Stalgmites in Harrison's Cave

Harrison's Cave

Written by Julie Greiner

Who would imagine that a Caribbean Island such as Barbados with its lazed back lifestyle, relaxing atmosphere, colorful nightlife and fantastic beaches would also offer to unlock the key to underground formations and the wonder of hidden caverns to explore. Known as one of the "Seven Wonders of Barbados". Harrison's Cave is believed to go as far back in time as the eighteenth century. Ole Sorensen, a renowned speleologist was hired to explore and survey the caves. The area was landscaped, tunnels were dug, lighting and diverting of underground streams all became part of developing the caves into the exciting attraction of today.

Visiting Spelunkers

Electrically operated wagons take the visitors down through the extensive pathways of the caves... showing the magnificent stalagmite formations in all of natures glory. It is truly an awesome Seven Wonder of Barbados. There is a visitors center that is of limestone bedrock blending into the landscape. There are Amerindian artifacts on Spelunking in Harrison's Cave display which have been excavated from around the island.

The reflections of the crystal and rock formations from the lights compares with any other wonder. This is one of the most popular attractions in Barbados. The stalacites and stalagmites were formed over thousands of years and some of them have reached each other and formed fantastic columns. There are crystal clear streams running through the caves that form spectacular waterfalls and pools. The display of colors makes your trip to Barbados all the more worth the while.

Snorkeling through the coral gardens among the vibrant sea life is unsurpassed anywhere else in the Caribbean. And then being able to travel down through the earth to the underground caverns of Harrison's Cave is almost like walking below the ocean's floor. You Snorkeling Coral Reef can also get married in Harrison's Cave if you desire. Harrison's Cave is open every day of the week and the first tour starts at 9:00 a.m. and the last tour is at 4:00 p.m.
