Headed up the hill with little expectation but there was a lovely view from the top, as well as the ruins of an old small fort and cannon. Some more information would be beneficial but other wise it was a very pleasant day out.

It takes about 30 minutes from Rosseau to get here by public transportation or your own car. The climb to the top takes roughly 10 minutes, so it is an easy hike. The view is really awesome and I loved it. You don't need to stay here for long and 20 minutes should be sufficient. If you want to go... More

Really worth the climb to the top. A bit a loose gravel/sand with the strong wind made the journey even more fun! The view was absolutely worth it.

After our cruise ship docked, we got a taxi to take us here for snorkeling. He stayed with the van while we were on the beach so it was nice knowing we wouldn't get left without a way back to the ship!!! We had our own equipment and glad we did. There may be somewhere to rent it in the... More

A drive south along the coast from Roseau will get you to Scott's head. The view from the top is stunning and the beach there is really nice as well to cool down after the small hike.

Very beautiful. There is a small strip of land that joins the island to scotts head, on one side is the rough Atlantic Ocean and the other side is the calm Caribbean Sea. The climb to the top is better during sunset, but the time you reach it will be dark and all the lights in the village will make... More

Go there and enjoy the view from the lighthouse down to the village and turkise bay. From the lighthouse, on the left the quiet cove and on the right the caribean sea waves hitting the pebble beach.

Scott's Head is not a long drive from Rousseau, where my husband and I stayed for our honeymoon. The drive is fairly easy and the mountain air is just divine. This was our first stop on our road trip around the island and I'm so happy we went here first. It was a Monday morning so there was not much... More

Scott's Head should definitely be explored after all where can you stroll the path that the 2 deep blues of the Atlantic ocean and the Caribbean sea meet. If you're feeling adventurous, hike up the Hill for amazing scenic views & capture those picture perfect moments. To quench your thirst or snack on something light there's a bar/shack upon the...

Saw a turtle and lots of great fish. Locals were hanging out and pushing weed and fruit on the tourists though.
