Harrison's Cave, Barbados

Published on October 8, 2018 by NeilAndOlivia

Harrisons Cave is on everybody's "must see" list and for good reason.

Harrison's Cave is a massive underground cave structure, which stretches over 2km in a network of underground caves first opened to the public in 1981, though there is mention of their existence as far back as 1795.   They rediscovered in the late 1970s by Ole Sorensen and Tony Mason who set about exploring and plotting them extensively.

The temperature in the caves is a cool 27 degrees, regardless of the outside temperature so the perfect spot for some respite from the height of the midday sun.   One main area of the caves is a huge cavern, termed "The Great Hall", measuring over 50 feet (15 m) in height.

The caves are naturally formed by water erosion through the limestone rock.  The calcium-rich water that runs through the caves have formed hundreds of stalactites and stalagmites.

The tour through the caves is done by tram with a tour guide who offers up information on points of interest along the way.  At certain points during the tour visitors are permitted to get off the tram and get close up to the formations.    After the Great Hall the tram stops at "The Village".    At The Village some of the formations have joined together to form columns after thousands of years.    Other areas the tram stops along the tour is "The Chapel," "The Rotunda," and "The Altar." Visitors travel through the Boyce Tunnel via tram to all depths of the cave.

Tours are conducted everyday from 8.45am until 3.45pm and prices start from BDS$30 for children, BDS$60 for adults and lasts an hour.

Meet The Author
Welcome to our home away from home! We are Neil and Olivia and we bought this property after retiring from running a vineyard for 10 years. We have spent the last few years travelling the world (often in a classic car) and fell in love with Barbados the first time we visited. As much as we love to travel, we also like to spend time relaxing with a good bottle of wine and great company. We have furnished Fairways very much with that vibe in mind: somewhere for you to unwind and enjoy your well deserved holiday, but close enough to plenty of restaurants, beaches and "must do's" so you never hear the dreaded "I'm bored". We also know that it is the little touches that really make a holiday, so we are more than happy to help with special requests beyond "can you organise a cot". Getting married and need transport? Have a special dinner to book? Want to have dinner served at home but don't want to cook it? We would love to help with any of those. Please do get in touch
