Area beaches

Pointe Baptiste Beach:

Turn right at the main road (toward the airport) drive or walk through the village and halfway up the hill until a paved road turns left. There is a sign in blue that says Pointe Baptiste. Turn left and go past 2 houses on the right. Turn right down a dirt road ( it looks like a driveway and is easy to miss). You will end about 10 feet from the beach. If you continue up the paved road and go to the end there is a beautiful 30 minute hike to red rocks with good photography

Sand beach at pointe Baptiste

View of beach for the cliff aboveHodges Bay:

Go north through all the village and down a long hill. Cross a bridge (Hodges River) . Turn left at the first dirt road. It is better to park at the wide spot and not drive all the way down. At the end of the road is the beach. The old man there is really a nice person. On this beach it is best to leave things that can be stolen where he can watch and give him a cigarette or a dollar to keep his eye on them.

Woodford Hill Beach:

Continue north (about 2 miles) until you see a sign on the left saying "Woodford Hill Beach". Turn left and go to the bottom. This is a mile long white beach with good snorkeling on the reef. AS YOU CONTINUE NORTH DO NOT SWIM WHERE THERE ARE ROCKS INSTEAD OF SAND. THERE IS AN UNDERTOW

Hamstead Beach (Number 1):

Across the main road at the start of Wind Blow Ridge Road you will see a drive with two posts, follow the old road and then path to the beach. The beach is lovely but do not swim if the sea is rough. The mouth of the river is the best place to swim anyway. Great for a day picnic.

A major location for the Pirates of the Caribbean

Hamstead River (Number 2):

Turn left at the main road drive or walk another 1/2 mile and either park before the second bridge or cross and park at the old sugar mill. Walk behind the mill and as far up the river as you wish. There is good bathing everywhere there is a deeper spot.

Batibou Beach:

Turn left at the main road drive and go up a long hill. Nearly at the top there is a dirt road on the right. Follow this road to a wide parking spot and walk. You can drive all the way to the beach with a 4X4. This is a beautiful beach with safe swimming The first portion of the sea has sharp coral so be careful. Go at least 50 ft down the beach to swim. The woods here are close to the beach so do not leave valuables on your towel while you walk or swim.

Hiking and Water Falls

Walking the farm access roads

Garden Road Hike (our favorite)

Local residents cultivate their gardens of dasheen, banana, mango and many other fruits and vegetables at the edge of the rain forest along Wind Blow Road. You can walk to the back of the garden areas to take pictures of untouched rain forest or just to view. Walk to where this road meets a paved road. Then take any road that turns left and you will return to the village (total about 4-5 miles) If you see someone in their garden, a smile and a friendly greeting will usually invite a welcoming reply and maybe even an invitation to sample some of the fruit! This is also an excellent bird watching route. Early in the morning or just before dusk is a great time to watch for parrots. You will usually hear them before you see them.

Chaudiere (Kettle) Falls

Turn left at the main road, drive to Bense. Nearby is Chaudiere Falls, also known as Kettle Falls, is a beautiful rain forest fall at the end of a moderate 30 minute hike from the road. There are sheer granite cliffs and falls spilling into a carved out basin. Take a picnic and swim and relax at this enchanting spot. The falls can also be reached by hiking upstream along the Hamstead River, although this is a much longer and more arduous route (guide required).
