Rendezvous Bay Trail

There are a number of ways to access Rendezvous Bay, either from the Fig Tree Hill area, and Carlisle Bay, or from the English Harbour area. The beach itself is accessible by boat, although the bay can have swell making it difficult to moor up. We love this trail from Falmouth as you get to […]

Difficulty is […]
