Situated about 4 miles southwest of Bathsheba Beach in St. Joseph parish, Hunte's Gardens offers an array of plants within a gully. The garden is owned by Bajan horticulturist Anthony Hunte, who is known locally for his colorful personality.

While past travelers appreciated the garden's variety of plants and Hunte's wealth of knowledge, visitors said watching animals like hummingbirds, monkeys and the owner's dog made this garden even more enchanting. To make the most of the garden's picturesque setting, some visitors recommend packing a picnic lunch to eat on the property's grounds.

Hunte's Gardens is open daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. An entrance fee of 30 Barbadian dollars ($15) is required per person. All tickets include garden access, snacks and rum punch. Though guided tours are not offered, Hunte is typically available to answer questions about the garden. Bus routes in central Barbados are limited, so traveling to Hunte's Gardens by car is recommended. A small parking lot is available at the attraction, as well as restrooms and a gift shop. For more information, visit the Hunte's Gardens 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.
