Caves of Barbados Ltd.
Harrison’s Cave, Barbados’ most popular land-based visitor attraction, is a natural karst limestone formation featuring a series of subterranean passages, with a gallery of stalactites, stalagmites, lakes, streams, and waterfalls. This unique phenomenon of nature is the only commercialized subterranean cave in Barbados and has the distinction of being one of three (3) drive-in caves in the world.
On 19 March 1999, Caves of Barbados Ltd.
