the rope to climb down to Little Bay

Can anyone provide directions to it? We ended up paying the nice boat operator to take us over . We saw people climb down while we were snorkeling.

Okay, we'll try to describe how you find it.

There's a scenic overlook that has a path leading towards the sea. Walk along that path until you come to the cliff. Look for the rope. Good luck!

Or go to Crocus Bay and ask for ( I think his name is Calvin) he'll boat you there for a very low fee. I did the rope once and it isn't too bad.

Hey brewchef,

Looks like you've received good directions to get to the rope.

Climbing down into and back up from Little Bay is fine with a towel and some snorkeling gear...

We have yet to figure out how to get the cooler down with the brews... chef.

As such, for $15 r/t each, Calvin gets the cooler and our "brewbabes" to Little Bay with ease and comfort.

The "brewbabes" are happy and we have some chilled brews with a couple sandwiches from Koal Keel. Anguiila is paradise!



Calvin's cell # is 264-497-3939

Make sure the cooler has a strong handle. Tie a rope to the handle. Lower it down first before you head down. Tie off the rope at the top of the cliff. When you go back up, leave the cooler in position at the bottom, then use the rope to pull it up. It will be a lot less heavy to pull up after drinking the brewskis.

That said, I would still prefer to pay Calvin.

Thanks z4luvr,

Hear what you're saying but there simply is too much risk and too much discomfort.

Actually, the "brewbabes" prefer Calvin's boat and we prefer the full contingent of beer.

For $30, the babes are cooing at the views coming into the bay without the dread of climbing both in and out.. Plus, if my knot slipped, we'd loose the brews and our Little Bay visit would be reuined. We'd look like dopes and that is so not Anguillian.

We'll be seeing Calvin regularly.

if you are paying for the ladies to go with Calvin - and that's fine - is there any real reason why you need to risk harm and possible disaster to just climb down the rope?

Am unsure if you've done the rope climb yourself but the "challenge" of climbing down and up is way too appealing to circumvent.

Also, am unsure if anyone has talked here about climbing to the top of the rock in the middle of Little Bay and jumping off?

Locals do it all the time and it's quite a sight and quite more of a challenge than the climb into and out of the beach.

Did it once just to say so. The climb part was not so hard. It was the moving to the edge of the steep rock face and knowing that you're jumping at the right spot and far enough out to make the water.

What's life without some truly natural challenges?

Life is a blast and Anguilla is paradise.
