BARBADOS - Parish of St. Joseph - tour

East coast of Barbados popular with surfersFor 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.

 

    FLOWER FOREST

    Flowe Forest on the east coast of Barbados Signposted 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.
    Trees like the Barbados cherry and the African baobab can be seen. There is a fine collection of orchids, and heliconias. Plenty of shade is provided by the numerous palms and this is a good spot to while away a few hours.

    HACKLETON'S CLIFF AND SCOTLAND DISTRICT

    This steep 300 metre limestone escarpment marks the edge of the Scotland district to the west in St. Joseph and to the east, in St. John, the rugged limestone cap was eroded by the sea many centuries ago.
    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.

    ANDROMEDA BOTANIC GARDENS

     

    Andromeda Created as a private garden, on an Atlantic hillside, in the mid 1950s, this five acre haven perched on a cliff overlooking the east coast has grown to become one of the most acclaimed botanic gardens in the region, created by local botanist Iris Bannochie in 1954, she has created a garden which is a perennial source of delight.
    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
