Starting off from the pier, you'll first make your way across the island to the spectacular "Scotland District", an area of undulating landscape overlooking the very scenic east coast. En route, you'll drive past acres of waving sugar cane, and through quaint rural villages with their gaily painted rum shops and chattel houses. The ruggedly beautiful landscape, intriguing architecture and good-natured country folk, combine to make an outing you are sure to enjoy.
Continuing on to the east coast, you'll enjoy the sights of Bathsheba, the most photographed area on the island. Watch the Atlantic breakers pound relentlessly against giant coral boulders and create whirlpools of foaming surf. Afterwards, Ronnie will take you to the Atlantis Hotel for refreshments. This quaint hotel is hidden in a beautiful fishing village known as 'Tent Bay' which also offers up some great photo opportunities.
Following your refreshment break, you'll make the leisurely drive back to the cruise ship pier.
