Rising Forward barbados

Aerial video of 50 locations across Barbados, celebrating the island's 50th anniversary of Independence.

This impressive drone video was compiled by Above Barbados in celebration of Barbados’ 50th year of Independence.

Among the 50 island locations featured in the video are historic sites, beaches and coastlines, the countryside, churches, and sports.

Fittingly, the opening footage shows sunrise on the east coast of Barbados - symbolic of the dawn of an Independent Barbados in 1966. After a brief flyover of the countryside we head to Independence Square in the capital city Bridgetown where we see a statue Errol Barrow, the first Prime Minister of Barbados known locally as the ‘Father Of Independence’.

Our next stop is the Emancipation Statue, emblematic of the slave history of the island and testimony to the strength and determination of our people. Sticking with the statue theme we fly by the statue of cricketing great and National Hero Sir Garfield Sobers, located at Kensington Oval.

Next we’re off to the Gun Hill Signal Station then head over to the turquoise waters on the south-east coast. Back along the coastline and over the lush countryside we go!

The diversity of Barbados’ coastline is beautifully highlighted as we move from coast to coast. From the gentle shores of the west to the rugged beauty of the north and east.

Flying into a historic church we can see the beautiful stained windows and impressive architectural features.

Throughout the video island activities are captured in the form of surfing, sailing, golf courses and car racing.

As the video closes we’re treated to sunsets shots around the island, then a night view of the capital city.
