Hop into a 4x4 vehicle and depart the pier in convoy, heading first to the parish of St George. Here you will view the renowned Gun Hill Signal Station. As you pass this historical site, look for the statue of a lion carved from a single piece of stone by Captain Henry Wilkinson in 1868.
Proceed to St Joseph and venture into Joe's River Forest. Winding along its tree-lined paths, you'll admire rows of ficus, white woods, cabbage palms, mahogany and bearded fig trees. This tropical rain forest is home to a host of wildlife and covers 85 acres of hills, gullies and plains. At Bathsheba, you will stop briefly to take in the striking vistas, rugged hillsides and pounding surf.
Then, reboard your vehicle for a drive to Cattlewash Hill, where you will enjoy a refreshing beverage as you look out over Barbados' lovely countryside. From here, journey through Barclay's Park -- a 50-acre reserve on the island's east coast. Opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 1966, this park commemorates the island's independence and was a gift from Barclays Bank to the Government of Barbados. Travel past the calm waters of Long Pond and along the trail of Morgan Lewis Hill.
On your way to the beach stop, you will travel through historic Holetown, where the first European settlers landed. Before you return to the pier, take a quick dip in the crystal-clear waters at Brandon's Beach.
