Located in the central parish of St. Thomas, Highland sits as the 3rd highest point on the island and offers stunning views of the lush countryside towards the eastern coastline.

From this vantage point, you'll enjoy refreshing island breezes as you overlook a natural valley and gully. Magnificent towering palms sway in the breeze framing your unobstructed view of the valley. Your view extends to the ruggedly beautiful eastern coastline where the Atlantic Ocean kisses our island shores.

To your left is Mount Hillaby which at 1,115 ft. or 343m, is the highest point in Barbados. In the distance is Chalky Mount, the 2nd highest spot on the island.

Grab a rum punch, beer, soda, or fruit juice from the Highlands Bar along with a light snack to enjoy on the picnic benches as you take in the natural beauty all around. Travelling with children? They'll have a fun time on the swings in the small play park.
