Fodor's Expert Review Harry Bayley Observatory

South Coast Observatory/Planetarium

Reopened in January 2014 with a fresh interior, high-tech fittings, and a new dome—and reequipped with a 16-inch Meade telescope with the latest robotic controls and digital cameras and a new Lunt 80mm solar telescope—the observatory lets you view the moon, stars, planets, and other astronomical objects that may not be visible from mainland North America or Europe. The evening program, which starts with an informative presentation, is run by volunteers; call ahead to make sure it's open. The observatory has been the headquarters of the Barbados Astronomical Society since 1963.
