Getting Around

Two main roads will get visitors throughout the Park. They are Centerline Road (Route 10) and the North Shore Road (Route 20). Route 20 provides access to most beaches such as Hawknest, Trunk Bay and Cinnamon Bay. Route 10 runs through the center of the Island and will provide access to Salt Pond Bay and Lameshur Bay.

The best and safest way of getting around the Park and the Island would be by vehicle. Bicycles are not recommended due to steep and winding roads.
