Barbados. It doesn’t get any better than this
Words don’t do what we experienced on this day any justice, so on behalf of our Irish trade partners who joined us in Barbados we share one of the most amazing days with amazing people in this piece.
From our home tonight, the Crystal Cove Hotel, to the island’s most iconic natural attraction, Harrison’s Cave ECO Adventure to sailing on the luxurious Seaduced Catamarans for one of our very best experiences ever.
The lucky crew included:
Don Shearer (Travelbiz), Tara Magee (British Airways), Lennon Chandler (Barbados Tourism), Aidan Coughlan (WTC), Sharon Harney (John Cassidy Travel), Alan Sparling (Caribtours ASM Ireland), Deirdre Sweeney (Sunway), Jill McGuire (Tropical Sky), Gerry Duggan (Trailfinders) and Colman Burke (Club Travel).
At the heart of Barbados lies one of its greatest wonders – the magnificent Harrison’s Cave. Located in the central uplands of the island, this crystallized, limestone cave is characterized by flowing streams, deep pools of crystal-clear water and towering columns. Gaze in wonder at the white flow stones and in awe at the beauty of the speleothems which adorn the cave.
In 1981, Harrison’s Cave was officially opened to the public. The Boyce Tunnel, named after equipment operator Noel Boyce who broke ground to open the cave’s natural passageways, leads to the entrance of the cave. Beyond this point, Harrison’s Cave is a massive stream cave system that is at least 2.3 kilometres long. Interior temperature is an average 27 degrees Celsius and its largest cavern, the Great Hall measures 15 metres high. Harrison’s Cave is considered an active cave as it carries water, and it is very much alive as its stalagmites are still growing albeit by less than the thickness of a piece of paper each year; but that’s very fast in geological terms.
Harrison’s Cave is a gem of an experience, so be sure to visit and unearth the adventure!
This is an absolute must when holidaying in Barbados.
