Hiking Expedition to Saut d’Eau Bay

On Sunday 8th February, the UHFAS journeys to Saut d’Eau Bay, a sheltered bay on the North Coast of Trinidad made famous for a statue of St Peter that was installed on it’s shores. From the bay, the island of Saut d’Eau is visible. This island is one of thirteen government protected wildlife sanctuaries and one of two breeding grounds for Pelicans in the country.

The hike is fairly difficult since a large portion of the trail is on a seep slope surrounded by sweltering rain forests.
