Things to do near Lancaster
Barbados is a popular destination not only for its scenery, but also for the sheer amount of activities on offer that are sure to delight every type of traveler, whether you’re visiting with kids or teenagers, or enjoying a honeymoon with your sweetheart. We recommend a visit to the Folkestone Marine Park & Visitor’s Center for some underwater adventures, the Apes Hill Golf Resort if it's a few games of golf you are after, or the Animal FLower Cave if you’re interested in witnessing one of Barbados’s natural marvels. If you would like a taste of the Barbadian city life, then Holetown, Speightstown and Bridgetown are all wonderful places ripe for exploration.
If it’s the beautiful beaches you want to explore (and with coastline that looks like this, we certainly wouldn’t blame you!), then there are plenty of options in the immediate area, as well as a little further afield. The closest popular beaches include Sandy Lane Beach, Paynes Bay Beach, and Weston Beach. If you’re exploring more of the island, then the south coast is also a great place to find those quintessential Caribbean beaches.
