About 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.
