When our group arrived the station was closed and areas were being renovated however one quick call by staff and the manager arrived to open it for us. The views were fantastic as well as reading the history. Huge thank you for opening for us.

We visited on a quiet day during our family trip to Barbados so we were lucky to have the place all to ourselves. Awesome views of the South and Southern part of the Western side of the island. We learnt some of the Bajan history of towers and signal stations. There is a cafe on site where you can get... More

This was our last stop off for the day and we timed it right as the cruise ship tours had left and the guy running the place happily chatted away and we probably got a much more in depth tour than most, which was good. It was $15bd for entry, but it is a national trust site, so if you... More

Not much to add to other reviews, other than to say its a great place to visit just to stand in the shade, with a cool wind looking out across Barbados, Great view. Clean and well run. Parking on street - but no issue. Its not on a major road, so no danger to bus attack - they drive fast.

We decided to drop by as we have been to Barbados many times but we never visited this attraction. The hill has nice views of the South and the Southern part of the West of the island. There are a few exhibits explaining how the whole system of towers and flag signals came about. The flowers and bushes on the... More

We decided to stop here late in the afternoon. This turned out to be a very good decision. All of the cruise ship visitors had left for the day and we were able to chat with the young man who was in charge. He gave us lots of information, pointed out landmarks and took photos. Plenty of time to explore... More

Honestly I was underwhelmed it's not guided a small place great views for pictures but that's about it not bad for the price I guess.
