Cool Retreat

Gullies have long been a favourite attraction on Barbados. In 1789, an early visitor sent a letter home to England that was published in a London magazine. The writer says, “gullies… run for many miles in all directions… Many of these profound and silent bottoms abound with the most romantic scenery, composed of lofty perpendicular cliffs, fantastic grottos, deep caverns and huge rocks that resemble ruined castles, overrun with groves and thickets… the refreshing moisture of perpetual shade… afford the most cool and delicious retreats.”
