We came to Harbour Lights for the wonderful snorkeling trip on their boat - just $35 for an hour with expert guides, taken as a small group (no being crammed with dozens onto a catamaran!) out first to a wreck site, and then further into...Carlisle Bay, to swim in an area visited by the wonderful turtles - quiet, graceful creatures, simply amazing to see, and very inquisitive! We saw wonderful fish as well, including an enormous spotted eagle ray. That price includes a lounger and umbrella on the beach (just $10 for the day on its own). The facilities are excellent and very clean, and the food and drink at Harbour Lights itself excellent! Just note - the principal currency here is US $ and that's what your change will come in if you pay in Barbadian currency.More

A nostalgic visit for us, back to the party place of bygone cruises. The food was great, I had steak and it was exactly as ordered, a pretty cool ask from a mass catered for BBQ. The entertainment was amazing, fantastic atmosphere, the party was...real and the drinks flowed. Only down was it finished far to early due to Covid curfew. Have always recommended this place to anyone visiting Barbados, if you haven’t experienced Harbour Lights you haven’t really been to a party. Staff are fabulous and nothing is too much trouble. Best party by the beach!More

We went to the evening extravaganza show and we were pleasantly surprised with how good it was. The venue had a great atmosphere and all staff were very friendly and helpful. We were not expecting a lot from the food, but how wrong were we,...the food was absolutely delicious. My husbands steak was one of the best hd has had. The entertainment was varied and really good. Overall a great night and would absolutely recommend it.More

My son and I arrived at Harborlight restaurant looking for live entertainment and dinner. The restaurant was only accepting reservations and was full to capacity. A young lady by the name of cecily challenger asked us if we needed help. I said that we didn't...know we needed reservations and she proceeded to call other restaurants for us. She was unsuccessful in referring us to another place. Suddenly, cecily disappeared and found us a table to enjoy the dinner and show. The bar drinks were included and the wide variety of food was delicious. This was my son's first visit to Barbados and cecily and the staff made it enjoyable for us. Hats off to Harborlight restaurant.More

We really enjoyed the night, what was really great was how well organised it was with the pick up and drop off, the food and drink. Then the show itself was entertaining and lively, fun for all the family. The Men and Women in the...show were brilliant and full of energy and we would recommend this night out when visiting Barbados.More

What a fantastic show at Harbour Lights in Carlisle Bay. Food and drink included in the ticket price was very good value for money. There was live music and dancing. Retail stalls to buy local made pictures and jewellery. The Cabaret show was fantastic, with...dancers and Men on stilts. Lovely beach front setting and the ticket price included transport there and back.More

Dinner show itself was super, service super but the transport there and back was shocking. If I wanted to do something life threatening I would have chosen bungee jumping or sky diving. Would have been 5 star if driver had been better. I could have...driven better after 20 rums! Recommend getting your own transport there and back.More

We booked the shipwreck and turtle snorkelling trip whilst on our family holiday. Our tour guide Alex was fantastic and made sure we all had an amazing time in the water. Felt really safe out with the kids and this trip was a real highlight...of the holiday. Great value.More

I was really looking forward to my visit to Harbour Lights as I’d heard some great things. However I was really disappointed. Although the food tasted alright, the portions were tiny. The dessert was literally the size of a coin. The drinks were nice and...the bar staff were really friendly. I enjoyed the fire eater and the guys on stilts. However the MC/host was terrible. He made a few comments that made me and my friends feel really uncomfortable to the point we wanted to leave. I was surprised as the people of Barbados are normally so welcoming and friendly, yet he did not make this place feel inclusive. Nobody was organising the transfers after the show so it was chaos. I really wanted a great night, but didn’t have one. For $100USD I felt it was poor value for money and sadly can’t recommend.More

We were staying on the island and decided to give Carlisle Bay a visit. We spent the day at Harbour Lights where we paid $35 US per person for a sunbed, umbrella and turtle tour. We have spent thousands coming to Barbados and this small...amount of $35 ended up being the best day we spent on the island! Firstly, we nearly had the place to ourselves as there were no cruise ships. So if you do plan on coming, try to avoid a day where there are cruise ships docked as it’s much quieter and relaxing. The place itself is so cool and has a real beach vibe. There are fresh water showers for you to rinse off after going in the sea. There were also changing rooms to use if you wanted. We bought a bucket of beer for $20 US which kept us going through the day. The turtle tour was incredible. We boarded a small boat with a captain, diver and his family. So there were only 7 of us on the boat which was such a great experience and made such a difference to the catamaran cruises where they pack you on like sardines. The diver took us to 3 different ship wrecks and gave us bread to feed the fish. We also swam with a turtle which we had all to ourselves! We weren’t rushed and they definitely gave us more time than we had paid for. It was the most incredible experience. We actually did Cool Runnings luxury catamaran cruise the week before. This was also good, but the snorkelling and wildlife experience was 100 times better from Harbour Lights and a fraction of the price. Please do yourself a favour and get down to harbour lights! It’s a beautiful beach, the water is almost crystal clear and there are turtles!More
