Spittal Pond Nature Reserve


Visit one of the island’s largest and most untouched open spaces to spot numerous resident and migrating birds, as well as plants like Bermuda Cedar, olivewoods and spice trees. Spittal Pond Nature Reserve encompasses 64 acres of wetlands along the South Shore, with winding walking trails throughout. Interesting sights include the Checkerboard, an unusual limestone formation with a distinct pattern of cracks where whalers used to haul out their catch, and Portuguese Rock, where an inscription (now replaced with a bronze casting) is thought to be the oldest evidence of humans on the island.

“A nice hike at Spittal Pond”

We hiked this area, and got lost for a short bit. But it is not too big so we found our way within a few minutes. Very infrequently visited by tourists, so this was a good one for us!
