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.
