What's open on a Sunday?

We have a one day cruise stop in Barbados - on a Sunday. Will shops etc be open as normal. Thinking of going to Holetown - will there be anything open there?

The Churches will be open. You can hear everybody singing and are welcome to join in, I'm no Churchgoer but I really thought it created a lovely atmosphere as the sounds of the hymmns echoed around the streets.

I imagine the shopping centre will be open for tourist reasons but generally, I noticed a lot of cafe's and bars were closed, certainly earlier in the day.

Don't hold me to this but I think there'll still be plenty of places open for you to explore.

If you're going to Holetown, the Plaza near Sunset Crest is open, the Cave Shepherd at least. Then the "Chattel" Village next dooe is usually open. Plus restaurants are open at their usual hours. If you want a nice relaxing lunch overlooking the beach go to the restaurant across from the shopping mall.

Hi, to be honest it depends what you are wanting to do there, eat and drink - fine- but shopping not really much. We ventured out of our hotel on a sunday as it was quite overcast and a little cooler to find not much in the shopping way open and that was during the christmas period. There are plenty of places to visit i.e tourist attractions open throughout the island but not specifically in holetown.

I would suggest booking a private tour with Sarah from Glory Tours. We had friends who were just there over New Years and they loved the tour she gave (also on a Sunday). You can check them out at: www.glorytours.org

If you mention LOISSPECIAL, I think she will give you a very discounted rate.
