We're staying at the Hilton in Bridgetown, which has a small beach, with a much quieter beach around the corner in the bay. Not to mention the beach bars on the bay.

The original Sunbury Plantation House in the parish of St. Philip was built around 1660 by one of the first British settlers on the island and became the the Great House for a plantation that grew to 413 acres. Sunbury Plantation House is open to the public and features one of the best collections of antiques and artifacts in Barbados, including the largest collection of antique carriages in the Caribbean and many items used in the day-to-day operation of the plantation.

Everyone we meet in Barbados is friendly and helpful and we truly experience a lot there in our few days. To end, we must show a tropical display, then move on to another island.
Tropical plants grow everywhere
