Harrison's Cave Tours

Harrison’s Cave, an underground cavern located in the central uplands of Barbados, is a 1.4-mile (2.3-kilometer) natural wonder chock-full of stalactites, stalagmites, cascading waterfalls, and natural passages. It’s one of the island’s top attractions, and rightly so—it’s an unparalleled underground experience.

The Basics
A cave tour takes visitors on a tram ride underground to explore the cavern’s pools and waterfalls, with a tour guide providing geological insights. The tram tour allows travelers to easily explore the massive underground cave, winding past clear streams and breathtaking cave formations for a closer look at the stalactites, stalagmites, and the 49-foot (15-meter) Great Hall.

Aside from the basic cave tram tour, eco-adventure tours and walk-in cave tours take adventurous travelers deeper into the cave—sometimes on hands and knees!—to explore further. Harrison’s Cave tours typically depart from nearby Bridgetown, and frequently combine a stop there with other nearby attractions such as Bathsheba, Hunte’s Gardens, or Welchman Hall.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Harrison’s Cave is a must-see for nature enthusiasts and kids.
  • Bring a hat to catch the overhead drips, and wear comfortable shoes for walking.
  • Eco-adventure tours provide headlamps, helmets, and knee pads.
  • The basic cave tram tour is accessible to wheelchair users and and suitable for those with mobility challenges.
  • The visitor center offers refreshments and a gift shop.

How to Get There
Located adjacent to the community of Allen View in St. Thomas Parish, Harrison’s Cave is easily accessible via car, taxi, or bus. Catch the Route 4 Shorey Village Bus from Bridgetown, or grab a taxi from Bridgetown (30 minutes), Holetown (20 minutes), or Warrens (20 minutes). Parking is available on site. 

When to Get There
Harrison’s Cave is open for tram tours from 8:45am to 3:45pm daily except for Good Friday, Easter Sunday, Kadooment Day (first Monday in August), and Christmas. 

History of Harrison’s Cave
Thomas Harrison owned the land where the cave resides in the early 1700s, but it is unclear whether he ever entered the cave that bears his name. Early explorers had a tough time finding a breach in the well-hidden entrances, and it wasn’t until the 1970s that the cave was excavated and opened as a tourist attraction. Considered an “active” cave, the stalactites and stalagmites are still growing every year.
