Barbados has long been called Land of the Flying Fish, not just because the waters around the island teem with flying fish, but because it’s also the national dish. From its UNESCO World Heritage capital to its hauntingly beautiful eastern coastline to its rich cultural ambiance, Barbados is a beautiful vacation destination. Certain attractions may be temporarily closed or require advance reservations. Hours/availability may have changed.

A significant part of Barbados cultural history, Andromeda Gardens is the legacy of renowned Barbados horticulturalist Iris Bannochi, who established the garden in Foster Hall. The garden is named after the mythological Greek princess Andromeda, because its beauty is seemingly “chained” to the coral stone of the eastern coast. During her lifetime, Bannochi won numerous awards for the bounty displayed in her garden. Visitors will discover a unique collection of tropical and sub-tropical plants across 6 acres of gardens. Entrance fees provide unlimited visits for the three weeks following ticket purchase to allow guests time to freely explore and study the gardens.

Emancipation Statue (Bussa)

The Emancipation Statue is an iconic Barbadian landmark created by Karl Broodhagen, Barbados’ most prominent and well-known sculptor. It symbolizes the “breaking of the chains of slavery” at Emancipation, which was technically abolished in 1834, but not completely in effect until four years later after the apprenticeship period was completed. In 1838, full freedom was achieved and celebrated by more than 70,000 African Barbadians flooding the street in exultation. The statue commemorates their freedom, and many Barbadians refer to it as Bussa in honor of the free-born West African slave Bussa, who began the revolt against slavery in 1816. Bussa is also listed as one of Barbados’s National Heroes.

Project HARP Space Gun
© Courtesy of rootstocks -

The Project Harp Space Gun was initiated to create a giant gun with the sole purpose of shooting projectiles into space. Designed by ballistics engineer Gerald Bull, it was constructed from a 65-foot long, 16-inch naval cannon, reminiscent of what would be seen on a battleship. Shortly thereafter it was expanded by adding another barrel, extending the gun’s length to reach 130 feet, making it too large for military application, but supposedly ideal for satellite delivery. In 1963 the gun set a world record for sending an object 112 miles into the sky, but was otherwise ineffective. Today, its rusted remains can be viewed with permission on the active military base where it resides.
