There is a peaceful resting area at the bottom for those guests who wish to wait on the hikers while indulging in a cool beverage.

From there you will take a short ride to Parrot Ville Bird Park and Sanctuary, a hidden gem that is not advertised but has its share of visitors due to word of mouth.

Then it's your turn to hand feed the birds and get a photo with you and your new feathered friends during this guided tour.

Upon arrival at Great Bay Beach you will be greeted with a tropical drink as you lounge on your chair and work on your tan. Take a refreshing swim in the crystal blue waters, try your hand at sandcastles, or enjoy a relaxing stroll on the boardwalk while drinking in the experience. Stay as long as you like before you take the short walk back to port through boutique shops, eateries, and more (transport options available at your own expense). Your tour includes an open bar on the bus offering rum punch, beers, non-alcoholic options, and snacks. This 4-hour adventure is perfect for kids of all ages! Sign up now.

Hike Birds & Beach Excursion
March 03, 2023
The Hike, birds & beach excursion was so wonderful! Guides led us on a walk up the island to so much beauty all around. The bird arena had food for us to actually feed & interact with many beautiful birds. The beach had plenty of sand and ocean views. There were many enjoying the beach with plenty of room for everyone. There was also food, drinks & restrooms. Such a beautiful, peaceful time! Thanks all who assisted the greatness of these adventures!

Hiked along a Reid above the beautiful water with an experienced guide who pointed everything out! It was ho and we were tired but a great experience, then onto the Birds…. What a trip! Tons of birds all over! No rush and and informative staff! Great. Lastly, the beautiful, comfortable beach with cushioned chairs and umbrellas for us to rest in. The water was excellent! Thanks.

So much fun!

It turned out that we were the only two signed up for this excursion, so we got a private tour! The weather was a bit questionable, so our guide Leroy took us to a different spot to hike — the natural pools were beautiful, and Leroy was a great guide! He and the taxi driver Tony made the whole day fun. We got to feed iguanas (a bonus stop), and the bird park was a cute out-of-the-way place to go. There were so many birds, and we got to feed many of them. At the end of the tour, Leroy took us to a beach near our cruise ship, bought us piña coladas, secured us beach chairs/umbrella, and left us to enjoy a little beach time on our own. We really had a great time hanging out with Leroy for the afternoon — he’s a local guy who knows everything and everyone, and he seems to really enjoy what he does. Even with a group, this would have been a fun day, but I’m so glad this excursion didn’t get canceled and we got a private tour!

This was a very personalized tour, just the 2 of us and our guide. He took us to some very interesting and scenic areas on the island. I recommend it highly.
