Barbados Geography

Barbados is an island set in the crystal clear Caribbean Sea. Its east coast meets the choppy Atlantic making the coast more rugged and rocky than the peaceful waters of the west and south coast. The highest point in Barbados is Mount Hillaby (1,105 ft) in the northern-central area of the island. Barbados is geologically unique as it is a combination of two land masses that merged together over the years. This and other incongruities make the island of Barbados quite phenomenal with geological structures that you will find only in Barbados. There are major wetlands in the south of Barbados providing a perfect home for a collection of plants and animals creating an important link in the food chain of offshore fish and birds.
