Turners Hall Woods

Turners Hall Woods

In the north-eastern parish of Barbados remains one of the few natural reserves, which appears to be one of the areas of original woodlands from pre-colonised Barbados. It is called Turners Hall Woods. Prior to 1627, the island would have would have been described as a tropical rain forest.

Perfect for hikers and nature lovers, Turners Hall Woods comprise 50 acres of winding paths and trails, tall trees, vegetation and lots of attractive palm trees. Do not be in the least surpised to see monkeys as you walk through as it is this kind of unspoilt territory, which is home to them. It is worthy to mention that the woods are also frequently sought out by researcher, botanists and other scientists, who fascinated by its freshness and the many species of plant life and other vegetation which can be found there.

 

The trail winds uphill until it reaches a vantage lookout point over the entire east coast, which is aptly called Windy Hill.  

 

Turners Hall Woods is not inhabited and are quite extensive. It is therefore recommended that you seek a guided tour or find a local official guide and not attempt to go alone as it would be quite lonely. If doing "stop and stare" walks is your thing, in no way, let this be a deterrent, just grab a few new like-minded "friends" from the hotel or guest house and make your way up to the north of the island of Barbados.
