About De Heart Uh Barbados

As the name implies, this region is located in the center of the island. This is a lush, fairly rural area full of fascinating geological features and equally fascinating locals. There is a distinct country feel to this region. Life here is even more laid back than in other, busier parts of the island. It's a wonderful place to spend the day exploring and relaxing....

📷 What To Do

Explore Welchman Hall Gully - Take a self-guided walking tour through this ancient gully. This is what pre-British colonized Barbados looked like. Towering trees cool the gully which is bordered by cliffs. A handy booklet helps you identify the many trees, palms, ornamentals, and flowers throughout the gully. Be sure to visit the look-out point for stunning views of the lush countryside, Chalky Mount hills, and eastern coastline.

As you head down the hill from Welchman Hall, look out for the rum shop on the left. Stop in for a drink or to get directions. There's always a lively atmosphere and plenty of friendly chatter.
