Aside from rum and spices, Barbados is best known for its clay pottery. Although many shops in the capital of Bridgetown sell different artisan products, Forbes Travel Guide’s editors think the best pottery on island remains Highland Pottery, Inc. Located on the east coast just north of Bathsheba, shoppers must travel up Chalky Mount, where they will be pleasantly greeted with breathtaking views. We found the prices here are cheaper than run-of-the-mill gift shops and the quality is fantastic. The variety includes stoneware, dishes and festive pottery. Also worth picking up is black-coral jewelry. You can find it beachside or in local craft stores all over Barbados.
