beach, which sits on Barbados' west coast, is a photographer's and surfer's paradise. For photographers, Bathsheba offers dramatic rock formations and abandoned homes. And for surfers, there's the beach's famous Soup Bowl, where top-notch waves can be found. Named after the area's foamy water, the Soup Bowl is so well-known that international surfing competitions are regularly held here. Do not, however, plan on swimming at Bathsheba. Because of the region's rough waters and rock formations, it is not safe to swim at Bathsheba Beach.

Recent travelers praised Bathsheba Beach's picturesque setting and phenomenal surf. Though many said the beach's rock formations more than justify a visit, Bathsheba Beach is a great spot to fly kites and enjoy a beach picnic as well. Keep in mind, though, that public transportation is limited in this area, so a rental car is recommended.
