Let’s Explore St. Thomas, Barbados in March

Located in the centre of the island of Barbados, St. Thomas is one of only two landlocked parishes on the island. Affectionally called “The Country” in Barbados, we say you’re officially in the country when you’re in St. Thomas. This parish is especially picturesque and showcases landscapes that range from high hills to gullies and a cave network which are great fun to explore.

The most famous of these caves is the world-renowned Harrison’s Cave, which we consider one of the wonders of the world. The Cave was first mentioned in historical documents in 1795 and we rediscovered in the 1970’s when technology allowed for safe exploration of the network. The Barbados government started development of the Cave as a National attraction soon after and the Cave was opened to the public in 1981. Harrison’s Cave is a must visit on any vacation to Barbados. It features a tram system for exploration which takes you through parts of the massive stream cave system which is at least 2.3km long. Interior temperature averages 27C and the largest cavern, The Great Cavern measures 15M high! This active case still carries water today and its stalagmites are still growing daily.

There are no hotels or guest houses in St. Thomas, so the parish is best explored by hired car to allow you to truly appreciate her beauty. Apart from the stunning landscapes which include views of the clay rich red soil, you may also pass another gem, Welchman Hall Gully. We’ll explore that further in another post.

Whether you’re here for We Gatherin’ Barbados 2020 and visiting for the umpteenth time or staying on the south or west coasts, we encourage you to point your rental car away from the beach and take a gander at the beauty that is St. Thomas.  There’s always an adventure to be had!
