More of beautiful Barbados

From lovely Miami Beach in the south to the wild east coast of Bathsheba and further afield, there’s so much to see in Barbados.

Miami Beach is one of the top swimming (and sunning) beaches in Barbados. The water is warm and gorgeous to look at. There’s a food truck called Mr. Delicious that makes good rum drinks and very good rotis for lunch.

They’ve discovered old tunnels in central Barbados, part of British military fortifications from some 200 years ago. They’re slated to open to the public soon for tours. Well worth it!

Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk is part-owner of Bert’s Bar in southern Barbados, where Hockey Night in Canada and Senators’ games are a televison staple.

The regular Friday night fish fry in Oistin’s is tremendous fun, with great food,music and shopping. I had truly a monster piece of fish marinated in lime and spices, plus two sides, for about $15 Cdn.

Located in the scenic Bathsheba area on the east coast, the Round House is a fun restaurant where they make a good breakfast. The views are to die for, and they also feature jazz nights.

The Morgan Lewis windmill is said to be one of the few, if not the only, working windmill left in the Caribbean.

This old outhouse at the Morgan Lewis windmill might be the most scenic toilet on the island. I couldn’t resist having a friend take a photo.

The views of the east coast of Barbados are outstanding from up around Cherry Tree Hill. It’s definitely worth renting a car and exploring this gorgeous island on your own.

The so-called Animal Flower Cave is short on animals and flowers, but it’s a fun place to explore rock formations and muck around in watery caves. There’s good swimming, too. But watch your step.

A visit to the house where first U.S. President George Washington stayed during a trip to Barbados is highly educational. You’ll also find disturbing displays on the slave trade.

St. John’s Parish Church is one of the top architectural sights in Barbados, with a lovely, atmospheric exterior and an extensive cemetery.
