It was quite the drive to this location but so worth it. Short hike was easy. The views are once in a lifetime experience. Very remote and a lot of untouched land and beaches. Great day trip or even for a short trip.

It’s a long drive to get there no matter what road you choose. Both roads are challenging (we drove on both of them) but the road past the airport is more passable in a tiny rental car. Anyhow once finally getting there you see a...More

The berry was absolutely worth the squeeze. Went with family group of 10 (safety in numbers). Take Millenium Hwy to Tom Lightbourne Rd and turn left on Tom Lightbourne. Travel 5.9 miles on rocky bumpy gravel/dirt road. When the passengers get uneasy keep going. You’re...More

Numerous reviews mention safety and crime, but our group of 4 had no issues at all. And we saw multiple groups once we were there, adding to our comfort level. Bring your hiking shoes! We didn't get in the water here, I think there are...More

Bare with me for this long detailed informative guide that will help you plan your trip here. At first we read some reviews about crime here and that was our biggest concern before heading out. After speaking with some locals they assured us that it...More

Pirate’s Cove is a beautiful unspoilt spot for exploring and escaping the crowds of the highly populated tourist beaches. Well worth the 50 minute drive from Grace Bay (30 mins for the last 5 miles along an unsurfaced road )... a normal rental car will...More

It was almost an adventure getting there, but so very worth it. We met one other group of people, it was quiet and private. Best of all, it was stunningly beautiful.
