The Clabony Sulphur Springs is tucked away in the hills of Byelands St Andrew which is also the source of the Clabony bottled water. Getting to the springs is a short 2 minute walk from the main dirt road and 10 minutes away from the Footprint air bnb hut perfect for a getaway from the hustle and bustle; totally off the grid.
A soap in the spring is the ideal way to kick back and rejuvenate in the most natural and simplistic way.
Natural spring – water is warmer and bubbly. *Orange colour on the stones is sulphur.
A relatively short but bumpy drive from the main road takes you to the Crochu harbour point in St. David- the location of Cabier Ocean Lodge. where you have a 180 degree view of the sea. Although St David is the only parish which lacks a town it makes up in cozy points with great potential for beautiful developments.
I had the pleasure of visiting the lodge after Caribbean Youth Environment Network CYEN hosted a sargassum beach clean up of the nearby Cabier beach for World Oceans Day celebrated on June 9th.
