Even if you don't take part in making a sculpture while listing this trail, stopping a while to look at what others have made is fascinating. The ocean breezes are refreshing after a long hike back down from Ram's Head.

Drunk Bay is not what most people think Dunk is the Dutch word for drowning. There have been a number of ship wrecks and is not a sutiable beach for swiming. The only access I have ever used is by way of the Ramshead trail....More

Go for the clever coral sculptures that people leave on the rocks, stay for the amazing views that will make you feel more like you are in Ireland then in the Caribbean. Just don't get in the water. It's very rough and not safe. This...More

You have to see it to believe it . Waves crashing and all around you are artistic sculptures made from what the ocean has thrown on the shore.

This very short trail will take you from Salt Pond Bay over to Drunk Bay where people have made coral people and cairns out of coral and rocks on the beach! Very cool! This is not a swimming beach at all. Just a fun place...More

Short walk from salt pond came to drunk bay where the stones and coral are used to make some interesting sculptures. My favorite was the alligator.

Absolutely loved this hike. Easy hike to a unique beach. If you need a smile, this is the place to go! As husband and I were approaching the bay, I asked, "Why do you think they named it Drunk Bay?" The most whimsical little bay...More

If you get to Salt Pond you must do the very short walk along Drunk Bay trail. The rock people created by fellow travelers are like a alien race all along the ocean. We enjoyed it so much we insisted our travelling companions do it...More

There is a nice little hike down a rocky, dirt road to Salt Pond Bay, which is a great beach for snorkeling and relaxing. If you hike a little further, past the Salt Pond (which smells remarkably like salt!), you'll come to Drunk Bay, obviously...More
