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 has been renovated and a short audio guide sets the scene. There are good views...

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 . Were able to feed the green monkeys with a handful of seeds . We walked... 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 given as to where the othe signal station were to connect with? Back down to... 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 path through the reserve is uneven however and I would suggest stout footwear and to... More

Get close to nature on this educational walk through the Bajan jungle, but please wear trainers or walking shoes - you'll regret it if you try to stumble around in flipflops or heels! The paths are quite steep in places, and the slabs are covered in moss which becomes very wet and slippery after/during rain. We didn't see any monkeys... More

Worth a look if you are passing or also doing the wildlife reserve, the ticket for which covers both. You get close up with green monkeys at the entrance, a nature trail walk down the valley and good views and a bit of history from the signal tower. A pleasant hour.

A mixture of experiences, the history and news from the Signal Station, nature trails with information boards ending in caves with bats and monkeys roaming free and playing in the sun. They spend the day here and only return to the nature reserve next door at the end of the day. Paths uneven and steep in places, could be slippy... More

Well done and interesting self-directed tour through a former dump site (you'd never know) with lots of information about tropical forests and demonstrating a keen appreciation of nature. If this is your thing, don't miss it.

Mildly interesting walking tour of the forest and visit to the abandoned military signal station. There are exhibits of historical interest and good views of the surrounding countryside. Not outstanding but worth a visit if you're passing.
