My walk today took me up to the old ruins of the Leinster Bay Estate House, built back in the 1700's for James Murphy. The ruins are off of the Johnny Horn Trail, which is connected to Leinster Bay Trail on the eastern end of the beach at Waterlemon bay. The ruins are located on top of a hillside and provide an amazing view of St. John; Annaberg, Mary Point, Water Bay, Leinster Bay, and Brown Bay. One can also see Fungi Passage, between Whistling Cay and Mary Point as well as Great Thatch, Little Thatch, and Tortola. The old estate has also been called Windy Hill and The Bad Boys Home.

You can see The Bad Boys Home Ruins up on top of the hill on the right.
 Take the second right at the bush :)

 Waterlemon Cay has amazing snorkeling.

 This is the view looking over Tortola, Little Thatch, and Drakes Passage.

This is a view of Leinster Bay, Waterlemon Cay, Mary Point, and Great Thatch Island.


For the best hiking information pick up a copy of Feet, Fins & Four - Wheel Drive by Pam Gaffin.
