The Waitukubuli Trail is the longest hiking trail in the Caribbean: it is a stunning 185 km long. It has 14 segments, beginning in the southern village of Scott’s Head, and ending in the north at Cabrit’s National Park.

Cocoa Cottage is located close to segment 3 and 4. Please ask our manager about the status of the segments of the trail. We can also recommend a guide to help you experience this beautiful hiking experience.

Titou Gorge is a magic place to visit. It is a narrow gap or crack between two high rock walls. A stream flows at the bottom of this crack, and the sunlight shines in from far above. You swim into the Gorge in the stream, for about 50 meters, until you reach the end of the Gorge. There you find a waterfall. If you dare to, you can get very close to the waterfall and bathe under it. The distance between the walls is about 5 meters, and there is no place to stand up or to hold on to. So please put the life jacket on that is supplied to you at the entry to the Gorge. Continue reading “Titou Gorge”
