Pretty views but nothing as beautiful as the carribean side of the island. Unusual rocks that look like mushrooms. A lovely drive to get there although signposts are laughable

No words can describe the beauty of this location. We have to hope that the people of Barbados are able to stop any future development so it remains this way for future generations. Added bonus you may get to see some talented surfers!
