On Tuesday I gave you directions to two different caves and the Codrington plantation house. I also told you to come back and I would give you directions to the very cool Darby Sink Hole, which is across the plateau the Barbudians call the “Highlands”. It is a couple hundred
feet across and around 50 feet down. Inside you will find the cliff over hanging and a palm trees forest in the middle.
The path starts at the plantation house and is tricky to follow your first time (kind of easy to get lost). I recommend hiring a guide and George Jeffery cannot be beat (VHF: Garden of Eden or phone: 788-7067). With that warning out of the way here are the directions that should get you to the Darby Sink Hole:
Take the path to the left of the cook house
- You should pass a building with nicely carved stone floor on your right
- Cross over a small foundation
- Go between two nice stone gates
- It will be a 45-minute walk on a red trail
- When the trail goes over limestone there will be a red path over it.
- There are two spots where you could get confused, take the left both times
There should be yellow ribbon or small stone piles every now and then to help you
- The trail will run right into the sink hole and you need to go right a bit to go down in it
