BARBADOS - Parish of St. Joseph - tour
many folk, including many locals, this rugged eastern terrain is their
favourite part of Barbados, although the coastline offers the most spectacular
scenery, St. Joseph has some fascinating areas well worth a visit.
just south of Highway 2 you will find the Flower Forest. Set in a nature
trail, with some lovely vistas of the east coast along the way, this
privately owned and operated, Flower Forest offers up some stunning
flora in a natural setting that feels like the roof garden of Barbados.
Numerous indigenous and imported plants and trees are all correctly
labelled with their Latin and English name as well as country of origin.
Well worth a treck for the fabulous views across the craggy, eroded hills of the Scotland District, named, by the original home-sick Scots, after their much loved land of Robbie Burns.
This is a quiet, peaceful spot to enjoy the views from Pico Teneriffe in the north to Ragged Point in the east. It is a delight to watch the swirling swifts paraglide the warm air currents.
THE BARBADOS-based Caribbean
Regional Environmental Programme (CREP) is now set to launch two phases of
a million-dollar project involving 13 CARICOM states.
Now run by the Barbados National Trust, this property boasts a stunning orchid collection, as well as shrubs, ferns,succulents and many other flowering plants, including a spectacular ancient bearded fig tree from which Barbados, (beared in Spanish), gets its name!
Local botanists offer free guided tours of the gardens every Wednesday at 10.30 am, and bearing in mind some visitors consider this spot one of the most attractive on the island its well worth marking this one in your diary.
From here a short drive takes you to the spectacular East Coast of Barbados
