The sunny, sandy beaches may be what first comes to mind when you think of luxury travel to Barbados, but for an adventure that will leave you with memories for a lifetime, explore one of the island's most beautiful, dark spots: Harrison's Cave. Harrison's Cave is a crystallized limestone cavern with crystal clear pools and cool streams running through it. Hop on a tram, and take a guided tour through the stalactites and stalagmites. At certain points, you can disembark and touch the craggy landscape.

The island has an abundance of aquatic life, and if you want to get up-close and personal with some of the world's most majestic creatures, you can arrange a tour with Cliff Sharker to snorkel with sea turtles around shipwrecks. The tour takes you to Carlyle Bay to swim around the wreckage, and while in the sea, you'll encounter the giant sea turtles firsthand. These gentle creatures will impress you with their beauty and regal nature!

3. Ride Horses on Bath Beachhorse

The east coast of Barbados is lined with beaches that are ideal for horseback riding. One of the best is Bath Beach, where you can arrange for a horseback riding tour that takes you to see stunning views of nearby fishing villages, and tons of boats if you're there for yacht week. Your experienced guides teach you how to ride horses and explain the landscape around you. You will also be privy to some stunning wildlife on the way, like the mongooses and green monkeys that populate the island.
