This is a moderate 1-hour hike up a rocky stream bed and through scrub brush to a secluded rocky beach with a shipwreck and good snorkeling.
You can follow this path if you’ve never done it before, but you’d be better off going with someone who already has. Or if you have GPS, there is a track available below.
Drive to Major’s Bay. This is where the car ferry leaves for Nevis. Turn right. There is a rocky/sandy road that heads along the beach. Most cars can handle it if you get slow and it gets better after the initial rocky part.
Continue all the way along the road straight until you can’t go any further and park. Get your gear together and walk onto the beach, heading right.
The sand will turn into rocks. Continue along the rocks for maybe 10 meters and there will be a path to your right heading up the hill.
Follow this path all the way along until you are flush with the shipwreck. There are two orange markers. Turn right and head up the streambed.
Once the streambed gets hard to follow you will see two orange markers to your right. Follow a trail of markers until you get to an open area then turn left. Continue due west until you see more orange markers ahead and to your left.
Follow the markers through the brush until you get back onto the streambed heading down the other side. Follow the streambed to the shipwreck, and you’re there!
