Pearl Bay Chickee

Quick Facts

Beach/Water Access, Canoe/Kayak/Small Boat Launch, Scenic View/Photo Spot, Shelter/Cabin, Toilet - Vault/Composting

This chickee is designed to accommodate campers with disabilities. The platforms have railings on several sides, and there is a large chemical toilet. One of the platforms has steps leading down to the water to facilitate access. The chickee sits in the bay, away from the surrounding mangroves, and is open at all sides, so mosquitoes usually are not a problem. On a moonless night, the stars are reflected hugely in the still waters of the bay. Dolphins swim past, hunting a midnight snack.

Access - Accessible by boat, canoe, and kayak from Whitewater Bay. Accessible by canoe or kayak only, via Hell’s Bay Canoe Trail (starts off park road). The trail is well marked with white PVC poles from the trailhead.
