Farley Hill National Park


Off Hwy. 2, Barbados Wildlife Reserve,


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.
