Farley Hill National Park

Off Hwy. 2
Barbados Wildlife Reserve
Bridgetown, Barbados

Located in the parish of St. Andrew, this 17-acre park is built around the ruins of the Farley Hill house, a coral-stone mansion dating from 1818. After serving as the backdrop for the 1957 film Island in the Sun, the hillside mansion was partially destroyed in a fire; however, the stone walls still stand, combining with panoramic ocean views to create a dramatic setting for picnics and weddings. Each January, the tree-shaded park also hosts an outdoor concert as part of the Barbados Jazz Festival, which draws some of the world’s most talented musicians.

Insider Tip:

The park is often packed with visitors during the weekend, especially on Sunday; plan to go on a weekday if you’re looking for a quieter, more peaceful experience.
