Your guide to Christchurch holidays
The south west corner of Barbados is teeming with things to see and do! Here are a few highlights to look forward to on Christchurch breaks.
- One of the main reasons to book a package holiday to Christchurch is the parish’s gorgeous beaches. There’s a bounty of white-sand bays to choose from, including Dover Beach with its fantastic water sports.
- Bridgetown is only a short drive away in Saint Michael. The Barbadian capital is jam-packed with colonial architecture, brilliant shopping and intriguing historical landmarks.
- St Lawrence Gap is perhaps the best-known neighbourhood in Barbados. Encompassing Dover Beach, it’s teeming with popular Christchurch hotels, fine-dining eateries and lively bars.
- Barbados’ interiors are awash with lush, tropical greenery. Take a drive to Gun Hill Signal Station 20 minutes from St Lawrence Gap for epic views across the whole island.

Outdoor attractions in Christchurch
