Harrison’s Cave, Barbados

Harrison's Cave in Barbados

An intricate cave that comes alive with the sights and sounds of rushing waters leading to sparkling still pools below, Harrison’s Cave is expertly crafted by nature. This magical limestone cavern remains active as a living landmark with a spirit of mystery and adventure, and can be found at ‘de heart uh Barbados,’ local terminology meaning the heart of Barbados.

As you tour the cave, it’s easy to imagine the suspenseful navigation efforts of past explorers as they found hidden pathways and incredible formations at every turn. The picturesque scene that sits before you during your tour of Harrison’s Cave is undeniably awe-inspiring, but don’t forget to look up. While gazing at the ceilings of the cave, stalactites hang from at least 50 feet high in some areas!

Mostly unexplored after its discovery in 1970, it wasn’t until 1981 that the caves were open to the general public. Named after property owner Thomas Harrison, tour guides now lead visitors on an unforgettable journey through the caverns while sharing the inner workings and the history of Harrison’s Cave.
