If you like nature, hiking (at any level), plants, culture and natural history, then Welchman Hall gully must not be missed.
The tranquil feel of the gully will instantly strike you. It is a place where you can experience a piece of nature and imagine what the island was like 300 years ago. It is a touch of tropical forest, mixed with Barbadian and other exotic tropical plants.
Since Barbados does not have many remaining tropical landscapes that are easily accessible, visiting Welchman Hall Gully will be an unexpected surprise and treat.
The tour is self-guided and takes about 30 to 45 minutes to walk.
