St. Andrew is located on the east­ern side of the island and is renowned for his hills and val­leys. There are not many attrac­tions in this parish, but there are a few places of inter­est suit­able for both locals and tourists to visit.

Beaches

There is only one beach of note in St. Andrew and that is the Mor­gan Lewis Beach. While it is not ideal for sea bathing due to the very strong cur­rents and large waves, it is per­fect for long walks due to the expanse of white sand.

Attrac­tions

Mount Hill­aby – at 1115 ft. it is the high­est point in Bar­ba­dos and one of the best scenic spots as well.
