Christ Church Holidays

On the south coast of Barbados one can find Christ Church, a parish which offers lots of attractions, top notched hotels and restaurants and of course quite a few beaches where you can swim, lounge or surf.

As one of the eleven parishes on the island, Christ Church was so named back in 1629 by then Governor Sir William Tufton. In Christ Church you will find the Sir Grantley Adams International Airport and Oistins, one of the more popular towns in the parish.

Christ Church is a fairly big enough parish with over 10 towns and villages. Each town or village not only offers you the caress of a gentle and cool sea breeze but the palm trees here bend out of shape just a little so that you can catch a glimpse of how enticing the calming blue waters are.

So what is interesting to explore while staying in Christ Church, Barbados? Just about everything that you can imagine. There are many historic sites here that if you are travelling with children, they will definitely benefit from the information that they receive.

Visit The Graeme Hall Nature Sanctuary where you would find the Graeme Hall Swamp. This mangrove swamp is very popular with those who visit; the swamp is the home to both small and large fish as well as little crabs. But more than those who visit the swamp are intrigued by the egrets who only seem to pay a visit during the evening time and other birds who return to the swamp each year. Also to see at the swamp are parrots, flamingos and Scarlet Ibis.

Also worth seeing is the Barbados Concorde Experience where one can see a display of the full-sized Alpha Echo Concorde jet. The Concorde which is now retired, was known as one of the fastest jets and it is also an aircraft used to fly tourists into Barbados. For a little more than $30, you can get an up-close and personal by viewing the interested facts and materials connected to the Concorde aircraft.

If you have sampled the famed Banks beer and fell in love with it, then your next tour should be to the Banks Brewery where you can see how the beer of Barbados is produced. Aside from seeing how the beer is processed, you also get an opportunity to taste the results at the bar on site. At the bar you are always sure to get a really cold brew to sample. They also have a souvenir shop as well.

If you ever wanted to know about Barbados' rich culture, then you should make it a must to attend the “Bajan Roots and Rhythms” show which takes on the form of a dinner theatre. The location for this show is usually at a place called “The Plantation” which is on the outskirts of Christ Church. On display here are not only the tasty Bajan food that you sure to experience here but snippets of Bajan culture represented by the fire eaters, stilt-walkers aka moko jumbies and cultural dancers. The show is such an intriguing one that you are likely to spend more time getting caught up in the show rather than eating.

The show usually lasts two hours and then it's over to the house DJ to set the mood right for the rest of the night.
