How to Access The Beach

On the southern part of Nevis, from Taylor's Pleasure, head southeast on the road beginning at Gingerland Public Cemetery in between Gingerland Methodist Church and the Brookes gas station. Follow this south through a residential area. Once beyond all the houses, take your fist right. Stay on this until you reach a fork in the road. Taking it left a very short distance will take you to the coast. A 4X4 vehicle is recommended for the later part of this drive.
