Attractions near Amaryllis Beach Resort
Stroll along the boardwalk
Just along the coast from Amaryllis Beach Resort are two boardwalks every tourist should visit – at Allamanda Beach and the South Coast Boardwalk. Allamanda Beach Boardwalk is a great place to get a bit of casual exercise in while admiring the coastal views. Here, you’ll also find restaurant after restaurant to return to.
Around July, you may even be lucky enough to see turtles hatching early in the morning. The South Coast Boardwalk has similar great views, especially at sunset, with a palm-fringed beach along much of the way. As a major tourist destination, it's very safe thanks to the segway-riding police in the area.
Visit Barbados Museum & Historical Society
Slightly inland is the Barbados Museum & Historical Society, housed in a former prison. Humoursly, the troops that were once stationed here have been replaced by invading groups of monkeys!
The museum has exhibits detailing much of the island's history, from local fauna to the story of African migration and English settlement. Close to the museum is another building with historic significance – the accommodation used by George Washington on his visits to Bridgetown. The museum is open seven days a week and closed on public holidays.
