Christ Church Barbados is a parish located on the south
coast of Barbados. The majority of restaurants, hotels,
and Barbados attractions are located within the parish,
making Christ Church tourism a strong industry in Barbados.
There are many attractions and things
to do on a Christ Church vacation and a variety of Barbados all inclusive
resorts and holidays that will make for a memorable holiday.
If you're traveling to Christ Church Barbados
by air, you'll most likely land at the Grantley
Adams International Airport. Many visitors like to start
their Christ Church vacation with a trip to the Barbados
Concorde Experience. Christ Church Barbados is home to
the Alpha Echo, a retired Concorde jet that once made
record fast trips across the Atlantic from London's Heathrow airport to Barbados every week. Visitors can
learn more about the technology behind the legendary aircraft
and how regular flights
to Barbados helped boost Barbados's tourism
industry by watching a multimedia show. The museum is
open every day from 9am to 6pm. Admission prices are 35
Barbados dollars for adults and 25 dollars for children.
One major draw of taking a Christ Church tour is the beaches you will encounter. Water sports enthusiasts enjoy kite and wind surfing at Long Beach, Silver Rock Beach, and Silver Sands. If you're into traditional surfing, the most well known surf spot in Barbados is Freights Bay on the southern tip. Be sure to visit the South Point Lighthouse, a common stopping point on a Barbados tour.
There are two golf courses in Christ Church Barbados. A relaxing game of Barbados golf can be played at the Barbados Golf Club or at the Rockley Golf and Country Club. After your Christ Church tour, head over to the Glove Drive Inn, a unique drive in movie theater. Since the temperature in Barbados rarely gets about 75 degrees, watching a movie while lying under the stars or in your car with your windows rolled down appeals to a lot of tourists. The theatre plays both new releases and older films.
When the Europeans colonized Barbados, they brought religious traditions with them. Visitors to Barbados can visit several Anglican churches in Christ Church, including the Christ Church Parish Church. The church is a famous stopping point on a Christ Church tour because of the "moving coffins" inside of the Chase family vault. The coffins of the 5 family members that were laid to rest inside the vault reportedly moved around after the vault had been sealed. If you're a person who gets scared easily, you may want to consider visiting a church in Christ Church that is less spooky! Non-haunted options include St. David's Church and St. Patrick's church.
A Christ Church vacation wouldn't be complete
without a trip to Oistins, a thriving fishing village
that is famous for the Oistins
fish festival. Every Friday and Saturday, visitors
gather in the streets of Oistins to feast upon freshly
caught fish, including mahi mahi and Flying Fish. A plate
of food at the festival will set you back around 15 Barbados
dollars, which is approximately equal to seven U.S. dollars.
After the food, stick around for the live reggae and jazz
bands. Christ Church tourism is especially high because
of the fish festival.
Some hotels you might consider staying at on a Christ Church vacation are the Almond Causarina Beach Club, Kingsland Palace Hotel, or the Escape at the Gap. There are many accommodation choices in Christ Church, including seaside villas and all inclusive resorts.
Taking a tour of Christ Church is sure to be an adventure of a lifetime. With so many things to do, Christ Church tourism is in full swing all year.
