If you visit the wildlife reserve you might like to climb up the signal station and listen to the 6 minutes recording. The views from up there are worth it but a special trip to the signal station alone isn't.

We stopped in the area to visit the Barbados Wildlife Reserve but could not skip the Forest hike. The hike through the Mahogany forest is serene and wild. Quiet, remote and alone, that is how it felt. We did pass a few other guests, but...More

Adjacent to the Barbados Wildlife Reserve. One ticket gets entrance to both areas at 23.50BD. Walk up through the forest then climb the stairs to the top of the Signal Station for a great view over the island.

The signal station itself is not that interesting as buildings go, but the view over to the coast from the top floor is good. The forest itself is actually much more enjoyable than the signal station, especially on a hot, sunburnt day, walking through leafy...More

We all loved this place (as much as the wildlife reserve!) the forest is so peaceful and my boys loved reading all the lift the flap questions and really learnt a lot. The paths are gorgeous and well maintained (would be hard with younger kids/buggy)...More

The signal station and Grenade Hall Forest is a visit that is coupled with the Wildlife Reserve - the entrance fee covers both visits. At BDS$23.70 each ( approx US$12) this is one Barbados visit that is quite good value for money. The signal station...More

Went alongside a trip to the Barbados wildlife reserve as the ticket prices are inclusive of this too..we preferred this to the Wild life Reserve. Peaceful walk but wear sensible shoes as paths are steep and slippery not suitable for anyone with mobility issues ....More

The signal station has been renovated relatively recently and is interesting for the perspective it gives on that period of Bajan history - and the audio is a useful supplement. The views from the top are worth the trip but maybe some indication could be...More

Visited the Wildlife Reserve in April 2016 as part of an organised trip alongside Harrison's Caves ( also excellent). Very much enjoyed seeing the green monkeys who had just been fed when we visited. The tortoises, peacocks, deer, reptiles and birds were also great. The...More

Is it possible to buy an entry ticket just for the signal station, for those who aren't keen on seeing animals in cages but want a good place to get close to monkeys? What time would you recommend visiting? Thanks so much!

Be careful visiting late in the day... I went an hour before closing time and the staff closed early despite knowing I was in there and so I got locked in and had to climb over the fence to get out! From what I remember you... More
