Rebecca's Cave

Commemorating a tragic event while incorporating a beautiful natural space on the island, Rebecca's Cave touches every visitor that makes the relatively easy trek.

What to Expect

The story of Rebecca's Cave is that a mother and her young daughter fled to the cave during the Hurricane of 1932. Although they managed to make it through the storm, the daughter came down with pneumonia and without access to help, she died there in the cave. Today, a small coffin marks her grave.

Along with the memorial, guests are treated to local fauna in the form of large hermit grabs and tiny lizards hopping about the trail leading to the cave.

The cave is well-marked and the trail leading to it is an easy walk. The path leads up a hill along a foot path and a bridge.
