If you are interested in a bird’s eye view of the wonderful south-east side of the island, then Gun Hill Signal Station in St. George must be on your list of attractions when you visit the island. The aged but wonderfully restored and maintained bastion of British Military communications in colonial times sits on an elevated ridge allowing it to have unhindered views of the island. From this vantage point, you can see the south, east and parts of the west of the island. Built in 1818, the Gun Hill Signal Station was one of six stations used mainly to signal the approach of enemy ships and to glimpse any early signs of slave uprisings on the plantations. The signal station sits on a beautifully landscaped parcel of land where the Pride of Barbados flowers dominate the fauna with their splendour.

With lovely views of the St. George Valley, you can join the many Barbadians and visitors to the island, who make their way down to get farm-fresh produce and a wide selection of gourmet delights. Get there early to enjoy first come first served breakfast which includes delicious pastries, coffee and tea. The Brighton Farmers’ Market is a lively bright way to start your Saturday adventures.

ABOUT THE AREA
Barbados is well known for its beaches, nightlife and other activities that make it the ideal getaway. But there is also much to do for visitors who wish to plan an exciting family vacation. In the southernmost parish of Christ Church, numerous attractions are perfect for those families who want to simply experience the island life together.
The Barbados Golf Club – Sporting enthusiasts can enjoy a trip to the Barbados Golf Club. This 18-hole course is situated on a lush, tropical landscape complete with two lakes that add to the fun of the game. If you’ve never played before and are interested in taking lessons, there are qualified professional golfers on-site who are ready to coach all ages and abilities (group coaching for families is also available on request). After your game, you can head over to their restaurant for a delightful pizza or take a casual walk around the greens to enjoy the stunning beauty of the course.
The Garrison Savannah – If you are more of a horse racing fan, Saturday afternoons at the historic Garrison Savannah will have all the action you need. The home of local horse racing since 1845, race days at the Garrison are occasions for family entertainment, with play parks for children and many local foods and drinks on sale. For families who are interested in heritage, the racetrack is a part of Historic Bridgetown and its Garrison which is a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site. There are also other heritage attractions in walking distance from the Garrison Savannah, including the Barbados Museum and Historical Society, George Washington House, St Ann’s Fort and the National Armoury Museum which houses the largest collection of 17th century English iron cannon and other military artefacts.
Richard Haynes Boardwalk – Just a few minutes away from the Garrison Savannah, visitors can take a relaxing stroll along the Richard Haynes Boardwalk. Stretching along a portion of the island’s south coast, the Boardwalk is a popular location for residents and visitors alike, whether for jogging, socialising at any of the several eating spots scattered along the route, or for a tranquil evening spent watching the glorious sunsets. With beautiful beaches along the entirety of the Boardwalk, children can enjoy themselves building sandcastles or collecting the shells by the shoreline. You can also find family-friendly activities such as live music and yoga classes, and you may even be able to join some of the locals who are fishing at various points on the Boardwalk.
The South Point Lighthouse – When you look towards the east from the Boardwalk, you can see a towering red and white structure in the distance. That is the South Point Lighthouse. This majestic landmark is featured on the island’s five-cent coin and its original construction dates back to the 19th century. A spectacular 89 feet tall, the structure is made of cast iron and is the first lighthouse to be erected in Barbados. The tower was recently refurbished but is not open to the public. However, its grounds have been accessible to visitors since the renovation in 2018. At night, you might be fortunate enough to see its beam rotating and illuminating the darkness over the ocean.
