CYRIL BAY - (see Guide for a picture of the Bay)
This was once an inhabited cocoa village that has reverted to pristine condition with the passing of time. You begin your trek off the North Coast Road just before the Lookout. Here you plunge into the forest, but be careful of how you step as there are some slippery stones at the beginning of the trail. You will continue downwards through the dense canopy until you hear the rumbling of the waves. Here before your eyes, lies the turquoise water of a relatively sheltered bay, cozy and comfortable. It offers bathing for both non- swimmers and swimmers alike. You can relax under a small waterfall before you start your journey back to the top.
