This is our only intact sugar mill in Barbados
Morgan Lewis Windmill is located in the northern parish of St. Andrew overlooking the eastern coastline of the island and the Scotland District.
Morgan Lewis is one of the only two intact and restored sugar mills in the Caribbean. The other is at Betty's Hope Estate on one of our sister islands, Antigua.
Stroll the beautifully landscaped grounds for a 360° view of the historic mill. You can also choose to explore the interior of the mill on either a guided or self-guided tour.
The Grind Artisan Cafe, located next to the windmill, offers stunning views of the scenic east coast and lush countryside.
Enjoy refreshing cold and hot drinks, as well as a wonderful selection of sweet and savory options including sandwiches, quiche, and cakes.
Two magnificent BAOBAB TREES (Adansonia digitata) with possibly the widest tree-trunks to be found in the Caribbean grow in Barbados!
The largest can be seen in our Queen's Park in Bridgetown. To give an example of the size of this tree of great distinction, it takes 15 adults joining with outstretched arms to cover its circumference.
This tree is estimated as being over one thousand years old! It is thought that a seed floated from Ginea, West Africa across the Atlantic Ocean to the shores of Barbados and eventually grew into this magnificent tree.
The other grand specimen can be found in Warrens in the parish of St.Michael.
There is small park with colourful benches tiled with pottery, surrounding the tree.
The Boabab tree at Warrens is over 300 years old.
Fodor's travel guide says of Barbados...
"Golfers can choose from among some of the best championship courses in the Caribbean".
Indeed, the sunny weather all year round makes Barbados an ideal location for golf and the perfect vacation spot for golfers and "would-be" golfers! The glorious weather conditions are complemented by world-class golf courses and facilities. Most local golf clubs offer professional instruction.
Barbados is increasingly being regarded as one of the top islands for a Caribbean golf vacation. Several hotels and resorts now provide special golf packages.
Several golf tournaments are hosted throughout the year, attracting participants from a number of countries including Europe and North America. In December 2006 Barbados hosted the World Golf Championships World Cup. The four-day tournament was held at the Sandy Lane Country Club course on the west coast of the island.
In October 2004, perhaps the world's most famous golfer - Tiger Woods - chose Barbados as the venue for his wedding. The ceremony took place at the Sandy Lane Golf Course.
St.Nicholas Abbey, located in the parish of St.Peter, was built in 1658 and is one of only three genuine Jacobean mansions in the Western Hemisphere.
Barbados is home to two of these mansions ... St.Nicholas Abbey and Drax Hall.
Distinguishing features of this magnificent, well-preserved mansion are: curved Dutch gables, chimney stacks and coral stone finials, a Chinese Chippendale staircase and fine antiques and china. A rare 1930s film of sugar plantation life can also be viewed.

Be sure to stop by the salmon-coloured cockatoos - Baby and Lance. Baby in particular likes to chat and be petted.
